Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you feeling stuck, trapped, and anxious? Perhaps you feel you don't measure up to what you believe others expect of you, or to what you expect of yourself? These feelings and others may indicate an underlying misalignment in your life. It may be time to discover what is underneath your feelings, aching to come out of hiding. Growing the ability to reconnect with your life, and with others who are important to you, may be key. If you are feeling anxious, it may be that something in you is trying to get your attention. Although anxiety and panic attacks can be scary, learning to relate to anxious feelings in a new way can be an invitation for new understanding, meaning, and creativity. Through being interested and curious, while maintaining awareness and presence in the body, we can, together, unearth what needs tending and care. I cultivate with clients a compassionate, caring environment by listening deeply, maintaining non-judgment, and observing what you are interested in and passionate about. I help you discover the obstacles that seem to block your ability to take action, and invite your process to unfold at whatever pace is necessary.

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.
