I use collaborative methods to help people explore what's beneath the PTSD, depression, anxiety, or family conflict.
Where has all the fun gone? Does that seem like an irrelevant question when we feel we are drowning in troubles? Or could it be the essential one? When we lose ourselves to depression, trauma, or relationship upheaval we lose that crucial access to our authentic desires, needs and power. Our ability to rediscover these buried treasures can be the key to healing, satisfaction, empowerment, self-trust and most of all--abundant choice.

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'll find that I'm not your typical patches-on-the-sleeves, "tell me about your mother" style therapist. After a career as a first responder, I have come in contact with a great many mental health challenges. My clients will find I am very empathetic while at the same time no-nonsense and to the point. Together, we'll explore what your challenges have been historically and find new ways to approach the life (and ultimately, happiness) for which you're looking.
