Linda Libby is a licensed Clinical Social worker who sees clients in NYC and NJ through video conferencing. She works with adult individuals, couples, teens and their families who are dealing with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression and bipolar disorder, personality disorders, addictions, co-dependency and relationship difficulties.
Linda's approach is based on the belief propounded by Milton Erickson, MD that we have the resources to heal ourselves within, and that the therapist serves as a catalyst to help the client access their inner healing power. She uses an eclectic approach including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing and the stages of change approach to habit cessation and relapse prevention. Her training in hypnotherapy provides the backdrop to her approach to mindfulness. Clients are taught self-hypnosis to assist in combating reactivity and impulsiveness.
Linda believes that therapy provides a safe practice space to learn and practice new skills, which are then used in the clients’ world when real life situations arise. She looks forward to connecting with you.
