She has also studied at Fuller Theological Seminary, Regent's College and Princeton Seminary.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
San Rafael, CA

My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, supportive, and interactive. My work is based on establishing a safe environment where trust can grow. I view symptoms as a way to call attention to unrecognized needs and unexpressed feelings. The goals of treatment include; learning to identify and express emotions, learning to set appropriate boundaries, developing skills such as self-soothing and impluse control and improving self-esteem.
