Lynn Louise Wonders, MA, LPC, CPCS, RPT-S
Lynn Louise Wonders has been licensed and certified as a professional counselor and supervisor in the state of Georgia since 2007. She is a registered play therapist-supervisor and since 2010 she has provided play therapy training, supervision and consultation. She is the author of 12 therapeutic children's books (and counting!), author of multiple play therapy related academic book chapters, co-editor and author of a nature play therapy book and a treatment planning book for children and families. She has been a teacher of meditation, yoga, tai chi, and qi gong since 1995, and all of this background informs her style of supervision! Lynn is a prescriptive play therapist who believes that while the foundation of all effective play therapy must be relational and child-centered, there are many times children and families need a more facilitative and invitational approach in which the therapist provides more directive opportunity for the child and family to participate in play-based and expressive therapeutic activities. Lynn has trained in multiple play therapy theories including child centered play therapy, cognitive behavioral play therapy, family play therapy, AutPlay therapy, FirstPlay therapy, Adlerian play therapy, Jungian play therapy, Gestalt play therapy, Synergetic play therapy, and relational neurobiological sand tray therapy. She uses a mindfulness-based approach to all play therapy and encourages supervisees to do the same as it enhances the therapeutic alliance which is essential regardless of what approach to play therapy is chosen. Lynn has a special expertise in helping therapist navigate high conflict divorce and custody cases as well. Her supervision style is rooted in two developmental supervision models believing that as a supervisor she must meet supervisees where they are in their professional development and adjust her approach depending on the needs of each individual supervisee. She is currently a candidate for a PhD in psychology at Saybrook University.
