About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Qualified Supervisor in the
State of Florida. I earned my Masters Degree in Counseling from Nova
Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2000. I have 20
years of professional counseling with a wide range of clinical training.
I have been able to assist individuals, couples and/or families deal
with life stressors with a focus on the presenting diagnostic issues:
depression, anxiety, mood, domestic violence, child welfare, dependency,
delinquency, parent/child conflict and trauma issues to name a few. I've
worked as a Foster Care Worker, Child Protective Services Counselor
and Protective Investigator in the State of Florida. I have years of
experience working with the Court System, Educational System and other community providers.

My counseling style is Eclectic Therapy with a primary focus on Client
Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy models. I view myself
as eclectic because my intervention style is based on the assessment
process and what I see from an individualized standpoint is helping the
individual/couple/family achieve their specific needs and achieve success.

I am excited that you and/or your family have made a decision to
identify life issues/stressors and seek help for the concerns that
continue to be unresolved. This is truly tough love when we are able to
hang in there and provide therapeutic support for each other.

I look forward to the journal to success and being BETTER! :)

Linda, is very professional and at the same time relatable and puts me at ease to open up and discuss my issues. The sound advice provided as well as the worksheets are very helpful to me. After my sessions with Linda I feel as though a load has been lifted, I feel lighter and also a sense of relief.

Linda was extremely compassionate and I learned a lot from her. She was always on point as she understood exactly how I felt. Always replied to my messages and always on time for our sessions.
