Lynne Saks, BA, MFTSpeaks Africaans (she/her)

Superivised by Dr. Pamela Reeves

Hi my name’s Lynne Saks.  Life can be a confusing, meandering path that we all are trying to make sense of. Along the journey we can feel misunderstood, unsupported and alone. My journey to becoming a therapist has been informed by the richness of life experiences that being an immigrant, a mother, a daughter and community member has brought. My life experiences have often shown me the greatest therapeutic moments come from the power of being heard without judgment and embraced with full acceptance. I practice a person centered, trauma informed culturally humble approach that honors the strengths, values, views and experiences you bring to therapy. My goal is to create a safe space by cultivating a shared authenticity and trust as we collaborate in clarifying your values and move towards a valued, fulfilling life. You are the expert on yourself, my job is to help you to apply that expertise in a way that makes you feel empowered in moving through life.

I have a special interest in working with children and adolescents. I believe that  storytelling, imaginative play, props such as dolls and puppets, as well as theater techniques like improvisation and performance help children to explore their feelings, connect with others, and problem-solve difficult situations. I also work with people who have experienced trauma and have walked aside people during acute crisis. I have worked with people who have experienced domestic violence, providing trauma intervention.

 I am currently a Marriage and Family Therapist Trainee and am supervised by Dr. Pamela Reeves, LMFT #51463. It would be a privilege to work together.
