Linda has been so amazing and a great listener but also someone that challenges me with my issues and talks to me in a way where my issues seem more manageable with the right help. Highly recommend Linda to anyone
Linda has been an amazing therapist and never judging or scolding. Looking forward to continuing to speak with her
It could have been a 40 year curse I came to you with, but I can see you light and I know to follow this. Even though it is provoking some very seriously deep rooted issues, I feel safe... that's golden.
Linda's voice is like an angel,so soothing and motherly.I feel like I am touched by an angel.
I was paired with Linda and honestly I am extremely happy that I was connected with Linda. I've been to other therapist before and didn't feel like I connected to them, but with Linda, I feel connected. She really takes her time to listen, and guide you through your problems. She also provides worksheets to work on that goes in hand with your current situation and they are helpful. I highly suggest Linda! She is a beautiful soul!
Ms. Allen is always polite and reassuring. My daughter is making progress since she began therapy with Ms. Allen. I would definitely recommend her without reservation.

Ms Allen has been attentive and supportive from day one. She’s understanding and very knowledgeable of life and that makes her so great at what she does. I’m very happy with her and thankful it’s her we got as a counselor
Linda was a pleasure to work with. She has a professional yet caring, empathetic personality that makes you comfortable and trusting during the process of relationship counseling. She is a good listener and offers good advice and guidance in a non-judgemental way. I can highly recommend her to any couple seeking to strengthen and or renew their relationship.
Linda Allen has been a great support for our family. She is caring and funny but she especially listens to my child’s needs and connected with her and gained my child’s trust. We would definitely recommend Linda because you can tell she is a person that truly cares.
I love working with Linda!! I have very little experience with therapy/counseling so I was extremely nervous initially, but Linda is so kind and personable, I now always look forward to our sessions!
