Thank you for spending a few moments with me. I'm Linda Close a Licensed Mental Health Counselor located in Florida and have over 12 years experience working as a mental health counselor. I hold a Masters Degree in Mental Health from FAU College of Education. I provide services in English for individuals, families, couples, and small groups.
I understand that every person needs respect, understanding and compassion which motivates me to provide a personal touch centered on your concerns and goals through a warm, comfortable, and friendly environment. We will focus on identifying your strengths, which will be a big part of your ability in overcoming obstacles and meeting your goals, your mental, emotional and relational needs to build skills to help you overcome and thrive.
You are not alone. Counseling is about processing and working through events and experiences with someone who can guide and nurture your own intuitive nature. My strength is in past traumas and parenting as those are the first and most impacting relationships. I will help you to build healthier ways to cope with and understand the dynamics of anxiety, depression, anger, apathy and other fears. If you wish to build a support structure in developing and maintaining meaningful and healthy relationships through boundaries, or simply need support to adjust to the unexpected ongoing experiences of being a part of the human race we can work there as well. In meeting your goals it is important for you to know that I believe in your ability to overcome whatever challenges you have in your life so you can move forward to live the life you desire.
Your work in counseling will inspire me as your courage, strength, and resiliency will allow you to strive for the harmony you seek. I appreciate the trust you place in our therapeutic relationship and I look forward for the opportunity to work with you.

Linda does an amazing job of listening and providing helpful advice and exercises. I've experienced an extremely traumatic event and she has been able to show me there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Linda is easy to talk to, and she’s very informative. She gives great activities and advice on how to better handle communication issues and stress.
Linda is just wonderful. She has been such a help during a very difficult time.
I’ve been with Linda for almost a month now, and my time with her has been very eye-opening and encouraging. She listens well, asks great questions, and counsels with great empathy and compassion.
I am so thankful for Linda. She has a gentle, kind way of guiding the conversation, and it’s clear to see how much she cares. I feel very lucky that I get to work with her. I would strongly recommend her to anyone as a counselor!
I’ve been working with Linda for about 3 weeks now. She does a great job of not telling you how you feel or why you feel that way, but just asking questions to help you determine these things for yourself. Her goal right off the bat was to get to the root of your problem and work to solve it long term, not just band-aid fixes to get you through the week. I feel very comfortable with her and never like I’m being judged or being forced to give more information than I’d like, although I haven’t felt the need to withhold anything from her anyway!
I love working with Linda. She has helped me tremendously. She listens with a kind, attentive, nonjudgmental ear and offers solutions in a timely manner. She helps guide you to your own inner guidance and gently opens you up so you gain clarity and healing.
Thank you for shining rays of light on my day.
I've already recommended Linda to 2 of my siblings. I feel like, because of her, I'm getting through the most devastating time of my life in a healthier and faster way than I'd ever dreamt possible.
Linda is a pleasure to speak with. She is able to really hone in on certain things and allow you to see things from a different perspective and allow you to grow and work through your issues.
Linda has been a blessing and a gift to the work I am doing. She is kind and caring. She is patient and loving. Linda knows her stuff!!
Linda has been so great for me already, in only the couple of sessions we have had together. She's patient and listens very well, and gives some truly great advice.
Linda has been a breath of fresh air. It has been amazing to have someone I trust to talk to and is honest and caring about things. Amazing woman!
I feel that Linda is the greatest counselor. She is patient, understanding and is very helpful. I am glad I got to talk to with her, and hope I can continue to do so.
So far I am beyond excited to start this journey with her. I’ve never spoken to a counselor before and immediately I was put at ease with her. She has helped me immensely after one live phone session and messages. Thank you!
I was honestly very skeptical of tele therapy at first, but Linda is one of the best therapists I have ever had! She is so knowledgeable and I always leave session feeling like I have gained so much. I highly recommend this service, it has been wonderful for me!
Linda is a great coach. Has a peaceful approach to all matters. Remembers and takes great notes of everything you tell her. She is very knowledgeable and provides a holistic approach to healing. 11 out of 10 rating
Linda has been outstanding in understanding the situation, providing guidance and following up.
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!
