Comprehensive Counseling and Psychotherapy Sessions

The Expert in Therapy with a Coaching Edge

Proactive Therapy or Life and Career/Executive Coaching To Improve Your Personal LIfe and Your Professional Experience

Counseling Silver Spring With Lynn Grodzki, LCSW, MCC (Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Master Certified Coach) offers online therapy and teletherapy services during this pandemic. With more than 30 years of experience, Lynn provides clients in Silver Spring, Maryland with both psychotherapy or life and career/executive coaching via phone or video platforms.


I offer therapy and counseling with a proactive coaching style and incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in my one-on-one sessions. I am a senior, licensed psychotherapist with a solution-oriented, practical approach.

My model, Therapy with a Coaching Edge, has been defined in the 2018 book of the same name. I am combining comprehensive psychotherapy skills with the best in a coaching approach, and over thirty year's of clinical experience to provide you with an action-oriented method of therapy.

With careful listening, powerful questions, and therapeutic assessment, I am able to help people find results and make behavioral change. I employ a traditional, psychodynamic therapeutic method, as well as a short-term coaching style.

Life and Career/Executive coaching is not therapy. Instead, it is a proactive and strategic dialogue to help you define and achieve your personal and professional goals. I will help you assess your strengths, problem-solve your challenges and plan for a stronger path forward.

I am a Master Certified Coach, the highest level of certification afforded by the International Coach Federation (ICF). I am also a faculty member of Coach U, a large coaching organization that helps new coaches learn to coach. I work with coaching clients in person when possible or during this pandemic by phone, or via Skype. I have clients from around the US and residing in Europe, Canada, Australia and Asia. 

Create a vision for a satisfying, meaningful life. Set up an action plan and move forward with accountability. Take the first step to clarify your goals by answering my coaching survey.

Life and Career Coaching
Lynn Grodzki book cover

In this book, I offer a new, paradigm-changing therapy model—adding the leverage and action of a coaching approach to the wisdom and goals of psychotherapy.

I have a set of powerful coaching strategies that have been adapted and designed specifically for therapy. My goal is to provide more reach and range for therapists, counselors and their clients, without requiring a wholesale abandonment of therapeutic principles.

Using this model, therapists at all levels of experience can promote behavioral change without insisting on homework or rigid protocols. Clients can spot results in each session. Resistance to treatment often softens and client retention improves.

I have become a trusted voice for therapists through my writings and workshops for the past 3 decades. By offering various methods, I make the steps to using a coaching approach within the principles and purposes of psychotherapy understandable. Therapy with a Coaching Edge defines my model of therapy that allows my clients to feel more in control of their sessions as they move forward towards their therapeutic goals.
