E. Linn, Ph.D.
I am the counsellor and
instructor. In both the therapy room and the classroom, I help people learn
to deal with anxiety, depression, and stress, and to take the very best
care of themselves. I also specialise in relationship and communication
In my view, people are
typically not evil, sick, or defective, but misinformed and suffering from
a wide variety of unhealed wounds. My premise is that emotional expression
that is choked down does not go away. Instead, unless and until we have
completed that expression—in its fullness—we remain wounded
and our lives remain disturbed.
In order to heal, we need
clear information, to finish “unfinished business,” and to learn and become
competent in the communication skills. My classes
and workshops are designed to provide clear information as well as
instruction and practice in the communication skills. And fortunately,
stifled expression (primarily, but not solely “pain”) yearns for completion
and Organic Process Therapy,
a form of Primal Therapy, which I have been practising for
21 years, facilitates this completion.
I earned my doctorate
in Clinical Psychology (1985) at Duquesne
University, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where I studied existential-phenomenological
psychology (psychology as a human science). After working
as a psychologist for six years at a Community Mental Health Clinic, also
in Pittsburgh, I was a licensed psychologist in private practice for 17
years. Since 1994, I have been practising as a counsellor in Vancouver,
I’ve also earned an M.A.
in General Psychology (1969), at Pepperdine University, and a Bachelor
of Industrial Design (B.I.D., 1956) at Syracuse University. I have written
I Am What I Am!
