Lynn Hutchinson, Reg. Prov. Psychologist, MC, RSW, Mediator, Arbitrator, and Certified Coach

I am grateful for sunny days and sitting with others. Sometimes, people experience shadowy days that come from circumstances they cannot control. The sunny day disappears. I believe that together we can remove the barriers that block the sun. I value the opportunity to sit with you and be present. To hear your stories, help you heal and one day, the shadows will be gone.




As a client-focused and strength-based therapist, I help people deal with loss, anxiety, unresolved emotional issues and relationship concerns. I help manage their relationships differently, find healthy ways to resolve their issues, and find resolution. I believe people want healthy relationships with others and to feel complete and whole. I believe issues can be resolved by changing how we communicate with the other person. I believe in creating a safe environment for people to be heard, understood and acknowledged.
