I love her!
Dr. Pendleton is a great counselor. She is easy to speak to, and makes sure her patients are heard. At the moment it’s the platform that I am not happy with.
Dr. Pendleton is a very professional and kind person. I appreciate each session with her & feel great afterwards. She has a very authentic and helpful manner and I would recommend her to anyone in search of a good therapist.
She is very professional and friendly. I have confidence that her expertise is helping me challenge a lot of my past in order to change the perspective and move forward in a healthy way. She makes you feel comfortable to share and pushes you when needed. She is also great at following up with you and checking in often.
Dr. Pendleton has the best conversation approach I’ve ever seen. There’s clearly a goal or a direction she’s moving in but manages to get there while keeping the mood light and keeping you laughing. She’s found the perfect balance of professionalism and humour! She’s a very likeable person, making it really easy to open up to. Her insights and advice once you’ve opened up have been extremely helpful so far. 10/10 would recommend!
Dr. Linda Pendleton brings pain to the forefront and addresses it. Wasting time is not allowed. Come to the session clothed in your full truth or risk being exposed. And that's why she is the most coveted hidden gem on teen counseling. So, book her if you can, but her calendar fills until it overflows - so move quickly.
Dr. Pendleton is a veteran and can get to the key issues quickly. I have only had one session so far but it has been very helpful and I look forward to continuing the engagement.
Really lovely talk therapy style that helps me take accountability for my actions surrounding mental health but also just so fun chatting to Dr Pendleton! If I start a session really depressive and self-pitying and telling myself the world is gonna end, by the time we finish the sessions I’m nearly crying laughing and brought back to a happy and bright reality. So grateful for Dr Pendleton I couldn’t recommend anyone better
Dr. Pendleton is an excellent counselor. After 19 years of marriage, we were hesitant to seek counseling but Dr. Pendleton has changed our perception of counseling and has helped our marriage tremendously. We were very grateful that we were able to receive her guidance to strengthen our marriage and work through our concerns. She was very easy to talk to, direct and outgoing. We would highly recommend Dr. Pendleton to anyone especially couples.
I’ve been working with Dr. P for about a month or so now. Every session with her I leave feeling good about myself. She helps me work through things I otherwise wouldn’t have the courage to deal with myself. She validates my feelings and experiences while also reminding me that I have so much potential and that I’m going places. I feel like recently I’ve forgotten that. I really appreciate Doc and everything she’s been for me and I look forward to continuing working together.
Dr. Pendleton is an experienced counsellor. She counsels with practical wisdom . She is attentive, an excellent listener with a pleasant countenance that makes you confident to confide in her. I always look forward to my sessions with her.
Dr. Pendleton has been a good listener over the course of our sessions so far. She does a great job of hearing what I’m saying and distilling it in a way that clarifies some of my own thoughts and concerns in a way that I haven’t been able to on my own. I found her to be easy to trust right away which makes it easier to open up as well as be open to what her valuable feedback. I’m lucky to have found her.
