Dr. Cécile Lyons


My mission is to recognize opportunity for growth, facilitate resolution of problems, and enable a person to realize purpose and potential.

I am a confidant, ally, and resource, whether you are seeking personal growth or struggling with life challenges. Sometimes I will be in front of you offering guidance, other times behind you giving encouragement, but always alongside you providing profound regard, deep listening, and a compassionate perspective informed by knowledge and wisdom accrued in years of study and experience.

With discovery comes purpose and vitality.
With belief comes hope and possibility.

Discovery & Belief — together — enable you to transform challenge into opportunity and realize your potential.

Get Started

What is Psychotherapy?

Drawing on years of study, training, and experience, a psychotherapist is a catalyst for self-discovery, growth, and change. Sometimes confidant and ally, sometimes mentor or provocateur, the psychologist creates a safe space to explore and address alternatives for a more fulfilled life and meaningful relationships. Psychological methods, in-person meetings, and prescriptions for attainable actions are directed to helping a person improve their mental health and overall wellbeing.

By working with a psychotherapist, you will develop more self-understanding and appreciation, discover unrecognized strengths, build resilience, expand capacity to resolve problems when they arise, and improve your ability to realize personal intentions and potential.
