Linda Young


About Me

Hello! My name is Linda and I am a licensed clinical social worker out of Illinois. Thank you for reading my profile and for taking the first step to improving your emotional well being and your life! I have 24 years of experience with individuals and families in a variety of settings. I can honestly say I have as much energy and passion for my work now as I did in year one ! In fact, I may have more because I have learned first hand how therapeutic interventions can truly change lives. I have worked with individuals facing mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, OCD, psychosis, and personality disorders. I have also helped clients facing situational issues such as domestic violence, relationship issues, infidelity, hoarding, and a loved one experiencing substance abuse.

My clinical approach is based in creating a safe atmosphere free of judgement and labeling. The pillars on which I operate are compassion, empathy, honesty and humor . I work with clients to operate on the side of things that they can control and to devise coping strategies for the things they cannot .

You have taken the first step in living a happier, more satisfying life. I look forward to working together on that goal!

Linda is a very caring person. She listens well and is able to provide comfort, feedback and a plan to move forward in life. I appreciate Linda’s ability to use the online platform and her accommodating schedule. My long work hours make it impossible for me to attend live counseling, so it is nice to be able to have a chat session in the morning or later at night. This is a great platform for people with atypical schedules.
