Linda Dorsey is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Culver City, CA. Linda’s practice generally treats individuals who feel stuck in their lives - whether that’s stuck in making a decision, stuck on a career path that doesn’t bring them joy, stuck in a sadness they can’t shake, or stuck in their romantic relationship. She works with clients - individuals and couples - in a non-judgemental environment to determine how past experiences inform present moods and how to move forward.
Before beginning to process through trauma, Linda teaches her clients coping skills and techniques to regulate emotions. To support those with anxiety, depression, or burnout, Linda brings a trauma-informed approach to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a therapy style that draws an explicit connection between thoughts, feelings, and behavior. For example, she might ask a client to detail out the negative self talk that leads to feeling sad.
Linda earned her Masters degree in Marriage and Family Therapist from Cal State University - Dominguez Hills. She enjoys working with individuals and couples as they steer their lives back on-track towards happiness. Linda believes in empowering clients to take control of their narratives, bringing a greater sense of emotional well-being to all.
