I salute your courage as you come here looking for the help that will make a difference right now.
In my work with individuals, couples and families, I see beyond the problems. I see people wanting to change, wanting to be better human beings, wanting to form more fulfilling connections, wanting to create happier families.
I hear people wanting to remove the barriers that keep them from providing more for their loved ones on every level.
Here’s how I can help.
I will support and inspire you to make the changes your current difficulties demand. I will respond to you with compassion, gentleness, patience and insight.
Our every interaction is designed to restore you, your relationship or your family to a state of wholeness.
Think of me as your travelling companion - a guide along a perilous stretch of the road.

You have a great gift of seeing deeply into the truths and wounds of others… I have received so much insight and guidance from you in our short time together. I feel your genuine care for my well-being and it is so healing to me.
You are a wellspring of encouragement and hope to me.
You mirror my own inner wisdom and connect me to very deep places in my psyche.
ZP, North York, Ontario

Even though we only had an hour with you, I feel we gained better insight into each other… something I desperately needed to have before our marriage in a few weeks.
HS, Thornhill, ON

Linda is a very empathic, knowledgable and effective therapist. She has a very soothing and calming disposition giving off a positive vibe that I take away with me into my personal life.
JF, Toronto, ON

I want to let you know the impact our conversations have had on my life and career and to thank you for your role in the changes that I have implemented. Our conversations represented a major turning point for me and allowed me to start to emerge from the rut I had gotten myself into. In particular, I appreciate how you encouraged me to articulate my feelings / opinions. The most profound aspect of the experience for me was hearing myself give you those answers and feeling like I was ultimately B-S-ing myself.
As a result of my work with you, I have decided to stop using marijuana for casual use at home. I also felt that this was another tether that was holding me back… That decision allowed me to reevaluate my priorities.
Once again I want to let you know that I am incredibly grateful for the role that you played in opening my eyes to the truth of my circumstances.
JA, Calgary, AB

Things have gotten so much better I can hardly believe it. My son is very much back on track and off drugs. Thanks so much for your help.
KO, Richmond Hill, ON

You are a beautiful soul. Thank you for the guidance and insight you bring to my life.
LL, Owen Sound, ON

What a wonderful therapist you were for my daughter. She is doing much better now after her tragic loss.
SG, Richmond Hill, ON

I wanted to thank you once again for helping my husband and me to refocus on our marriage… We are both grateful each day for all that you did to help us and have commented often that had we not met you, we may not be together enjoying our daughter today… So, thank you, thank you, thank you… from the bottom of my heart I thank you.
DM, Aurora, ON

Count me among your fans.
DK, Mississauga, ON

I would be very fortunate indeed if my mother was like you. You have, over the years, managed to close many wounds that my mother had inflicted. You have also helped repair the severe damage she inflicted on my sense of self-worth. Every chance you had over the last 13 years we have worked together, you have given me gentle guidance. You often told me that I am a good and caring person and most of all you told me I am a person worthy of being loved and that being approving of myself is loving myself.
You have guided me and allowed me to see myself with my own eyes and not with my mother’s critical and disapproving eyes. You gave me the permission to protect myself from abuse by giving me back my sense of self-preservation.
You have a good and kind heart and you found a way to speak to my heart and soul by speaking to me in the way you know I would want my mother to speak to me. Your patient is cured.
RL, Hearst, ON

I want to express my appreciation for the time you spent with me.
I found your fusion of spirituality and therapy fascinating. The pursuit of a contentment with the present is very valuable in lieu of the constant presence of “marriage as salvation”. Furthermore, it is refreshing to see someone who has accomplished the end which I am pursuing.
DG, Toronto, ON

I’ve learned to appreciate what an interesting, complex, idealistic, spiritual / practical person Linda Warman is.
P Z, Thornhill, ON

Biographical Notes
I believe that you cannot guide a person down a road you have not travelled yet yourself.  I have been a very successful consumer of therapy. It was that success in fact that reconnected me with my passion about becoming a professional helper. I always held the belief that therapy would hold one of the critical keys to my personal growth. My joy as a therapist is to work with those who would like to learn how to take responsibility for their personal journey.
So much of my personal life predicted that I would become a therapist. I am the daughter of a holocaust survivor. Though happily partnered now, I lost my husband when I was very young and raised our two children on my own. To support my family, I took a job with the federal government and stayed with it for many years.  So I know at close range what it means to work in a large organization oftentimes with the sense of having no control over working conditions. I also know what it means to have personally satisfying work.
I have survived life-threatening illness on a road less travelled.  I made extensive use of natural medicine.  I feel qualified on account of that experience to be a wellness coach. I also feel qualified to educate clients in the importance of robust physical health as a foundation for good mental health.
I am an elder, a grandmother.  I have come to the table of becoming a professional well past middle age.  I am therefore qualified to tell you that it may not be too late to change your career, follow your bliss and prepare yourself to give the world your best gifts through your work.
I have been a serious student of personal growth all of my adult life. Studying eastern wisdom traditions including yoga, yoga philosophy, zen and mindfulness practices has afforded me the opportunity to weave a tapestry of approaches that melds together what is best in western psychology with the practical philosophies of the east.  I have a firm grounding therefore in the transpersonal psychologies and in psychospiritual approaches to human growth.
In the 70's,  I was an ardent feminist and thus my therapeutic presence is a champion for women's issues.  I am however, deeply aware of and sensitive to the profound impact the women's movement has had on men and the workings of contemporary families.  There is a lot of evolution and a lot of confusion.  And we are all of us blazing these new trails of manhood and womanhood.  This all takes tremendous courage.
I have a deep and abiding interest in intimate partnerships.  I know that in their best form they can be the bedrock of our lives. And I have therefore studied the work of Harville Hendrix and become a Certified Imago Therapist  You can trust me with your relationship. I am ready to help you restore your intimate connection with your partner.
