Hello, I am Dr. Linda F. Pendleton, MSW, LCSW. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Mississippi. I earned my Master degree in Social Work at the University of Southern Mississippi and my Doctorate degree (PhD) in the Philosophy of Social Work. I began my training in 1990, under a well-known therapist and in 2011, I started my private practice. I have over 30 years of experience in the state of Mississippi.
I provide psychotherapy to children, adolescents, young adults, couples, veterans and the geriatric community. I have extensive training in a range of modalities including, cognitive behavioral therapy, strength-based coaching, and family-therapy. I am an educator to graduate and doctorate students who are pursuing their goal of becoming therapists themselves.
I am passionate about cooking and baking for my family and friends. I am an avid football fan and enjoy all music genres. I am zealous about exercising in doors and outside.
I look forward to guiding you in a discovery of seeking your best life, one step at a time.

Dr Pendleton reaches out a friendly message often which makes me feel valued. During sessions she listens and acknowledges both sides so there’s a balance and so both people feel heard and can work to rebuild what may be going on.
I really love her as a therapist, she listens and helps articulate what I’m trying to say. The experience with her has been really enlightening.
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.
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.
