Let's get to the heart of the matter...

Linda Rose, San Diego Therapist

Therapist in San Diego – providing lasting change
for you, your child, or your relationship

The heart of the matter
is that relationships are central to our lives.  We all know that healthy relationships can bring us the greatest joy, and unhealthy relationships can cause the deepest pain. Pain often shows up in low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, addictions, and feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Most painful of all is when you find yourself repeating old negative patterns and not knowing how to stop.

I’m Dr. Linda Rose and I want to work with you
to get to the heart of your matter.

therapist for families and children

As a Teen & Parent Therapist:

I am passionate about helping youth develop in the most positive environment possible.  A large part of my career has involved working in public schools with gifted youth, at risk youth, teachers, and administrators.

I continue to have a steadfast commitment to youth and their parents. I use relational and cognitive-behavioral therapy techniques with youth and adults to help them solve their problems.

therapist for couples

As a Couples Therapist:

I am trained in the increasingly popular Developmental Model of Couples Therapy. Through this model, I help couples develop stronger attachments to each other while also encouraging them to develop their separateness from each other.

The Developmental Model incorporates the latest research in neuroscience to help couples develop the skills to have healthy, lasting relationships. I will help you develop a relationship where you both feel “seen” and loved.

For both same-sex and opposite sex couples, I provide a safe environment for each person to give voice to their relationship challenges. This allows for the kind of constructive dialog that resolves impasses and deepens mutual understanding and compassion.

Over the past 3 decades, I’ve helped individuals who struggle with family of origin issues, depression, anxiety, addictions, LGBTQ+ concerns, eating disorders, and a myriad of relationship problems. I love seeing people get to the heart of their matters to grow and experience happiness.  Single or in a relationship, I am committed to helping you develop a more fulfilling and happier life.
