Lynette Prescott, MA LMSW

Lynette’s professional work with children and families began in the early childhood classrooms of a PreK-9 independent school. She taught and designed curricula with particular emphasis on the social emotional growth of young children. She also worked with adolescents both in acute care settings and secondary school classrooms, designing and teaching courses in ethics, decision making, mindfulness, and therapeutic writing. Seeking to meet children of all ages in authentic relationships, Lynette’s goal has always been to cultivate space that invites a child’s thriving.

As a psychotherapist, Lynette works with families, couples and parents, young adults, adolescents, and children. A compassionate and creative therapist, she collaborates with clients, tuning in to and elevating existing strengths while supporting the development of new skills and perspectives. Together with clients, she explores family patterns, provoking new ways of seeing and strengthening relationships. Lynette is an eclectic and integrative practitioner, a deep listener, nurturing and attentive to the therapeutic alliance. Depending on individual client needs, elements of CBT, positive psychology, mindfulness, emotionally focused therapy, narrative, and play therapy may be employed to support desired change and growth. For Lynette, creativity and psychodynamic understanding inform every therapeutic partnership.
