LINDA GINGERICH PSYCHOTHERAPY
Hi and welcome to my website. I am Linda Gingerich owner and primary therapist at L.G. Psychotherapy. I am so happy you stoped in to have a look. It is difficult to navigate the world when you are struggling in with your mental health. I know this struggle all too well and I am here to guide you.
I provide individual therapy to adults using a range of evidenced based therapies including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I also incorporate Mindfulness and Self-Compassion which helps us to stay in the present moment with acceptance, loving kindness and compassion for ourself.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME, LINDA GINGERICH, AND HOW I GOT HERE.
I started working in the mental health sector 20+ years ago. I have worked in various capacities in community based mental health agencies as well as the developmental sector.
Through my years providing mental health treatment, I have gained a wealth of knowledge, skills and experiences to best support individuals struggling with a mental health issues.
I understand that therapy can be a very difficult process and it is hard work. Through this hard work, which I call the process of recovery, comes changes and reaching your goals for recovery!
As a registered psychotherapist, I understand that your struggles are personal, difficult, and that you feel alone. I understand it hard to reach out, together we can talk about what you are struggling with and set treatment goals for recovery. I bring to the table my expertise in treating mental health to provide you with practical skills in a safe space that allows for self-reflection, self-exploration, and personal growth.
I have a Bachelor Degree in Social Science. In addition to my degree, I bring my years of experience and on-going enrichment and trainings. I have also specialized in treating Perinatal Mental Health and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and my German Shepherd dog Eleanor. I also enjoy spending time in nature hiking, swimming and enjoying the tranquility of the bush.
