Hello, my name is Lynda Gordon. I am four years shy of being an Arizona native. My father’s military career first took me to Michigan and then Japan. After obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Sociology from Arizona State University, I went on to earn a Master of Counseling degree from the University of Phoenix. A few years later, I found the urge to pursue a five-year doctoral degree in Psychology at Argosy University, while adding two additional beautiful children to complete our family of six.

As an Arizona certified school psychologist, I have held positions as a clinical specialist and a site administrator for a private therapeutic day school. While conducting educational and psychological evaluations, I provided services to youth and families with various emotional, behavioral, social, and communicative disorders.

I bring over 25 years of experience working with children, adults, and families while working in-home, agency, and school-base settings. Today, my work continues as a Life Coaching/Psychologist Intern providing individual counseling services to individuals of all ages. Additionally, I am a contract Court Appointed Advisor with the Maricopa County Superior Court. I investigate the facts in a legal decision-making/parenting time dispute between parents/grandparents. Then, I compile a report rendering a clinical perspective in the best interest of the minor children. Most cases involve allegations of mental health, abuse, neglect, drug use, domestic violence, or a combination. My experience also extends to facilitating diversion classes for offenders of drug/alcohol, domestic violence, and anger-related charges.

My dream of becoming a licensed psychologist was deferred but not lost. What obstacles or life happenings are interfering with your dreams? I would love to provide counseling, support, and guidance as you achieve contentment. I utilize spirituality, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness, grounding techniques, art, and other activities to promote wellness.
