I help people who take care of everyone but themselves develop a healing and restorative practice of self care, self compassion, and self love. Usually it's guilt and/or fear that stops us from putting our own needs on par with others.' We don't want to be selfish or needy or difficult. But we end up exhausted, depleted, and resentful. Deep down, we really want to be cared for the way we care for others.

You may have a voice respond to those questions telling you otherwise and I am here to tell you that that voice does not have the final word. Who is that voice anyway? When did it start? I am interested in that inner critic, the inner child, the inner whatever you know it to be, that tells you that you are not smart enough, not attractive enough, not capable of succeeding in whatever you hope for yourself. This voice prevents you from moving forward, from realizing your dreams, or from being the partner/friend/parent that you KNOW you could be.

Do friendships/relationships in your life seem strained even though you put their feelings first? Are conversations sometimes difficult because you're afraid that speaking up for yourself will make them mad or upset at you? You want people to like you and rely on you but far too often you feel taken advantage of, sad, resentful or angry. Lately you've been feeling more depressed, anxious, stuck and confused because you've tried speaking up, tried using boundaries, but it was awkward and not well received and nothing really changed. You want the respect, love, and mutual give and take in relationships that other's have, but how?

Hello! My name is Emily Linaman and I want to help you work with your strengths, and identify behaviors and patterns that may hold you back from growing into the best version of yourself. Old habits die hard, especially when they are related to past trauma survival skills and other coping mechanisms that no longer serve you. As I earn your trust, I hope we can explore how certain behaviors and habits lead to numbing out, depression, dissociation, isolation, self-sabotage and self-harm. Together, we can explore defense mechanisms, the functions they serve, and try out new coping skills to release you from the past and set you free.
