Lynn Tienken, MS, LMHC

Lynn as a family therapist for 34 years brings her experience as a counselor, parenting facilitator, and faculty trainer in schools to inform her work with couples and parents.  They seek her counsel in managing their children’s behavioral challenges. With the collaboration of the Lake Washington School District, community service groups and a local church she developed a mentoring program for single parent children.  As a single parent mother herself she knew that “resilience and growth” for these children is enhanced through the support of a “village.”

Lynn’s love of learning with couples—those struggling to keep their relationship or just keep their relationship healthy–gives direction and purpose to her counseling sessions.  Her clarity with couples comes from her early years of work with families going through high conflict divorce.  Her insight and tools for growing intimacy and healthy communication are often a turning point for couples who have lost hope.

Often individuals who are working with Lynn on trauma, anxiety or depression discover relief and change through her insights about their existing relationship challenges.  Her present moment focus redirects their attention to tools that relieve stress and worry.  They learn to be more in the moment with themselves and their intimate relationships.

Away from work, “I love hiking in the mountains with friends and family, exploring cultures in countries throughout the world and just hanging out with my grandkids.’  Sketching and water color painting is a passion that teaches me to better see  life from creative dimensions.
