About Me

My name is Lynn Higgins. I began my career as a dance/movement therapist in the early 80's, studying in Cambridge, MA. Movement and non-verbal behavior is the place where feelings live. Our body tells the story of what is truly in our hearts. As a child, I struggled to understand myself. Had I had someone in my life to help me understand myself I would have struggled less and achieved my goals with less adversity. Feeling the support and guidance of someone we can trust is essential in feeling like we can grow in a healthy direction. Throughout my education as a Social Worker and then as a Psychoanalyst, I have come to deeply appreciate the human struggle we all feel. Thank you for the opportunity to share in this mutual experience. Together.
