About Me Lynell graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Masters of Arts degree in Community Counseling, with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. Lynell has been a psychotherapist in Colorado and California. Her work in non-profit agencies for over ten years provided valuable experience counseling at-risk youth, children with special needs and their families. Her spectrum of knowledge expands from teaching parenting education classes, counseling K-12 and university students in an academic setting, and working with Hospice. These diverse opportunities nurtured her passion for working with individuals in all aspects of their lives. In Rapid City, her practice specializes in couples, individuals, teens, families, and EMDR. As a private practitioner she works with a broad spectrum of clients.

What is EMDR? EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a therapeutic process utilizing either eye movements, sound or pulsations to stimulate both hemispheres of the brain. This approach brings about changes in the brain that helps a person move into a state of balance. It can be used to reduce symptoms related to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), reduce fears and anxiety, as well as for strengthening feelings of calm and confidence.
