At some point we all struggle to adjustment to life's changes; it's normal to feel stuck and I believe people have what it takes to adjust. Couples often come to me for help in distress and are confused about how or why their relationship has derailed. I am dedicated to helping people build stronger; more intimate relationships and I use several modalities when attempting to help couples in distress. A high percentage of my caseload at any given time is comprised of couples.

I offer affordable counseling and consultation for individuals, adolescents, and couples. I am bilingual in Tagalog. My main areas of focus are grief counseling, dating and relationships, adolescents, and late adulthood. In working with clients, I lean towards a humanistic school of thought where a positive therapist-client relationship is emphasized. I also use a supportive, compassionate, accepting, dialogical, increased kindness, challenging, and empathic style of therapy. And, depending on the needs of my clients, I interject appropriate techniques from other counseling theories such as the psychoanalytic and cognitive behavior therapies.

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.

You feel a chronic sense of loneliness and disconnection. You observe people who appear happier and spiritually 'lighter' than you and wonder if you will ever feel that way. You want to feel that way, but something is just weighing you down. You might recognize unresolved emotional pain inside you but can't identify its source. After all, you believe that you had a "pretty good childhood" and feel guilty having any complaints because "others had it so much worse than me." Or maybe the source of your disconnection and loneliness is more than apparent, but you struggle to move towards healing.
