About Me

I have many years experience working with couples and families, helping to improve communication, be better listeners and improve their ability to express genuine caring for each other. I am able to remain neutral, support different viewpoints, set limits and model healthy boundaries. I work to assure that all parties feel heard and support the process of compromise, acceptance and agreeing to disagree. Inversely, I can help others to explore what is truly necessary to find contentment in life and support people through making life's tougher choices.
If you are ready to try to move your relationship forward, I am here to help. I look forward to meeting you.

Written by B.E. on Mar 13, 2020 after counseling with Linda for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning relationship

I was not excited about beginning couples' therapy, thanks to my own preconceived notions regarding what it meant. However, my reservations went away when my spouse and I began working with Linda. Linda has an easygoing, unpretentious, and humorous style that immediately made us both feel more comfortable with the process. She is hands-off enough to give my spouse and I space to talk to one another, and hands-on enough to deliver just the right advice at the right time. She gave us specific tasks to work on without ever making us feel pressured. Even when sessions were rough, as couples' therapy can sometimes be, we always finished up knowing that we were better off than we had been before the session. That effect has compounded over several months, with the result that we are in a much healthier place than we were before we began working with Linda. We are so grateful to her for her help, and we recommend her to anyone interested in making their marriage stronger.

Linda is compassionate, thoughtful, wise, and articulate. Her ability to listen, respond and ask pertinent questions is unmatched. She brings insight into every session. She is very responsive, consistent and dedicated. I can't say enough good things about Linda's professionalism and character.

Linda is an energetic, thorough, and thoughtful counselor. My partner and I have had tough challenges we have been able to move through thanks to Linda's support. I do not think my relationship would have worked had it not been for her intervention.

Linda is amazing. She is insightful, thoughtful, and respectful. She definitely has helped us through some very tough times. She can be frank yet caring, serious yet funny. She has a great talent for getting to the heart of things quickly and then spending time mending and healing. Highly recommend.

My partner and I began using Regain during a very challenging time in our relationship. Throughout our experience here, Linda has been incredibly helpful in helping us navigate past and present problems. As our counselor, she is kind and patient, but also deliberate and honest--at times pushing us to consider different vantage points and helping us to understand ourselves better. Our relationship has gone through tremendous growth thanks to Linda and we are confident others will be able to benefit from her service as well.

Linda is a wonderful therapist. She quickly understood the areas in which my husband and I needed to work on and provided us with easy to implement feedback that really helped us. I highly recommend Linda!

Linda is awesome! I've worked with several therapists at different times in my life and Linda is a rockstar! Easy to speak with, open up to, is a fantastic listener and always offers sound advice. Also, willing to hold you accountable which is a must-have in my opinion.

10/10.
