Approach to Therapy
Linda has been a prolific dreamer since childhood and has kept dream journals for over 25 years. Through her own personal practices, she discovered the remarkable potential of dreams. Since everybody dreams, then we all have access to the wise and healing messages there; as well as the dream’s transformative possibilities as “good medicine.” Over time, Linda has developed techniques that have empowered people to make more mindful changes in their lives and communities. Because dreams can go right to the core of issues, Linda uses a gentle approach while encouraging her clients to explore at their own pace while accessing their own wisdom. Linda’s areas of emphasis include: • Dream Work for Personal & Professional Development • Bereavement, Loss & Disenfranchised Grief • Coping with Sleep Issues • Nightmares, PTSD & Stress • Anxiety & Depression • Family Systems & Ancestral Trauma • Working with Life Transitions • Building Self Esteem • Emotions and the Body • Finding Your Life’s Calling • Expressive Arts • Empathic & Highly Sensitive
