About Mary Linker, LCSW
Ms. Linker loves helping people and being a part of their transformation. For over twenty years she has helped patients improve their lives, drawing on a variety of training from different modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Intervention for Trauma (CBIT), Trauma-Informed Care, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Early Childhood Mental Health and Structured Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress (SPARCS). Mary finds trauma recovery work with patients especially rewarding, because so often she sees people overcome the obstacles that are holding them back, clearing the way forward towards a brighter future. Likewise, she deeply appreciates how, in other forms of work with patients, people learn to create a stable and fulfilling life for themselves.
