Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Linda has been a licensed marriage and child therapist since 1993. She has been in the Bay Area since 1978 and was born and raised in Seattle, Washington and worked as a pediatric and newborn intensive care nurse in a variety of hospital settings for fifteen years. She has also studied at Fuller Theological Seminary, Regent's College and Princeton Seminary. She has received specialty training in EMDR, play therapy, attachment disorders, sand tray therapy, working with survivors of sexual abuse and domestic violence,and narrative therapy. Linda has led women's, adolescents, staff and children's groups. She has conducted workshops for church retreats, parenting groups, counseling interns and trainees, and multi-cultural community centers on a variety of topics, some of which are: self-esteem, parenting of adolescents, parenting of special needs children, attachment disorders, adolescent psychopathology and integrating faith with psychology. Though she works with a variety of cases, she is especially fond of working with families who have a child with attachment issues. In addition to her clinical work, Linda has been involved in a teaching, training and therapy ministry to second and third world countries. There she focuses most of her time training caregivers for child trauma survivors. Her Christian faith informs all that she is and all that she does. She and her husband have been married over 30 years and have two grown sons.
