About Me

Hello, I am Linda,, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in Florida with 12 years of experience working as a counselor and life coach. I am in my 11th year in private practice. The bulk of my work is with individuals, parents, families, and couples with a wide range of matters that include communications, relationships, parenting needs, and trauma affecting emotions, perceptions, childhood value systems, physical injuries, emotional abuse, and grief and loss. I have personal and professional experience in learning and helping others to work with disabilities, limiting chronic health issues, as well as anger, anxiety, depression and spiritual reflections.

My counseling style is holistic and eclectic employing elements from a range of therapeutic techniques, with the goal of establishing a course that is personally tailored to meet your specific needs. The atmosphere I provide is warm and interactive including work for in-between sessions that is personally tailored towards the goals you are working to achieve. I am a safe space for you to open up about your thoughts and feelings with confidentiality. I do not engage in judging or criticizing. I believe everyone deserves respect, sensitivity, and compassion, to maintain the integrity of their character. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan for your unique and specific needs.

I look forward to working with you.

Linda is a great listener. Very easy to open up to. She has taught me how to set boundaries a biggy that I had struggled with for years. I look forward to our sessions very much.

Linda has been very helpful thus far in my quest to work on some personal and relationship problems. She is understanding and what she writes to me is very clear and easy to understand. She breaks processes down into manageable steps so it's not so overwhelming to work on a problem. I look forward to working with her more!
