The Unconditional Me/Couple/Family
At different points in our lives we are more willing and able to make changes that can improve our life. Those changes can directly and indirectly have a positive impact on our lives and the lives of the people around us.
When you are ready to discuss the changes you would like to make, I will be here.
If you are curious about why you do the things you do, say the things you say, react the way you do, and want to explore some alternatives, I will be here.
My practice focuses on helping people recover from any type or severity of trauma so that they can be free to live their life. I also treat anxiety, depression, life cycle changes, relationship issues, parenting concerns and low self worth.
My practice provides a safe, comfortable, calming space for you, and is dedicated to supporting and enhancing the health and well-being of individuals, couples and families.
I use the systemic approach to therapy. This approach enables me to understand “you” in the context of your relationships, both past and present. My goal is to facilitate a therapeutic process for you to identify and develop individual strengths to empower you to effectively deal with life issues. You may expect to receive support, expertise and results, but also to work hard for lasting change.
I enjoy helping my clients on their journey for a quality life experience. Many find my compassionate, non-judgmental and inquisitive approach helps ease the challenge of confronting their personal issues.
Regular Sessions are 55 minutes. There are Extended Half, Full and Multiple day options which are helpful when working with couples and families. Please contact Linda at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information and to schedule an appointment.
About Marriage & Family Therapy
Marriage & Family Therapy is based on the research and theory that mental illness and family problems are best treated within a family context. Trained in psychotherapy and family systems, Marriage & Family Therapists focus on understanding their clients’ symptoms and interaction patterns within their existing environment. Marriage & Family Therapists treat individuals, couples, and families. Whomever the client, Family Therapists treat from a relationship perspective that incorporates the family/work/school/community system.
Marriage & Family Therapists treat a wide range of serious clinical problems including: depression, marital problems, anxiety, individual psychological problems, and child-parent problems.
Research indicates that Marriage & Family Therapy is as effective, and in some cases more effective than standard and/or individual treatments for many mental health problems such as: adult schizophrenia, affective (mood) disorders, adult alcoholism and drug abuse, children’s conduct disorders, adolescent drug abuse, anorexia in young adult women, childhood autism, chronic physical illness in adults and children, and marital distress and conflict.
