Lyn Truesdell, PsyD

Geropsychology, Depression, Anxiety, Adolescence

Dr. Truesdell has the ability to establish quick rapport and a sense of calm and hope. After working with her for a brief time, clients become aware of her sincere commitment to their well-being, and know that she truly cares about and understands their interests and frustrations.  She specializes in and works with many anxiety disorders, depression, grief, older adults, caregivers, adolescents, and parenting issues. Additionally, she still provides volunteer counseling services to students that have been suspended or expelled from middle and high schools.

With a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, Dr. Truesdell later earned her doctorate in Counseling Psychology at Trinity College of Graduate Studies, and completed her internship counseling at-risk adolescents and their parents in a program connected with the juvenile justice system and the local school districts.  She has conducted extensive doctoral research on the treatment for late­ life depression, and works in her practice with the knowledge that many challenges, including depression, can be treated effectively at any age.

Before starting her doctorate studies in Psychology, Dr. Truesdell was an elementary school teacher, and was later a frequently requested substitute teacher in the local high schools. Her past experience also includes working for many years with an international tour company as an operations supervisor and tour director in the United States, and a tour representative in Switzerland.

Outside interests include traveling (near and far), hiking, horseback riding, frisbee, knitting, and watching college football (Oregon Ducks and Ohio State Buckeyes specifically).

Insurance Accepted: Dr. Truesdell is a Medicare provider. For all other insurance companies, she will provide a Superbill as an Out-­of­-Network provider for your convenience. (Most insurance companies will reimburse for a Superbill very readily.) Payment is accepted by all major credit cards, checks or cash.
