My highly personalized approach is tailored to your individual needs to help you attain the clarity, understanding and balance you are striving for. I offer my open-hearted and compassionate presence to you in whatever venue we may meet and with whatever avenues to healing feel comfortable for you. All faiths are welcomed and respected.
I provide contemplative psychotherapy and mindful coaching for individuals and couples in a comfortable and supportive atmosphere. My approach honors your "whole person" - physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual. I believe that with compassionatae guidance you can learn to live more fully. All people have a natural tendency toward health and vital wholeness. Unforturnately, this tendency can become blocked, for any number of reasons, causing us discomfort in our everyday lives and relationships. If you are considering therapy, you're probably aware of this discomfort and seeking support and guidance to move forward in your life.
Consultations with Linda L. Davis, MSW include:
Counseling/Psychotherapy: Counseling sessions are suited for people experiencing anxiety, worry, depression or loss or for those who need support and guidance to navigate life's many transitions. Perhaps you are experiencing what feels like a loss of heart or loss of soul. You may find yourself repeating hurtful patterns or unable to heal old wounds. Counseling is also suited for those who may be feeling discouraged on a spiritual level.
Couples may also benefit by learning skills for improving their relationship and communication by becoming more compassionate, flexible, supportive and respectful of each other.
Life Coaching provides an ongoing partnership for a person whose focus is in the present looking toward the future.
