About Jason Lynch, MS, LMHC, LCAC, ADS

Are you feeling stressed out and overwhelmed, or concerned that your relationship may be on life support? Are you struggling to overcome a history of physical, emotional, or sexual trauma? Have alcohol and/or drugs become a means of coping with anxiety, depression, grief, or the stressors of daily life? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here. I know this is difficult. You’ve likely been debating seeking help for months, if not years.

I treat individuals and couples with anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, addiction, chronic relapse, anger, low self-esteem, co-dependency, unhealthy sexual behaviors, grief and loss, infidelity, poor communication, loss of intimacy, and loss of trust. I am certified as a Clinical Trauma Professional and trained in the use of EMDR Therapy.

I strongly value the client-therapist relationship and heavily emphasize building rapport with clients. Many clients will see a therapist for one session and never return, citing a lack of rapport with the therapist as the reason for discontinuing treatment. I am humbled every day by the fact that clients choose to share their lives with me.

The first step in beginning the counseling process is to do some homework.

I'm so sorry to hear that you don't feel as though your family would support you in embracing your true self.

I frequently work with individuals who develop same-sex attraction later in life. Humans have a tendency to think of things in absolutes. Black or white. Good or bad. Gay or straight. In fact, much of life is lived in the "grey" that lies in between the extremes. This is especially true of sexual... more

Ultimately, your family member must make the decision for themselves that they are ready to stop using drugs and alcohol.

It sounds as though there is a need to establish some healthy boundaries with your mother. Simply put, a boundary is a line or space between you and another person.

I worked for an organization that had a similar policy, although I'm not aware of it ever being enforced. Most of the employees were in recovery and active in 12-step programs.
