The Quote

They are survivors. If you don’t have respect for their strength, you can’t be of any help. It’s a privilege that they let you in, there’s no reason they should trust you, none. You can’t know their terror, it’s your worst nightmare come true. A nightmare from which you can never awaken. It’s unrelenting, there has been no safety–no one, no time, nothing. All was tainted. Hope was obliterated time and time again. That they are in our office is a supreme act of valor.

What Led to the Specialization of Trauma?

Linda moved into the specialization of trauma via her work and education at the Gestalt Institute of Philadelphia with phenomenal teachers, Mary Lou Schack, David Henrich, and Philip Lichtenberg (see below).

A Crucial Early Mistake

“Too much too soon.” Linda shares her experience of using EMDR to process trauma with clients who were simply not yet ready to process trauma, and what she learned from that error.

Linda’s Why

“Because it’s the most fascinating field in the world!”
