Hello! I’m Linda Clarkson, M.S., L.P.C. and I want to welcome you to my website. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor offering relationship and intimacy counseling, anxiety and stress management, bereavement, grief and loss counseling and internal dialogues counseling to individuals and couples in the Alpharetta, Roswell, Milton and Woodstock areas.
Does any of this sound familiar?
I don’t know who you are anymore.
What’s the big deal?
Well, you’re the one who started it!!
No, not tonight – I’m really tired.
I always avoid the issue so we don’t end up in a confrontation.
I don’t like who I become when we argue.
Seems like we’re always arguing and getting nowhere.
The spark is gone. Can we ever get it back?
If you really loved me, you’d know what I want.
Do you struggle with unresolved conflict or stress, communication or affection issues with your partner? Does it seems as though your relationship is falling apart? Have your arguments become exhausting, frustrating and sad.
Or, is your relationship in a pretty healthy place, but, recently a few issues have come up and you want to avoid having them grow into major conflicts?
Maybe, anxiety and life’s stresses seem to be catching up with you and you feel as though a heavy weight sits on your shoulders. Perhaps you’re always taking care of others and it feels selfish to take care of yourself. Perhaps a loved one has died or you’re grieving the loss of a relationship. Or, is there is an issue you’ve been living with for years and it’s affecting your ability to cope and form healthy relationships.
You’re here at my website for a reason and I’d love to help. You’ve tried talking with family and friends hoping that things will change. This is a good idea if those you trust with your problems are able to offer objective, meaningful help and have been trained to provide and deliver useful solutions. And, it may have been helpful for a while.
Or maybe you’ve decided to go it alone, just do the best you can and try and manage on your own. But it hasn’t been working. Going it alone could involve considerable amounts of stress and anxiety and lead to even bigger problems. That’s where counseling can help.
While deciding to ask for help isn’t an easy choice, it is a courageous one. Most counseling assists perfectly normal people facing issues that are negatively affecting their lives. Why cope and just settle when you can excel, heal and thrive? You’re an intelligent person with numerous skills including persistence, perseverance and a willingness to change your life for the better.
My professional training and use of evidence based tools enables me to provide you with change in your quality of life and relationships as well as empathy, support and nonjudgment in ways that your family and friends were not trained to do. I’ve had the privilege and joy of helping individuals and couples feel happier, more confident and better about themselves as people, partners and professionals.
I’m your counselor, your cheerleader, your coach. I’ll work with you to create lasting and sustainable outcomes for your life, work, and relationships.
I offer a complimentary phone consultation so I can answer your questions and discuss your situation and concerns. In addition, I integrate spiritual/faith based counseling upon request. Telecounseling in the form of phone and HIPPA compliant video is also available as needed. You may reach me at 470-461-7211 or at [email protected]
Your time is precious. Many thanks for sharing it with me. Please don’t hesitate to come back often, make use of my resources and read the relevant information in my upcoming Blog posts. The information is here to serve you.
I hope to see you soon.
With the deepest respect for your journey.
