About

Linda J. Wilk, MAPC

67 years ago I started on this journey on earth.  I think I always was a seeker, and I definitely was a listener.  My mom told me I brought the stray people, dogs and cats home from the beginning (I've added farm and wild animals now).  I have a natural feeling towards justice in the world, though I have accepted that life is not fair.  What I believe is that if those of us who seek peace do not continue seeking it and teaching it, then there will definitely be chaos and violence and never-ending war, so we have to work every day towards peace, from the core of our being outwards.  This is what I believe "God", whatever it is, has called me to do.  To that end, I spend time every day in contemplation, listening for direction, to that still, small voice, and I listen to the way God works through people as well.  I live my life along the river with my husband, dogs, cats and chickens, and with whomever else happens along.  I am blessed to have many recovering and spiritual people in my life.  We have 3 children and many other close Friends who happen into our lives.  May you be one of them!

Linda J. Wilk, MAPC.
Pastoral Counselor/Coach.

Part of that life journey has been my evolution as a counselor/therapist towards a coach.  I've been privileged to study under some of the best professors and mentors, from Jungians to Object Relations analysts to Family Therapists and finally to Brief Therapists and DBT practitioners.  Finally I moved towardcoaching because it is wonderfully goal=oriented and does not rely on the insurance system for its monies.  I like the idea of clear contracts and boundaries more and more as I age into wisdom, and I like combining the best of the wisdom I have gained from all of my mentors to offer a conglomeration of approaches to help you tpo problem solve your own dilemmas.
