Professional Biography

Lynn-WinstenMy training in Clinical Psychology has extended throughout my 30 year professional career. My first experiences as a clinician were in the hospitals and clinics of New York City where I trained to work with people with all levels and types of psychological problems; I specialized in the treatment of pain and other physical disorders with a psychological component.

When I came to California 30 years ago I quickly found that people with histories of abuse, trauma, neglect, domestic violence and substance abuse were drawn to working with me. I then spent many years studying with consultants who were expert in such conditions.

During the past 10 years I formally trained to be a supervisor and consultant at The Psychotherapy Institute’s Supervision Study Program. I am available for Supervision or Consultation of other clinicians and welcomes all inquiries.
