Counselor Lyn Manzi, MEd, MA, RN, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Is your child struggling in school with learning challenges?

Are learning issues causing behavior problems?

I work with children and adolescents who have ADHD, learning disabilities, and medical issues that impact their performance and behavior in school. Because learning challenges can lead to behavior problems, then to emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, and decreased self-esteem, my treatment approach focuses on the connections between academic, behavior, and emotional issues. Combining 10 years experience as a registered nurse, 15 years as a teacher of ADHD and LD students, and 17 years as the mother of a son with ADHD, I strive, as a counselor, to help my clients and their parents find practical solutions for school and home.

Are you an adult with ADHD?

Whether you are newly diagnosed or continuing to struggle with the daily challenges of ADHD, you may be experiencing difficulties in your personal and professional relationships.

Are you forgetful, often late, or frequently fail to finish a task?

Adult ADHD frequently affects work performance and can frustrate your friends and family. However, are you also creative, inventive, and able to think outside the box? I can help you master tools for organization, memory, and prioritization so you can learn to control the negative aspects of ADHD and maximize the positive.

Are you dealing with chronic illness or a caregiver?

As an RN in outpatient and inpatient oncology, I was privileged to help with palliative and end-of-life care. In addition, I experienced life-threatening illness with my husband as he battled leukemia. As a counselor, I can use my professional knowledge and personal experience to help children, adults, and their families deal with the many challenges of serious illness.

Also, I work with children who may not have a learning issue but are dealing with the challenges of a life transition or a traumatic event. I have experience with child grief and trauma, especially crisis management, in addition to anxiety, depression, and anger. I enjoy seeing adults who want to work on anxiety, depression, and trauma recovery.

I earned a Master’s Degree in Education from The Citadel, a BSN-RN from the Medical University of South Carolina, and my Master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University.
