Linda is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a board certified alcohol and drug counselor through the California Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors (CAADAC), and has also been certified by CAADAC as a Clinical Supervisor. She has extensive experience working with chemically dependent and dually diagnosed populations in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
