Lynn C. Smythe, M.S, LMFT 

My intention as a Washington State Licensed Therapist is to provide a professional space for Individuals, Couples, Children and Families to identify, explore and manage the issues that produce emotional distress and/or relational dysfunction in their everyday lives.

I take into account the whole person using a systems perspective that listens to the individual within the context of their biological disposition, interpersonal neurobiology, family dynamics, emotional processes, thought patterns, social influences and spiritual values, as requested on a case by case basis.

This is a collaborative process, creating new solutions for old problems.
