About Me

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.

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!

She is easy to speak with and takes time to help me understand what I am feeling and how I can manage my feelings. Linda helps me find solutions to my worries or stressful situations.

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!
