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 Experience

18 years of school counseling experience, grades K-12
5 years as an LPC Intern ~ clinical hours acquired in 3 high schools serving highly at risk teens and 2 crisis pregnancy centers
Bachelors degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology
Masters degree in Counseling and Guidance
TEA certification in Elementary Education and Language/Learning Disabilities
My years as a speech therapist, elementary teacher, school counselor, and LPC Intern helped fine tune my skills in understanding various issues in children’s and adults’ lives. I learned that unhealthy coping skills and past hurts and losses interfere with joy and happiness and the goal of becoming a fulfilled human being. I became a specialist in guiding children and their parents to discover their strengths and weaknesses, fulfill their mission, set boundaries and communicate more effectively, and make better choices for balanced living.

I absolutely love Linda. She is helping me tremendously, and I think that God put us together for a reason! She listens intently, and gives me honest, helpful answers. Couldn't have asked for better!

Written by K.E. on Feb 09, 2021 after counseling 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
