"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."

"Whatever your life looks like right now, it is probably more complicated than it was just days or weeks ago due to the current pandemic. When facing a crisis, our ability to process our emotions and needs becomes key to our capacity to juggle our new "normal" with our mental health intact. Crises also tend to bring up old wounds and traumas and push us into old or unhealthy patterns of coping and managing stress. My specialization is working with the LGBTQ+ community around issues of sexuality and gender, but regardless of your identity right now, I am here to offer you empathy, support, and connection during this challenging time."

You spend your weekends trying to unwind through happy hours and dating, but once the thrill fades, you feel drained again. You may wonder if your use of alcohol, the internet, social media, or video games gets in the way of you finding your purpose and living your best life. Your efforts to advocate for yourself at work may get you labeled as "angry". You find injustice impedes your ability to express and truly empower yourself."
