La Jolla Therapist and Family Counseling
Therapy is a gift you give yourself or your loved ones to build stronger, happier lives and healthier relationships.
It's time to stop feeling stuck
We all have times in our lives when we feel hopeless, alone, or overwhelmed-but you don’t have to go at it alone. Working with an experienced caring professional who will actively listen and understand in a safe, private environment can help you move past life’s roadblocks, empower you to feel more confident, and build stronger personal relationships in your life.
A compassionate approach, practical solutions, and a dedication to creating and supporting lasting change.
Everyone has a life story to tell. It is through the process of opening yourself, despite difficult situations, that we find many hidden strengths, as well as, possibilities for the future. Witnessing the telling of the “story” and assisting in a person’s transformation is truly inspiring, and professionally rewarding to me. The resilience in which the human spirit can endure many painful, challenging experiences and yet grow, change and thrive is amazing.
Dealing with life’s challenges can feel overwhelming...but you don’t have to handle it alone
Unfortunately, children don’t come with an instruction manual…knowing what to do as a parent can be a challenge.
All relationships, like individuals, experience different stages or transitions in life naturally creating challenges.
A Different Kind of Approach
The most important aspect of what makes psychotherapy effective is the trusting, confidential, professional relationship that is formed. My approach to therapy is warm and collaborative while knowing when to offer honest, compassionate and practical direction.
"Linda is very different than other therapists we’ve seen before. She’s easy to talk to, open, candid, and tough, when she needs to be, yet incredibly empathetic and compassionate, she provides tangible solutions and isn’t afraid to lean in and engage. We definitely saw noticeable improvements in our marriage and were able to gain a deeper understanding of each other and break unhealthy habits we weren’t aware of."
J.F. 48 year old married woman
"Linda helped to uncover old behavior and past experiences that were holding me back and keeping me stuck in the same place. Gaining awareness into how I can personally shift my old perceptions and actions to new ones, I was finally able to take control and create new results in my life. I really felt the kindness and understanding and true desire to help from Linda, but she also knew when to “call me on my stuff", which I needed."
R.C. 44 year old man
"Linda is an incredible human being and an exceptional therapist! I called many therapists when I needed help for my then 15-year-old daughter and 17-year-old son, and Linda was the only one who took the time to speak to me at length over the phone, and asks questions about my children and our relationship at home before my kids even stepped into her office."
