Linda is a Registered Social Worker in private practice who wants to help you talk about living life more fully. She focuses on self-acceptance and compassion, and encouraging you to find your own priorities for your life. She will help you let go of limited thoughts about your self that hold you back, broaden the range of feelings that you are comfortable feeling in the body, and encourage you to match your actions to your values. She is an excellent problem solver and can help you listen to your heart and figure out what the next step is for you.
Clients tell her that she is open, direct, positive, empathic, and fearless about talking about difficult topics, She is a systems thinker, and is skilled at looking at context. She adds value to conversations by providing information about the health care system, the sick leave system, and the dying system.
