"Linda, I had to write and let you know that I think of you at least once a week, if not more. You may not be aware of how much you helped me with my anxiety issues, and I must let you know how grateful I am for your awareness of my problems. And more importantly how you helped ME become aware of my problems. Long story short, you brought out the confidence in me that I used to have as a child. The child that didn’t look at life as a list of “shoulds” but was able to see situations and make them work for her, instead of the other way around. I thank you for that. I just wanted you to know that when things get tough, I think of you and remember what you would have wanted me to do - 'the right thing' - and it all works out just fine. Thank you so much and if I ever get into a jam that I can’t work out on my own, I’ll be sure to call you."

"Linda, your influence in my life has been absolutely priceless. I can hardly relate to the frail, jagged woman I was when i first came to see you. Thanks for giving me the tools to develop strength, discernment, confidence, courage, honesty, gratitude, and the list goes on and on. You are a talented therapist and a powerful role model. When I first started meeting with you, I was hoping to survive. But the wonderful surprise is that I also learned to thrive. Thank you again and again and again..."

"Linda has been incredibly helpful to me. She has helped me to overcome depression and to control my anxiety. She has been one of the most positive influences in my life. Having my son gave me the motivation to face my problems and make changes in my life. Linda gave me the support and the tools that I needed in order to make those changes. I cannot imagine what my life would be like, if I had not had her support."
Mary, Campbell, CA
"Dear Linda, I just want to make sure you know how much the work you did with me changed my life. I'm 46 now, and have so much wisdom and insight to offer people, having been through SO much myself. I always credit my therapist for pulling me out the other side side, and suggest therapy to many. I know I've said it before, but I really want you to own that you SAVED a life."
MA, Oakland, CA
"Linda, I want to say thank you for your support through the years. You helped me through an 18 month period which was the worst in my life. My wife and I agree that you are the best therapist we ever had, and we've had some pretty good ones."
Bruce, Oakland, CA
"I truly feel so lucky for being able to get help from Linda. She's kind and intelligent, and doesn't let me get away with anything. I wish the whole world could have the kind of help I've gotten from her, and am still getting."
