About Lynn Louise Wonders and Wonders Counseling
About the Company. . .
Wonders Counseling Services, LLC, a licensed counselor in Marietta GA, was originally founded in 2012 when I sold my former group practice to a colleague in order to forge a new direction and focus for my work. Wonders Counseling was a small group practice, contracting with a number of highly skilled therapists and was under the umbrella of the Wonders Wellness Center.
In 2017, I decided shift away from managing a group practice and return to a solo private practice where I am fully focusing my time and energy on helping counseling clients, coaching clients and professionals with growth and positive change.
About Lynn. . .
Lynn Louise Wonders, LPC, RPT-S, CPCS, DCC, E-RYT
I completed my masters degree in psychology and professional counseling at Georgia School of Professional Psychology (Now Argosy University) in 2003. I was an Associate Professional Counselor from 2003-2007 and thenI fully licensed professional counselor in 2007. I became a certified professional counselor supervisor (CPCS) in the state of Georgia since 2013. I am a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S) and an APT Approved Provider (#12-321) of continuing play therapy education for therapists. I completed the Association for Play Therapy Leadership Academy and I lead a large community of play therapists online who are growing and developing their career in the field of play therapy. My career began working with preschool age children and families using play-based interventions and went on to become a leader and trainer in the field of play therapy.
Having been trained at the advance level with Drs. John and Julie Gottman of the Gottman Institute in couples counseling along with training in Imago and Adlerian couples and family therapy, I currently see many couples through my specialized amalgam of therapeutic approaches to assisting couples in learning more effective means of connecting and communicating in a short-term therapy process.
In 2016 I had the privilege of training with Jack Canfield, original co-creator of Chicken Soup for the Soul and author of The Success Principles and has been certified as a Canfield Success Principles Coach & Trainer. I bring much of this work into my services in providing professional and business coaching and consultation for therapists and other helping professionals.
As part of my own self care, I have long, extensive training and years of teaching and practicing yoga, meditation, aromatherapy and relaxation therapies over a 20+ year span. While I have retired from teaching yoga, my mind-body awareness approach all of my work helps clients to grow through their challenges more readily. I have been teaching the practice of mindfulness since long before it was such a well known topic of study and practice and I still lead mindfulness and meditation classes 2-3 Sundays each month.
During my career as a professional counselor, I have served as Family Services Director at an early childhood development center, implemented a successful emotion education program in preschools state-wide, have owned and directed two thriving counseling centers, owned and operated a yoga studio and have served in numerous volunteer positions on the local, national and international levels. I still serve as the Early Childhood Specialist for Primrose Schools and contribute monthly to the popular Primrose Parenting Blog.
