Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Is there an ache in your heart? A longing in your soul? Does your body tell you something’s off? Your mind driving you crazy? Hurting too much? Maybe something’s RIGHT about this! It may lead to uncovering what you long for, or bring you towards it! Let’s unwrap the gift together! As your ally in healing and growth, my job is to apply my sound professional training while maintaining an attitude of acceptance and respect towards your experience and uniqueness.

I work “holistically”: Your physical/mental/emotional/spiritual/sexual/relational dimensions… ALL of you is welcome! I provide sound support and facilitate healing from this perspective. I integrate Hakomi Body-Oriented Psychotherapy, mindful, non-violent experiential method (www.HakomiInstitute.com)

Born in Spain, and California resident for 15 years, I am bilingual-bicultural. In working with diverse clients, I also draw from my cross-cultural work and travel in Europe, Asia and America.

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.
