Biography: Johanna Lynn
Science tells us that our biography becomes our biology.
Your family lives on within you – think of it as your emotional inheritance – and these imprints continue to influence you.
The good news about epigenetics is that you can release how you hold the past within.
One of the most amazing aspects of the brain is that it is changeable. Neuroplasticity gives us the proof we need to know that the brain can overcome early or inherited negative epigenetic changes.
Often people hear about my work when their relationships are strained – within their marriage or challenges with their parents, in-laws or siblings. Parents seeking the best ways to support their children or navigating separation and co-parenting.
Including those who feel like they’ve tried everything and are still seeking solutions.
Clients reach out when they are up against familiar yet painful patterns or to explore mysterious or stubborn symptoms. Often they will share how many other specialists they have worked with and are still seeking results.
I’m fascinated by what parents share with their children, the invisible stuff passed along in our very DNA. My superpower is listening like a detective to the facts of your family history, the words you use to describe your challenges lead me to where we need to begin to work offering up freedom, insight and new perspectives.
Our earliest experiences, while we don’t consciously remember them, have a profound influence on how we live our lives. I work with what the body remembers and the knowledge that we are more than our own individual experiences.
The family story is our story – in every way it lives on in us. The challenges we face in life are not ours alone, they are shared across multiple generations.
My most focused areas of study have been Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, Family Constellations, Integrative Body Psychotherapy, Inherited Family Trauma and The Core Language Approach. I’ve spent years studying how language and our inner images intertwine. In working together with clients, I tune into the unique language of each client, which often leads us to the very root of an issue.

When I’m not offering workshops or working with clients privately, you can find me curled up with a good book or out playing in nature with my husband and our son.
We love to hike, bike ride, go camping and find adventures in beautiful national parks. I feel most comfortable when conversations are real and deep. Conversations where people talk about what inspires them, about what moves their heart into action, about what truly matters to them.
I’ve always had a natural love of learning and find the entire field of mind-body medicine fascinating. I am quite sure I’ll be a life-long student of this body of knowledge! My book collection looks as if an entire room of my home is a library. My sister, who is actually a librarian will often ask me when I’m planning to read a book for fun. The truth is, if you ran into me at the beach, I’d probably reading a book about neurotransmitters… and devouring every word of it.
