**If my fees are not affordable, several options may be available: you can work with one of my associates, Bridget KerMorris, AMFT (858-598-4716; for EMDR or relational therapy), Shanelle Roesler, AMFT (858-255-1447; for EMDR therapy), or Sarah Beiruty, AMFT (858-789-2659; for couple therapy) for around half the cost. If you choose this option, I would be supporting her with your case.** I help people, especially (but not only) entrepreneurs, business owners, creators, and artists, have better relationships, resolve painful memories/experiences they can’t overcome with EMDR therapy (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/relationship-and-trauma-insights/202007/what-the-heck-is-emdr-therapy-can-it-really-help-me), embrace and accept who they are, and manage anxiety more wisely. EMDR can work in ways you wouldn’t imagine, and sometimes at a speed that feels impossible. I am social-justice oriented, LGBTQ+ affirmative, and sex-positive, and adjust my approach to fit your needs, preferences, and finances. I have advanced training in relationships, trauma, immigration and transgender evaluations, and mindfulness (I write about them on Psychology Today [https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/experts/jason-n-linder-psyd]). You can usually expect change in 2-8 sessions. As a psychology doctor and professor, I’m updated on the latest therapy research, and am dedicated, caring, and collaborative. You should feel understood, hopeful, and safe in your confidential therapy. I also use emotionally focused couple therapy (EFT: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/relationship-and-trauma-insights/202008/what-is-emotionally-focused-relationship-therapy) to promote connection and safety with those that matter most to you. I may integrate mindfulness as well to help you live more in the present and relate more skillfully to your emotions and thoughts so you make better choices. I also publish in professional journals and magazines and present at conferences. Emotional wounds can feel like broken bones, but are very treatable. I work with expert therapists, and am pro-diversity, working with clients of many backgrounds. I lived in Mexico 4 years, have a degree in Spanish (I speak it natively). There are many competent therapists, so it's important to find the right one for you. I look forward to hearing from you. While I do not accept insurance and I do not bill insurance providers directly, I can provide receipts to you to submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. This is only for PPO plans with out-of-network benefits.  PPO plans usually will reimburse somewhere between 40-100 percent after your deductible. Before making an appointment, we recommend checking your mental health out-of-network benefits first to find out if you will receive reimbursement, how much you will receive, and how to submit the receipts we give you.

“After trying many therapists, Dr. Linder is without a doubt one of the best therapists that I have ever had. He is professional, warm-hearted, and dedicated to his clients. His EMDR therapy helped me resolve trauma in a way I didn't think was possible.”

A 29 year old client from 2020

“"Dr. Linder helped rebuild my marriage after an affair and all that led up to it, using EFT and some EMDR . Eventually in his therapy we saw how the affair was the symptom and we healed its root. It was life-changing. We are doing great 16 months later.”

A couple in their 30s in 2021

“Hi Dr. Linder, this is so unexpected, but I was reflecting a lot and wanted to thank you. I was thinking how much you helped change my mindset and how it's thanks to you. You impacted my life in a powerful way; I can't thank you enough for the work you did!”
