After earning a dual degree in mental health and substance abuse treatment, I began to work with clients who were recovering from opioid abuse and co-occurring disorders. This gave me the unique capacity to help clients not only with addiction, but also trauma, stress, depression, self-compassion, guilt & shame, anger, and anxiety among many other issues. In addition to general counseling services, I specialize in process addictions such as shopping, food, video gaming, Internet, exercise, gambling, and sex and love addictions.
I have worked with many clients in the LGBTQIA community and value diversity for others and myself. I have the knowledge and skills to work with clients who struggle with sexual identity and help emotionally work through many issues that arise as a result of sexual trauma, grief or dysfunction. I also work with many clients who open and/or non-monogamous relationships. I believe that acceptance and empowerment is the foundation of this work.
I use my accumulated skills to help you identify what is holding you back and how your past helps you identify your strengths to achieve the life you want. I can use a variety of approaches to fit your needs.

Just started working with Linda and she has been great! Very kind and offers practical advice. I felt better right after my session!
Linda is very understanding and is always trying to work with you! Best therapist I've ever had!
Linda is my very first therapist. It has been a great experience. She messages me every night at 10:30 and I look forward to it.
Linda makes me feel heard and understood and very supported. She also reminds me that it's okay to be upset by decisions other people have made and to stop giving them excuses. She's the best.
Lots covered during counseling sessions. I appreciate the messaged sent throughout the week and Linda's detailed summary of counseling sessions. I reread them frequently.
Linda is extremely supportive, attentive, and gives intelligent and helpful advice. I'm very grateful to have found her!
