I'm Linda Ritchie, a psychologist, marriage and family therapist, hypnotherapist and coach.  I help professional adults upgrade the software of their minds and change behaviors in order to live healthy fulfilled lives.  I work with both your conscious and unconscious mind because this is the fastest way to find solutions so that you experience real change and get the results you want.
  •    Anxiety
  •    Depression
  •    Weight Loss
  •    Fears and Phobia   
  •    Insomnia   
  •    Eating Disorders
  •    Stress and Worry 
  •    Marriage and Relationship issues 
  •    Family Relationship issues
  •    Communication issues
  •    Overcoming Trauma
  •    Smoking Cessation (Stop Smoking Guaranteed!)

For individuals I use the following techniques:
  •    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  •    Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  •    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  •    Hypnosis
  •    Neuro-Linguistic  Programing 
  •    Emotional Freedom Technique (Meridian Tapping)

For relationship issues I use the latest research-based methods of communication, conflict resolution, attachment theory and trust building.  I draw from multiple evidence-based relationship methods of therapy to include:
  •    Gottman,
  •    Imago
  •    Emotional Focused Therapy
  •    The Developmental Model 

 I have worked with thousands of clients and have learned what works and what doesn't.  I know what's fluff and what creates meaningful change.  I use solid effective techniques.  A warm caring connection and good rapport are crucial but I will also provide proven structured approach.  
My goal is to help you make the changes and achieve the results you want as quickly as possible.  I do not want to keep you coming back to therapy for as long as possible.  The faster you achieve the results you desire and get on with living your best life, the better for both of us.   I then move on to helping someone else achieve their goals.
