Welcome to Walnut Creek Psychotherapy: Enhancing the lives of adults, children and families in the greater East Bay   Dr. Barton LynchHi, I'm Dr. Barton Lynch, founder of Walnut Creek Psychotherapy. Finding a psychologist is an important and personal decision. Generally, most people do not seek psychotherapy until distress and internal hardship become quite unbearable. This can make the process of finding help a daunting task. People are often uncertain about what they truly need to feel better.   As a psychologist in practice for many years, I have been able to help people find relief and lasting change through difficult transitions. My goal is to make your transition into psychotherapy both quick and successful. Therapy is about you and should be tailored to your specific needs.
