Lynda Flatt


Licensed Therapist, LPC


OCD creates unwanted thoughts from your deepest fears that can make you question your values and what you believe in. I want to know that you have nothing to be ashamed of because you are not your OCD thoughts. Learning how to not go through spells of anxiety from intrusive thoughts is not easy. I'm here to show you how to face them and eventually allow intrusive thoughts to pass by like any other thought that crosses your mind. I am big on building rapport and trust. It's essential that you feel comfortable during our sessions to feel safe as you open up about your problems. I'm here to listen and pay attention to the details that you describe during our time so you can conclude treatment knowing that you're strong enough to face OCD on your own.

Get to know Lynda Flatt

I was interested in it from an early age. My introduction to psychology was watching the movie Sybil as a teenager. I found that dynamic fascinating—a therapist who's really trying to help someone and ends up really making a difference in her life. When I went to college, I knew that's what I wanted to do, and I've never changed my mind. I would go to the college bookstore and see textbooks on tax law, accounting or business management, and I'd think, 'How could anybody be interested in that, when right over here there are books on abnormal psychology and family systems?'

I've always been more interested in it. I'd worked for a psychiatrist and at a psych hospital and only encountered OCD a few times. So when I got the opportunity to specialize, I thought it would be really interesting. It is, and I really love the population.

On top of OCD, I've mostly worked with depression, anxiety and PTSD. To me, they're underneath many other diagnoses. Somebody might come for trauma, but you have to look at what else is going on.

It might seem counterintuitive: I'm going to ask you to do things you've been avoiding for a long time. But this is a team sport. We're in this together. I'm not going to ask you to do something I wouldn't do. We're going to focus on exactly where you need to go, and take small steps together. In therapy, it's like we're in a car. You're driving the car. You're deciding how fast we go and in which direction. I've got some ideas and some maps, and I've been here before, so I can help you. But this is your journey.

Know that it's really common for people to be afraid or ashamed to talk about things. It's OK to wait until you feel a lot more comfortable. We can start out with some things that are lower on the discomfort level for you, until you can build trust and know this is a safe place. There's no judgment here. I know you probably feel afraid you might be judged. But I am not going to judge you as a person based on what your thoughts are. You can talk about what you want to talk about. You can wait and talk about it later too. There's no pressure.

Lynda is patient and understanding as always. I honestly hadn't done the best with doing my exercises this past weak, but there was no criticism, only a desire to understand what was keeping me from doing them. She creates a safe environment where I can be honest.
