Dr. Linscott’s breadth of experience has uniquely contributed to his theory of practice that encompasses both healthy and abnormal development. He works from an attachment perspective to help clients gain understanding about negative relational patterns and emotional injuries. He provides “here and now” feedback, helping clients learn to respond in healthy ways to intense feelings. Dr. Linscott works to educate clients on their emotional and neurobiological processes, helping them understand both their mind and body responses. His goal is to provide a safe place where clients can learn to integrate strategies that encourage healthy reactions or alternative methods of coping.
