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.
Scheduling Availability: I work at my private practice on Monday and Tuesdays and provide live chat and phone counseling here on this platform 6am-12pm Wednesdays and Thursdays. I do make up sessions by live chat only on the weekends by appointment via the message board. Please look at your schedule before accepting my services. The first session will be on live chat to establish if we are a good fit. Thank you!

Really enjoy speaking with Linda
She is wonderful and caring. She gives me tools to help me work thru things.
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.
Talking to Linda is like talking to a best friend. I love her God Jar idea!
Linda is such a knowledgeable, supportive, and caring person. I’m working with her to gain a sense of confidence and to let go of fear. The more we talk the stronger I am feeling. I’m getting to a point where I think I will have more faith and I’ll be able to let go of fear soon.
Very professional and is very honest.
She’s the best. I love how she brings in God in every situation. Which is who can help you the most.
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!
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
Linda’s wisdom and experience combined with incredible kindness has really given me a new perspective. I’m not there yet, but she is definitely helping me get my life back on track.
Linda is amazing. I immediately felt a connection on our first visit. She has been a godsend for sure. So thankful for her guidance and listening ears.
Linda is a wonderful counselor and has been very helpful to me. She understands my issues and offers a variety of ways to help me through them. I am truly blessed to have her in my life at this time.
She is very attentive and took her time in getting to know where my stressors are before giving out suggestions
She has been wonderful helping me through my tough year.
I have confidence in Linda's experience and trust that we will be able to have successful counseling sessions
Linda is a very level headed and intuitive counselor who does not carry any biases. She was a great fit for me for when I needed it the most.
I really like the approach Linda has, her methods and her counseling makes you feel that u can achieve the goal, with practice. She is always available to listen to my concerns.
