Linda Merrion | Roswell

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Professional Counselor

Like everything else, over time relationships can take a lot of wear and tear. What was once a close, fulfilling relationship can end up being very painful. Whether the relationship is a marriage, a romance, with a friend, with a relative, or with a coworker, there is help available.

Linda is a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). She has a Master of Science and, during her 30 years of practice, has been helping individuals, couples, and families navigate challenges and recover the joy and contentment they once enjoyed.

Linda has been trained in emotionally focused therapy (EFT)––a counseling technique pioneered by Susan Johnson, Ph.D. The focus of EFT is to help clients identify their negative cycles that keep them stuck. Once they begin to see these patterns, Linda is able to help them access the core emotions that need to be expressed and cared for by their partner. This is done in a caring, nonjudgmental environment, which allows new, safe emotional connections to develop and healing to take place.

Linda specializes in affair recovery, parent/child relationships, teenagers, PREPARE/ENRICH premarital assessments, and career assessments using the Highlands Ability Battery (HAB).
