Who I Am

Dr. Lynne Modzelesky, Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.)

Those closest to me know me as a mother, wife, friend, daughter and sister.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, exploring new places with them, and recently began jogging for self-care. I love the beach, and also true crime podcasts.

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, who has been practicing therapy for 16 years. I have extensive clinical experience with many different populations, have conducted independent research as part of my graduate programs, have taught at the undergraduate level, and currently supervise early career psychologists, trainees and other clinical staff.

 I am licensed in Pennsylvania (017705), California (29009), and North Carolina (6144). I am also a registered Health Service Psychologist (55329).

As a therapist, I enjoy working with women, helping you achieve your goals, and using a flexible approach to tailor your healing to how unique you are as an individual. Therefore, your plan of recovery is specialized to you. Our sessions can include:

-evidence-based therapies

- processing

- person-centered approaches

- integrative therapy

- cognitive-behavioral therapies

- identifying support and practical barriers to your preferred life

I am also an advocate for a whole person approach to healing which can include all aspects of you as a person; such as emotional, physical, spiritual areas, and many others. 

I have enjoyed working with women in all walks of life. I began to see how unique the challenges are to women who are incarcerated or committed to an inpatient psychiatric hospital. After becoming a mother myself, I began to more deeply understand how special it is to raise my own children. I saw myself change, and understand the struggles of career and family competing for my time. I have experienced single motherhood, and realized that as women we can band together and make anything possible. My journey has inspired me to help my fellow woman in need, because when I needed it, I was thankfully fortunate enough to find it. Through my private practice I strive to continue this work and broaden my scope to any woman who wants to heal, recover, and work through situations that could hold someone back from the life they want.
