About me

Hello and welcome!

I am so glad you have chosen to find out more about my services. Unhealthy coping skills and behaviors in ourselves and in our children and families can ruin our precious relationships. Counseling is a pathway to joyful living!

This is my mission to help others find peace and joy in the midst of work, stress, pressures, chaos, family issues, children and teen problems, grief and loss….and the list goes on and on.

There is an EYE in the STORM of life and I endeavor to help people learn to LIVE in that peaceful place, no matter what is swirling around them.

My years as a speech therapist, elementary teacher, school counselor, LPC Intern and in private practice helped fine tune my skills in understanding various issues in children’s and adults’ lives.

Mrs. Mappin is always there for me no matter what issues I’m facing. She’s the person I go to with my problems on a day to day basis. She always has the most positive and professional feedback. I can tell she’s looking out for me and wants nothing than for me to succeed in my goals in becoming less overbearing on myself and more mentally strong.

We’ve only had one actual video session but we have corresponded almost daily on some level via responses to questions or my journal. This has really helped me in that I know I’m being heard.

Linda seems to be a very kind and caring counselor so far & I’m looking forward to working more with her. One of my favorite things about her is her sense of faith and sharing Gods love & joy with me. I am grateful I’ve found her to be my counselor.

Written on Feb 09, 2021 after therapy with Linda for 6 months on issues concerning grief, parenting issues, and compassion fatigue

I began working with Linda a few months ago after losing both parents in a short period of time, along with some other health concerns in the family. I was very intentional in wanting a therapist that is a Christian and approaches counseling from a position of faith. Linda’s experience coupled with her faith was a perfect fit for me and I recommend her to others
