After returning to Virginia, Linda worked with single mothers and their children who had experienced homelessness, lived in transitional housing, and were moving to independent housing in the community. She then took a position at a local Community Services Board where she served as an in-home therapist for children and their families and as a clinician working with individuals, couples, families, and groups. Linda was also certified to conduct mental health assessments to determine if a temporary detention order was needed for hospitalization.
Linda joined the H.U.F. Center in 2010 and is now focusing her efforts on her new role as the Director of Clinical Services. She is committed to collaborating with H.U.F. Center staff to provide effective treatment and to continuously adapt the clinical program to meet the ever-changing challenges and needs of the members.
