I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the sunny State of Florida with over 20+ years of experience. I come from a large family. My mother had 12 siblings and 10 of the siblings had 5-8 children. I have siblings, cousins and other relatives who have been married, divorced, separated and other relationships, which required couple counseling. I have been able to work with them and others to help each party learn about themselves and their significant other. I am a strong believer that once we know better, we do better. As we invest time in our love relationships, learn each others' thought, feelings and ideas, we learn to do better.
I am excited that you are taking this step to grow and enrich your life. I look forward to being able to support and empower you on this journey to being Better! :)

Great experience so far. Only point for improvement would be to let the patient to more and allow the a little silence. Overall great work and will continue with my counseling with her.
Linda is the best and cares about her clients to want what’s best for them
Linda cares. She takes time to share her own experience as a way of teaching and guiding. At the same time, Linda regularly allows questions and is open to allowing the conversation to be focused on whatever is important to us as a couple.
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.
