I have 33 years of combined clinical and clinical educator experience. I work mostly with post secondary students and adults to help them cope with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and anger in addition to those with ADHD and adjustments due to life challenges and transitions. I hope to provide ease of access/cost effectiveness services by providing an option for In-Network/direct billing through https://headway.co/providers/linda-karcher
(currently taking Aetna, United Healthcare, Oxford and Oscar - Blue Cross Blue Shield and Cigna pending)

I have a unique trifecta of clinical experience/clinical educator and Certified Yoga Teacher hats to work with the whole person. I am Certified – Dialectical Behavior Therapy and also utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing and Energy Psychology. I come from a strong strength based and client centered approach.

We often take on the responsibility of the world on our shoulders. Put on your oxygen mask first. Selfish doesn't have to be a bad word. Seeking help for yourself is the first step. Don't just settle for surviving. You can learn to thrive! We will work collaboratively to determine your goals. Do you need time to process? Problem-solve? Learn emotional regulation and distress tolerance? Support and guidance? This is all about you and you deserve to be heard.
