More history and details

Wonders Counseling Services, LLC was founded in 2012 after Lynn Louise Wonders sold her full-size, thriving group practice she founded in 2007 in order to move away from managing the large clinical practice and create a more boutique-style, holistic-based private practice. Lynn founded and ran an adjacent holistic wellness center from 2013 – 2018 providing yoga, meditation, aromatherapy and holistic wellness classes and consultation contracting with a number of certified and licensed practitioners.

Lynn was an Experienced-Registered and Certified Yoga and Meditation Instructor for many years blending mind-body-breath awareness and practice with holistic psychotherapy services for all ages with a focus on children and families. The company is rooted in this rich history and remains dedicated to a holistic perspective in supporting people and the greater community.

As Lynn’s vision continued to evolve, she was increasingly being invited to lead continuing education training at conferences and for various large mental health care divisions of hospitals and other institutions as well as a rapidly growing number of career building consultation requests from therapists. Lynn has published articles frequently and has been asked to serve as early childhood specialist for a national child development corporation in 2013 and served as national spokesperson for this organization on a campaign to support working parents of young children in 2018.

She launched an online community and training platform for therapists wanting to build a career in play therapy that grew to over 5000 regular members by 2018. By then there were more and more requests for business building and case consultation support coming in every week.

In 2017 Lynn stopped accepting new therapy clients temporarily to give time to begin the process of reducing her counseling case load to make time and space for more writing, training and consultation work with professionals. In 2019 she published her first book in support of child therapists providing services for families going through high conflict divorce and custody. She continues to train therapists and provide professional consultation to therapists on this topic nationwide, traveling extensively to do so.

Wonders Counseling Services, LLC expanded to include Wonders Counseling & Consulting in 2018 and is now serves the needs of therapists and helping professionals working with children and families, needing support in building and expanding the business of private practice in the field of play therapy.

Lynn retains her license as a professional counselor and continues to provide clinical services for a small number of counseling clients metro Atlanta, Georgia.
