umed with grief. The death of my cat brought up several unresolved issues in my life and I desperately needed someone to help me and to give me tools to want to wake up in the morning and face life once again. I had gone through a very traumatic experience and Linda walked me though step by step to heal showing me what was broken inside of me and how to move through my grief. I was stuck and she listened to me and was strong and gave me the tools to get unstuck and to feel joy in my life once again. I will be forever indebted to her for showing me the light in life once again. Anyone who can get an appointment with her will be very lucky. She is involved from day one and she cares and is accessible via text and email and from the first session will give you tools and help to make you feel like you can see things in a different way. Such a cool lady and such an amazing professional. I love that she is strong. Just go and see her do not hesitate. She never minimized my grief and I felt tremendously safe and supported by her. She is a ROCK STAR. Forever grateful for meeting this woman.
