Specialty Training to Help with Emotional Issues
Linda Miller-deBerard helps clients overcome emotional issues using cognitive therapy; often with their partner participating in the process. She helps clients learn to communicate, connect and heal from past wounds within the context of their relationship.
Linda trained at St. Paul Medical Center in cognitive therapy and at Dallas County MHMR working with serious mental health issues. Linda has more than 28 years of experience as a state-licensed counselor with a Master’s degree.
She is independently licensed in Texas and provides various services including assessments and a variety of psychotherapeutic interventions (counseling sessions) including: crisis counseling, short and long term treatment, individual, couples and family work.
Linda is a Certified Imago Therapist; trained specifically to work with couples. Imago is a Relationship & Solution oriented couples therapy, teaching couples safe communication leading them to tailor made solutions to core issues. In addition Linda integrates “cognitive therapy”, which is based on the belief that we get our emotions from our perceptions or the way we look at things. When we recognize those perceptions we have choices to challenge and change them – giving us choices in our emotions. These models bring individuals healing from past wounds and lead to individual emotional wellness.
Imago has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show. Oprah’s shows with the creator of the model, Harville Hendrix have won numerous awards.
Linda has also received specialty training in the Gottman model of couples therapy. The Gottman Model is based on over 20 years of clinical research studying the behaviors of couples who succeed and failed in relationships. This model has broken down the specific behaviors of each group so you can be taught precisely how to make your relationship succeed.
In addition to marriage counseling, Linda specializes in mood disorders, family of origin, and women’s issues ( balancing work and home, postpartum depression mother daughter conflict and infertility).
Linda grew up in El Paso giving her insight to multiple cultures. Her parents divorced when she was seventeen. She has been married for 30 years. She has two daughters, who are now 27 and 23. These life experiences add to her passion for counseling.
