Linda Lufkin

(CAGS, LMHC)

About Me

I am an independently licensed mental health counselor in Massachusetts, with 14 years of experience providing mental health services, the past four years as a psychotherapist working with individuals of all ages.
I am a nationally certified Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (TF-CBT) with training in DBT, EMDR and other evidenced based modalities. I have helped people struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, mood disturbances, family and other relationship conflicts, confusion around careers and life choices and any other challenges a person feels is creating barriers to their life satisfaction.
I strive to meet people where they are at in a non-judgmental, supportive manner, encouraging people to set their own goals. I work hard to help others identify their strengths that they can build from and recognize the resources and supports around them. I encourage as well as challenge. I work to help others see things in different ways so they can identify and explore all their options. I support, but I do not tell, knowing that the only one who truly knows what is right for someone is them self.
If you are ready to explore change in your life, I am here to help. I look forward to meeting you.

Linda is one of the best counselors I have ever had, and I've had several. She has helped me process my emotions in a better and safer manner. She also has a great sense of humor and she listens to how I feel as much as she knows how and it is perfect for what I need now.

She was immediately helpful for me after the first session. She is very attentive and offers good feedback, and I have really enjoyed our time talking.

I have been working with Linda a little over a month and she has given me insightful ideas and has helped me so far in a lot of ways. I still have a ways to go, but I am now confident that I can eventually overcome what I am dealing with.

I have only been talking with Linda for a short time, she is knowledgeable about what I do and some of the problems that I face. She is timely, supportive and is able to give me some excellent help.

I feel really lucky to have been able to connect with Linda during a difficult time. She is candid and honest, but also compassionate and helpful. I appreciate her ability to listen when needed, and to ask the right questions. She has been a great help.

I haven’t been working with Linda for long. What I can say is that from my experience is attentive and wise. She gives off a very soulful vibe, which I love. I immediately felt comfortable sharing information with her. She helps me affirm my thoughts and feelings.. I really look forward to continuing my care with her.
