My name is Linda Burroughs and I would like to welcome you to the BetterHelp community. Acknowledging the need for support takes courage and is a major step towards making positive changes in your life. If you are ready, I am here to assist you.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 35 years of experience. I have had the opportunity to work in an agency that focused on the medical, social and emotional needs of children and adults. I have provided home based services to the physically and disabled, at risk mothers and adults experiencing depression, anxiety and feelings of loss. Additionally, I have worked as a school social worker, administrator of special education programs, principal of an early childhood building and an adjunct professor. In these roles, I have developed a unique set of skills, a wealth of knowledge and clinical expertise to help individuals increase self-awareness and develop life-long wellness.
I believe that personal growth comes from within for those who are determined to improve their quality of life. Yes, it takes hard work but your desired outcomes can be achieved. My job is to listen, assist you with developing positive strategies and celebrate your accomplishments as you move forward. I invite you to enlist my help as you begin your journey.
I look forward to working with you.

Linda has been helpful--I feel better with the techniques she has recommended. She is always open and listens to what I have to say. I feel like I am talking to a friend I have known for years. Betterhelp is better help even though it's all online.
