Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
At some point in our lives, relationships, change, loss and grief can challenge us. Brief, solution-focused therapy and/or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy may help you move forward from difficult situations. Whether it is relationship problems, struggles with self-defeating behavior, sadness or anxiety, many of my clients report therapy has helped them greatly.

I create a supportive, non-judgmental, knowledgeable and enthusiastic environment. My approach is tailored to your situation, goals and personality style. Many of my clients have gained:
  • Improved coping strategies
  • Practical, useful tools for life
  • Knowledge of self and others

In our first meeting (45 minutes) we’ll discuss your circumstances, scheduling, fees, my approach to working with you, insurance and any other questions you may have. If we decide to work together, the intake fee is $70. If you decide to continue shopping for another therapist, the session is free. The right fit for you is the most important consideration.

Linda M. Crossley, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Irvine, CA

I know it can be scary to reach out for help, especially in a culture that tells us we should be able to solve our problems on our own and, if we can’t, there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m here to challenge that culture that values independence more than interdependence, because as humans we are designed to be connected with others in relationships. And sometimes the first relationship that needs our focused attention is the one we have with ourselves in order to ‘show up’ in our relationships with others.
