Read Biography


Lynn Jimenez, LCSW, Founder, Connect Flow Grow

I am a Mom, Therapist (Licensed Clinical Social Worker), and Yoga Instructor. Connect. Flow. Grow. was born out of experiences from all three areas.

One of the things I get really excited about (if you know me, you know there are many), is the healing power of a positive, nurturing relationship. The relationship I cultivate with clients is valuable, and helping them be a part of a supportive community is PRICELESS. This is why I LOVE circles. Circles help us build community, interpersonal skills, and intimacy. When we feel safe, we allow ourselves to be vulnerable. These are the moments when magic happens.

We show up best for others when we are at our best. For me, that means taking care of my mind and body (my go to’s are yoga, Crossfit, and meditation). I have been practicing yoga on and off since 2006 and it’s helped me develop a mind-body awareness, reduce my anxiety, and manage everyday stress.

I’ve since introduced my boys to yoga because I want them to have the same benefits, and it’s working. When I notice they are dealing with big emotions, I can prompt them to breathe through it. We practice together, and it continues to bring us closer together.

The tools I’m offering are simple and adaptable and designed for you to use at home. Let’s connect so I can share them with you, because as much as I love being witness to your loved ones deepest thoughts and feelings, I know you will love it more.
