Pemberley Vander Linden Counseling

chronic illness & wellness support

family counseling

It is my belief that most human problems stem from doubting in our innate goodness. We can feel like we will never be able to measure up, that we are disconnected from the people in our lives, and over time, this may lead to feeling unhappy, anxious, and disconnected from the people in our lives. We may question if we are ever good enough or feel like if people really knew us they would run for the hills. 

In individual appointments, we will work together to develop a safe place where we can examine what has set up you up to doubt yourself while we move towards achieving your goals.

Families face unique challenges, as your family is constantly evolving. Parenting is hard work and is jumbled with balancing multiple responsibilities--providing for the family, raising children, and one's own needs. Growing up is equally hard work as children try to figure out who they are as their needs shift to greater independence. When external pressures and life events are added in, families are asked to step up to an enormous task.

My work with families creates a safe space for each family member to share needs and desires, improve communication and reduce conflict.

When our most intimate relationships are the source of stress, life can become very difficult. 

Couples have a history containing both happiness and disappointments. The naturally occurring hurts, let downs and frustrations can make us forget the reasons we committed to the relationship in the first place. I will work with both of you to create a safe place where you can rediscover the reasons you connected and help you address how to build on your strengths to enrich your relationship.

I have particular insight into how disability and chronic health issues can effect our mental wellness and sense of self. It can be challenging to have your pain or discomfort be minimized or not understood by the people around you. It can also be exhausting to work with medical providers to arrive at a diagnosis when there are complex health issues occurring. 

If lifestyle change is needed to increase your health and wellness, a supportive person can be very helpful as you adjust old habits and create a new pathway of health. Together we will explore what health means to you and develop a supportive plan to reach your wellness goals.
