(MS, LPC, CGRS)

About Me

I have an overall desire to see individuals live a well-balanced life, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Belief in the capacity of effective listening and holding someone else’s pain. One cannot change for someone other than themselves, as an agent of change I am here to help realize change is possible. Though the use of a client-centered approaches of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Grief Recovery Methods; navigating life can be a productive journey, with hope, guidance, and help.
Periods of un-wellness do exist, and I believe that wellness is obtainable for everyone. Using both empathy for comfort and courage to confront. Developing strength in others to sustain and find quality of life has become my life purpose. Wellness is a state of mind that can be achieved with the correct tools, knowledge, and the room to find a safe place for it all to come together.
With more than 10 years of experience in combined Inpatient and Outpatient mental health settings, I can provide quality care in development of an effective therapeutic relationship.

Linda is awesome!! She’s a great listener and even greater with her advice! Very patient with me and takes her time to understand what I’m dealing with and provides worksheets and tools that I’m learning to use to help fix the problems I’m going through. Sometimes you just need someone who really wants to help you grow and be a better person and Linda is that special someone! Super thankful for having her as a counselor

I feel like it's still early stages, but Linda is great and easy to work with. She's confident and positive. I say "confident" but she's not over confident. She listens and is open to what I'm saying.

Linda Skyes is wonderful! She is amazing at what she does and helps in any way, shape or form. You can see she genuinely loves what she does. She truly knows what she is doing and does it very well. I always look forward to our meetings because I feel relief afterwards, a light at the end of the tunnel.
