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.

Do you want to feel more satisfied with your life and relationships? Are you stuck in an unwanted role or struggling to change unhealthy patterns? I work with adults who are dealing with self-esteem issues, difficulty holding boundaries with others, anger management, anxiety, depression, addiction, and PTSD/C-PTSD. Making life changes alone can be challenging since people tend to live on autopilot and may not fully recognize the dynamics that are playing out in their lives. Everyone can benefit from a fresh perspective. Having greater clarity empowers people to make informed, reflective decisions instead of acting out of habit.
