Linda Robertson, LMFT
At heart, I’m a problem solver.
In 2007, I became licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist in Southern California. I’ve helped hundreds of clients, including families, couples and individuals, work through their own unique challenges.
Prior to becoming a therapist, I was a commercial television producer. After more than two decades in that role, I decided it was time to take the experience and skill sets I developed and incorporate them into my life-long interest in psychology.
Being a producer involves constant problem solving. While there are components of every shoot that are the same, there are always differences. Each job is its own challenge that involves looking at each situation though fresh eyes to find solutions. That’s the skill I bring to therapy. No two people are alike. Two people may have the same problem, but because they are unique individuals it may require coming at it differently. These challenges are what excite and intrigue me about psychology and why I find it so fulfilling helping people.
What I treat.
Interpersonal and Relational Conflicts; Marital Conflicts; Adolescent Conflicts and Parenting; Difficult Family Transitions; Anxiety; Depression; Alcoholism and Substance Abuse, Relapse and Relapse Prevention; Bipolar Disorder; Fear; Grief and Loss; Treating the Psychosocial Effects of Chronic Illness; Professional Challenges, Crisis Intervention
