About Me

I have a Master's in Social Work, which I achieved in 2011. I have worked most of my career in child welfare, since 2000. I am licensed as a clinical social worker in Michigan. I am well versed in substance abuse, parenting problems, and crisis intervention. Within that realm I have worked with people who have physical trauma and emotional abuse. These are concerns that are most often involved in child welfare cases.

I am very attentive and interactive with clients. I am non-judgmental and respectful of all different cultures. I have worked mostly with solution-focused counseling. I will ensure that your treatment plan is driven by your needs. You are in the driver's seat to achieve a successful and happier life. I will advocate, support and empower you to meet your needs.

I am looking forward to meeting you!

Linda is really helping me understand the hard truths about my situation but is being so helpful in guiding me to find resources and being there to hear me explain anything without judgment and reminds me of that. Greatly appreciate her help so much.

Love Linda. She balances your needs with some honesty. And she works on the things most important to you.

Written by M.E. on Feb 01, 2022 after therapy with Linda for 3 months

I appreciate how Linda takes time to listen to my concerns and offers guidance on how to deal with the stress. She also makes me reflect on possible underlying issues for the dynamics in relationships (previous trauma, what the other individual experienced previously).
I sincerely appreciate her insight in working through the transition process with my transgender child. She understands that this is a transition for all of us.

Linda is awesome
Very sharp & keeping me focused. I am very fortunate to. have met Linda Oberle

Written by D.A. on May 14, 2021 after therapy with Linda for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and anger management

Linda is a true professional. In one of our first conversations, she said, "I don't expect you to open up to me right away because we have to build some trust first." I have never had a counselor tell me that, but what a difference it made! I feel very comfortable working with her and learning from her. I am so grateful we were matched.

Written by M.E. on Apr 26, 2021 after therapy with Linda for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

She's great. Definitely takes the time to listen to me and makes me feel comfortable to talk about what's going on with me emotionally.

Written by A.M. on Mar 03, 2021 after therapy with Linda for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and coping with life changes

Linda is very respectful, concerned, and engaged in our conversations. I feel comfortable talking to her and am given tools to help me figure out some of my feelings.

Written by C.A. on Jan 24, 2021 after therapy with Linda for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Her style is honest, genuine, compassionate, encouraging, and sweet. It's very easy to fall into natural conversations with her that lead to important realizations. And I always feel that she has my best interest at heart with all of her advice and encouragement. She also helps to keep me grounded and is great at talking me through my anxious circular logic/talking me down from panic. I am extremely happy to be her client!

Linda has helped provide me with worksheets and tools that help with learning how to take a step back, breathe through anxiety, and to ultimately learn how to focus & stop procrastinating. It sounds like simple issues to fix, but it has been challenging & Linda helped me realize it takes time to learn and move past your own inner roadblocks.

Linda listens to me. I'm still at the beginning of this all. I feel like she allows to make my own decisions and figure out my solutions while guiding, not telling, me my path.
