Linda Bannerman, MA, LMHCWA, IntrnHI, Counselor in Eastsound
Whether you are in crisis or simply ready to take the next step in your life journey, you have come to the right place. Using the best combination of my extensive skills (including Mindfulness, EMDR, Clinical Hypnosis, NVC and couples' communication, Conflict Resolution, Anger Management, and more), I begin with the premise that whatever is troubling you is likely the result of an ineffective strategy you have learned. My passion is working with couples, individuals, families and children. I am skilled in helping those who suffer from anxiety, depression, OCD, dissociative disorders, divorce, grief, sexual trauma, PTSD, weight issues and much more.
With couples, I weave together the techniques of Terrance Real, the Gottmans, Marshall Rosenberg, Willard Harley, Stan Tatkin, and Attachment Theory to help you create a relationship of joy and safety. For individuals, I combine mindfulness techniques and 35 years of experience in all modalities above to help you put your life back on track.
Since I work from three different locations (Maui, Longview, & Orcas Island), I employ face-to-face sessions or video conferencing in my practice,helping those who are disabled, have child care or transportation issues or would prefer the convenience of counseling from home. My video clients all report they love it!

Relationship Rescue Couples Workshop

This 3 day workshop is held at my beautiful retreat home high above the Salish Sea on Orcas Island. You stay on site and come away with all the skills you need to begin a new relationship or to reconstruct a seasoned one. You will learn about the unique qualities each of you bring to the table to heal one another and will have hours of practice during which I coach you in communicating in new ways with your partner so that you connect with one another in the way you've always dreamed. See my website for specifics.
