A Little Bit About Linda
In 2008, Linda started her social work career with a focus on helping children, but she realized the best way to help a child is to help their parent. Linda recognized that parents were seeking support from someone who was non-judgmental, understood child development, and was someone they could trust. She quickly discovered a passion for working with parents. Since then, Linda has focused her career on supporting new moms and dads and parents with young children.
Linda is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and utilizes therapeutic techniques in addition to the latest research in child development when working with parents. She focuses on the individual family unit, and your unique needs, to create a personalized parenting plan to help you reach your family goals.
When not empowering parents, Linda enjoys spending time at home with her husband, daughter, and cat. She lives near Eureka, MO and enjoys hikes, warm cups of coffee, and game nights with friends.
