About Lynn and Wonders Counseling

About the Company. . .

Wonders Counseling Services, LLC 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 to 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.

 

I have shifted away from owning and running a larger center to now providing personalized services for therapy clients locally and professional colleagues and coaching clients worldwide.

Of all the counselors in East Cobb, my work is rather unique in that my services are provided from a holistic model appreciating that human beings grow and heal most effectively when we attend to the whole person by first considering the various parts of who you are and integrating all the strengths of each part. We will look at your environment and lifestyle habits to ensure you are well supported. I believe firmly in establishing a plan for self care in order for your growth and change to take root.

My offices provide an environment that is soothing to the senses, comforting and supportive of healing and growth.IMG_2319

My clients often report they feel more relaxed as soon as the enter my waiting room. I utilize soothing music, aromatherapy, and comfortable furnishings to help you to feel right at home.

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 have been a fully licensed professional counselor since 2007 and a certified professional counselor supervisor in the state of Georgia since 2013. I am a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor 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.

Additionally, I have 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.
