Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
"Helping you to find yourself, the way you want to be."  My goal as your psychotherapist is to help you feel more at home in your own life. Sometimes you may feel depressed or anxious when you imagine you can't relate to others in a way which is authentic.  You can see this in primary relationships of all kinds ... with the ones you love, your work mates, friends and family. The healing of wounds is fundamental to our work, and your subconscious can be a valuable ally in the process.  If you feel comfortable, we might explore this healing by way of doing dreamwork together.  A form of Gestalt sandtray work is also available.  The issues which concern you are important. It will help to explore them together.  Please visit my website or send me an e-mail.  I will be honored to be your partner on this journey toward health.

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.
