Lynn Grodzki, LCSW, MCC is one of the leading business coaches in the US for small business owners. She specializes in working with change-agents: therapists, coaches, healers, and other helping professionals.
Through her workshops and writing, she has become a pioneer in the field of practice-building, helping non-business-oriented professionals develop their private practices. With Lynn’s guidance, tens of thousands of professionals now operate small businesses that offer them a high degree of integrity as well as enhanced financial success.
After receiving an undergraduate degree in Design, Lynn worked as an executive in the family business. She left to get a Masters in Social Work in 1988 from the University of Maryland and became a psychotherapist in private practice (see her therapy services at: www.counselingsilverspring.com.)
In 1996, Lynn combined her earlier interest in entrepreneurship with her love of psychotherapy and became a business coach for therapists and healing professionals. She began teaching her Private Practice Success Program (TM) and in 2000, published her best-selling book: Building Your Ideal Private Practice (WW Norton.) Lynn formalized her coach training to help her work with professionals and is now a Master Certified Coach (through the International Coach Federation) and a faculty member for CoachU, a large coach training organization.
She is the author of five books about practice-building for therapists, coaches, and consultants, all published by W.W. Norton, most recently revising her original book for a much-awaited Building Your Ideal Private Practice: 2nd Edition. Her articles on practice-building appear in national magazines such as the Psychotherapy Networker and Social Work Today. She presents workshops internationally and writes a monthly email newsletter that is read by over 10,000 subscribers.
Lynn still maintains a psychotherapy private practice, specializing in working with the “worried well” — adults who are successful in some areas of life and need help in others. She combines psychotherapy with a coaching approach, to offer an honest, direct method of therapy. See her counseling services at www.counselingsilverspring.com.
