I do not consider myself the average therapist because I do not sit around and say "Hmm, tell me more". Instead, I take a very assertive style and want to make changes in your life as quickly and effectively as possible. Eclectic therapy(multi-modality) is a form of psychotherapy that adapts to the unique needs of each patient, depending on the problem, the treatment goals, and the person’s expectations and motivation. An eclectic therapist draws from a variety of disciplines and may use a range of proven methods to determine the best combination of therapeutic tools to help a patient. In effect, an eclectic therapist customizes the therapeutic process for each individual by using whatever form of treatment, or combination of treatments, has been shown to be most effective for a particular problem.
Whether you are seeking individual counseling, trying to improve a relationship via couples counseling, working out family issues my first goal is to help you recognize yourself and how you can improve.
I am a Christian which means I use God and faith to help you heal, progress and find peace if that is something you desire incorporated. I will not force you to believe what I believe, but I do want you to know where I come from. I see different people with different beliefs or no spiritual belief. I am professional and respectful to all clients and their values and will never impose those on you in our counseling relationship.

Written on Jun 04, 2023 after therapy with Linda for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes
I enjoyed the 6 months I had Linda as my therapist. I am moving out of state, and unfortunately cannot stay her client which is very disappointing. I know I still have a lot of work in my healing journey, but she gave me great advise and guidance along the way to help me put my best foot forward. I have nothing but great things to say about Linda.
