Announcement icon I am a Certified Cyber Counsellor. I am trained to offer psychotherapy by phone or Zoom, as well as in person, and am open to new clients.
Linda is a Registered Social Worker in private practice who wants to help you talk about living life more fully. She focuses on self-acceptance and compassion, and encouraging you to find your own priorities for your life. She will help you let go of limited thoughts about your self that hold you back, broaden the range of feelings that you are comfortable feeling in the body, and encourage you to match your actions to your values. She is an excellent problem solver and can help you listen to your heart and figure out what the next step is for you. Clients tell her that she is open, direct, positive, empathic, and fearless.
I specialize in working with people over the age of 50. I understand that wisdom comes with maturity, and have 25+ years of counselling experience. I have a systems approach to problems, and include larger relationships and perspectives, even when doing individual therapy. Unlike many therapists, I focus more on thinking and cognition, and less on feelings.
I prefer to do short-term counselling in chunks of work (often 3-8 sessions at a time), but developing relationships with clients to return as needed over years. EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (no Complex PTSD diagnoses), usually involves a longer commitment, but really makes lasting changes and can be used to address many issues.
