Please note that at this time, due to COVID-19, all of my counseling services are being offered via phone or video.

Hello. I am Lynn Gutknecht, and I operate a small, independent counseling office on the east side of Madison. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with more than 20 years’ experience in a variety of clinical settings. My current practice is focused on adults, both individuals and couples.

I believe that people have a natural tendency to move toward positive change and growth. But life’s struggles and obstacles can derail those instincts. The conversations that take place in counseling can be healing for a variety of concerns and can help people get back on a positive path.

Many of the people I’ve seen over the years have been working through increased stress, a difficult transition, or a life or relationship problem they’ve been unable to solve on their own. Often, people have been creative in trying multiple solutions to make their situation better, but when those solutions didn’t work, they’ve gotten stuck. Maybe this sounds like what you’ve been experiencing. This is a great time to come in for some short-term counseling: you can get an outside, fresh perspective and can experiment with new solutions to help you get unstuck.
