Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a bilingual (Spanish & English) Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a private practice located in San Dimas, California. For over 10 years I have provided therapy to children, adolescents, young adults, families, adults, as well as couples with severe mental health, and behavioral difficulties. I also have 19 years of experience working with children, and adolescents, both in the special education/educational system, juvenile justice system, and foster care system. Through this experience, my formal education, and training I have developed an ability to quickly build a healthy therapeutic relationship with children, adolescents, and young adults. I believe it is this relationship that is essential for a therapist to help youth overcome their various mental health, and behavioral difficulties. With this help they can then have that chance to realize their true potential. Please contact me with any questions about my services, or to schedule a free face to face 30-35 minute consultation.

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.
