Lynn Jackson Dorman, LMHC, Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Saint Petersburg, FL


I believe in healing couples and helping them find a way towards the shared life that they can lead together. I use the Gottman Method in working with couples using their tools and psychoeducation to increase couples’ capacity for healthy conflict resolution, developing positive shared meaning in their lives together, and building, creating, and maintaining a positive lens and feeling around their shared lives. My therapeutic approach "in the room" uses radical and caring honesty and candor. My individual therapy is steeped in compassion, acceptance, honesty and empowerment and is undergirded by four modalities: firstly, the intersection of Western and Eastern thinking with focus on meditation, mindfulness, Buddhist and Taoist thinking, and eastern movement; secondly, a psychodynamic orientation with exploration on how the lens of our past shapes our present and future as applied to marriage and divorce, parenting, career, intimacy and relationships; thirdly, a scientific thinking approach including Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy to manage thinking, feeling, and behaving resulting in life being less frenetic, more in control, and more evenly paced; lastly, CBT to challenge beliefs and ways of thinking in order to be able to live more fully and happily. Unlike many practitioners, I add the use of hypnotherapy to work with memories and to “erase and reframe” areas where clients are stuck.
My goal with couples is to help them find shared meaning in order to create their future. Clients will leave the experience being able to explore, connect, heal, and thrive outside of the therapeutic space.
My experience is in cognitive behavioral interventions, positive psychology, motivational interviewing Adlerian Therapy, Mindfulness Practices, and grief work; I am certified in Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching and trained in couples therapy (Gottman Level I). I served in the US Army for over two decades and have significant experience in working with military members, military families, and veterans in a variety of capacities.
