I relate in a conversational therapy style, rooted in Narrative Approaches, utilizing strategies and interventions informed by EMDR, Internal Family Systems, and Humanistic perspectives.
Taking care of yourself can be exhausting, especially when you are taking care of others. Personal and professional relationships take effort and have a new meaning in this current time of social unrest and a global pandemic. You might be an overwhelmed parent. Or perhaps you are burnt out from working-from-home. You may be in a challenging relationship. Or maybe you are simply feeling out of sorts and trying to make sense of it all. When we're stressed we often forget who we are and what is important to us. By looking for help, you've taken the first step in regaining balance in your life, and finding yourself.

My work includes narrative, existential, and depth frameworks.
Feeling lost, abandoned, misunderstood, or exiled can lead to a disconnection from the soul. When we feel like no one wants us, we begin to abandon ourselves. We all have parts we dislike, often as a result of harmful messages we internalized from our families and society. The darkest parts of ourselves are often the most frightening, and consequently, the most rejected and ignored. It's in the darkness where we find pieces of ourselves we left behind, pieces that long to be loved and accepted. I’m here to tell you that every part of you is welcome in our work together. You are not alone, and you don't have to hide anymore.

It’s hard to be human. There are no manuals on how to deal with our thoughts and emotions. Sitting with vulnerability can be scary and uncomfortable. As a Client-Centered clinician I plan to meet you in the here and now and help get you to where you want to be in a holistically happy and healthy manner. We all could use a bit of guidance, and at times, a push in the right direction.

Are you disillusioned and asking yourself how your working relationship got this bad or hard? You and your business partner had a great business idea and decided to launch a business together. It seemed so promising at first. Even more so if your partner is also your friend, sibling, or spouse. You knew there would be ups and downs. Now that you are mid-stream, the business is bringing out the stressed and critical sides of both of you more than ever. It feels overwhelming and at times, unbearable. And yet, you are under the gun to make it work.

Sometimes we find ourselves in a valley, feeling depleted and uninspired. We realize we have been stuck in the same cycles, having exhausted all of the tools that once worked and unsure why change feels impossible. Sometimes we just need someone to see the best in us, to hold hope when we're barely hanging on. Therapy shouldn't be something we dread, but rather an opportunity to feel encouraged and poured into, inspired and deeply understood.

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.

As a therapist, my goal is to create a space where people can enact the change they desire for themselves, their relationships, and the lives they live. In our world, we are bombarded with messages that tell us that we “should” be this way or that way. We hear messages that tell us what parts of our identities are welcomed and what parts are shunned and “should” be hidden from others. I view the therapy room as an exception to the ways we have become accustomed to living our lives. It is place where people are valued for simply being who they are, where they can exist authentically, with respect and compassion, and without judgment.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. 94596 Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in 94596.
