**If my fees are too much, you can work with my associate, Sarah Beiruty (858-789-2659), 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 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 40-80 percent after your deductible. Before making an appointment, please check 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 I 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!”
