Evolutionary Recovery And Psychotherapy
Linda brings extensive clinical, developmental and entrepreneurial experience to her work. As a developer of programs for conscious change & development, Linda offers a unique synthesis of somatic therapies (body), applied psychology (mind) and spiritual direction (spirit). Specializing in integral psychology & evolutionary spirituality Linda also integrates principles of energy medicine, polarity therapy, cellular memory healing and impulse work.
Linda's early background as a health therapist specializing in weight management & addiction led to serving as developer of the Johns Hopkins Obesity Center and program coordinator of the Life Care Center- both hospital based programs. Training as a somatic therapist led to the development of Psycho-Somatic Integration, an innovation therapy which allowed entry into New Zealand where she worked as a psychologist in private practice for 10 years. She has provided services as an employee assistance provider as well as offering clinical services in psychiatric outpatient clinics in both the United States and New Zealand. Linda's current focus is professional supervision & mentoring and program development for conscious change.
"There is an almost sensual longing for communion with others who have a larger vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendships between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality almost impossible to describe." --Teilhard de Chardin
