About Me

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, 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.

I tried therapy in a few different forms and settings and nothing seemed to stick. Once I started talking with Linda she just clicked and really had great things to say and challenged me in a lot of ways. She changed my perspective on therapy!

Still working with Linda to see if she is a good fit. Going through a re-diagnosis as she feels she does not have enough information to understand the cause of my anxiety.

Linda is an absolute gem of a person. Her skills and expertise are apparent every session and I would recommend her to everyone, unless it would mean she might have less time to help me, haha!

Written by C.A. on Jan 04, 2022 after therapy with Linda for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and adhd

Linda is always prepared for what a session might bring, whether it be laughs or tears she's equipped to provide solutions or just listen. She's helped me through figuring out complex emotions, and how to navigate through life without letting them disrupt my day to day life. Finding my identity after separation, and whether I was making decisions for me. I couldn't have pictured anyone else helping me through this journey.

Linda is a well-educated and nonjudgemental professional with whom I have been able to share easily and feel supported in the process. Linda is trauma-informed and someone I would recommend.
