Primary Therapist

Meet Linda Whiteside, MA, LCPC, a seasoned Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over a decade of unwavering commitment to delivering top-notch mental health services to those seeking recovery from substance abuse and other mental health disorders. With an impressive history of over 25 years of expertise in therapeutic and psycho-educational groups, Linda can be aptly called a seasoned “groupie” in her field.

Linda’s deep-seated passion for aiding others on their recovery journeys is rooted in her losses and struggles. Embracing her transformative journey, she earned the title of a Certified Grief Specialist. Since then, she has diligently provided individual and group therapy, guiding individuals to navigate their challenges and rebuild their lives.

One of Linda’s standout achievements is establishing and facilitating “Houses of Healing,” a highly successful program implemented at a maximum-security prison for men in southern Illinois. This transformative program empowers individuals to confront their past traumas, paving the way for forgiveness and healing.

Linda firmly believes that forgiveness is the most potent resource in life, and she dedicates herself to helping her clients choose to forgive themselves. In her therapeutic approach, she exudes a caring, compassionate, and supportive demeanor, guiding individuals from their current position to where they aspire to be.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson beautifully stated, “What lies behind you and what lies in front of you pales in comparison to what lies within you.” Linda firmly holds the belief that every individual harbors the potential to surmount their challenges and discover healing within themselves. With a relentless commitment to opening her clients’ inner strength, she is wholeheartedly devoted to empowering them to reach their fullest potential on their transformative journey toward recovery.
