Linda grew up in San Francisco during the 1950s and came of age during the countercultural 1960s. From her more traditional childhood, she preserves a faith in the importance of service, mystery, and reverence for all forms of life. From her early flower-child leanings, she maintained a belief in looking “outside the box” for approaches to healing.
She hold a deep-seated certainty that love can set us free, once we discover how to remove the obstacles that stand in its way. This process may not be as quick or simple as the songs and clichés suggest, but she believe that love—for ourselves and for others—dwells within each of us. Our primary task is to contact it, nurture it, and bring it more fully into our lives.
She hold a master’s degree in counseling and have practiced psychotherapy since 1981. She completed coach training through the Institute for Life Coach Training in 2017, a curriculum that is certified by the National Board for Certified Counselors. She is an IMAGO therapist and, along with the many certificates she has, she also completed Level 2 Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and has integrated Gottman Method Couples Therapy with other Love Skills in her teaching and private work.
