Why Come to Psychotherapy

People come to psychotherapy because something in their life is not working. There may be a belief that’s blocking progress, or a sense that something yet to be identified is missing. There may be pain and sadness, or anxiety influencing everyday experiences. You may have relationship patterns you want to address, but don’t know where to start. Whatever is nudging for your attention, psychotherapy can offer a place to consider and understand your concern.


Psychotherapy is a process that offers an opportunity to uncover thoughts and beliefs that are influencing your life, to think about what it might be like to leave those thoughts and beliefs behind, and to consider what would take their place. My approach is collaborative; I listen, guide and support you towards discovering your own unique way of being in the world.

I work with people across the life span, many of whom have lost their voice and, as a result, may have a sense of feeling ungrounded or floating that gets in the way of bringing their voice forward. I support patients in mindfully noticing their own process while keeping judgment and critical influences from taking over, as we move towards bringing your unique voice forward.

About Linda

Licensed Psychologist, PSY33882

I returned to school later in life after a career in the corporate world. I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Dominican University of California in San Rafael, and then attended The Wright Institute in Berkeley, where I completed my doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I interned for two-years at the C.G. Jung Institute of San Francisco and completed my post-doctoral hours under supervision of a Jungian analyst.

My training and life experience have led me to believe that everyone has an inherent inner drive that inspires and motivates them. Perhaps your inner drive has been pushed into the background. You may have learned to keep your perspective to yourself, or you accept that you are not as smart or valuable as others. Your relationships may not be as satisfying as you’d like them to. These experiences may indicate that you have lost contact with your unique drive. Our work together would focus on rediscovering your uniqueness, inspiration or motivation.

I look forward to working with you in bringing your voice forward.
