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

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.

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!
