More about me

Licensing: LPC, LMFT
Years in Practice: 28

My interactive style is very down-to-earth, infused with sincere and deep compassion. My therapeutic style could be described as eclectic because I will tailor my approach to your needs. I pull strategies from cognitive restructuring, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, rational-emotive, and reality therapies.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor as well as a Licensed Family and Marriage Counselor with over 28 years of experience in psychotherapy. I hold licenses in both Virginia and in North Carolina. I have extensive experience in helping clients with symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger management challenges, basic coping skills, workplace issues, relationship issues, parenting, and many others. Emotional irregularity underlies the challenges most people have that drives them to seek services, and I teach several powerful and simple techniques designed to help regulate these uncomfortable symptoms. I have an expertise in ages 5 - 75.

I fully understand and empathize with the difficulty most clients experience in making that first phone call, and will do my best to help you feel comfortable and relaxed. I will be with you every step of the way towards your healing process and am looking forward to meeting you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I have been working with Linda now for 9 months. I reached out to her after a huge crisis when I realized I simply could not handle the stress anymore. This incident occurred after losing 3 immediate family members in the previous 18 months, and of course, coupled with COVID, starting a business, and having chronic pain issues from the military. Linda has done an amazing job with helping me learn self-soothing and coping skills to help control my anxiety. I have seen a tremendous difference in my behavior and a profound improvement in all of my relationships. I feel much better able to simply deal with all the competing obligations in my life and Linda has made all the difference in the world!

Mrs. Giles is great. It’s amazing what has come out of these sessions and the awareness and detail of the events of my life she records. It’s nice to scroll back and read what we talked about. Helps me track my progress. Thank you very much

I've only had one official session with Linda. But she has gone above and beyond to stay in touch with me and help me deal with anxiety and depression issues both before and since our session. I believe we were perfectly matched by BetterHelp, and feel totally comfortable sharing anything with her.

Linda has really changed my life. She knew me better than I knew myself even after just one session, and she has helped me know myself better. I know that she wants the best for me, and she really shows that she cares for her clients and their well-being. I have full confidence in her many years of experience in the industry, and I already recommend Linda to anyone I know who may be looking for a councilor/therapist.

Linda is amazing. She's calm and rational and I feel a sense of relief during my sessions with her. She helps me think about what I can do to better otherwise stressful situations. Most importantly, she makes me feel good about myself.

Linda is the best! She understands that simple strategies and coping mechanisms are what facilitate growth and change. The stategies she shares are tailor fit for my needs, which means that they are super simple to remember and apply- even during a difficult or emotional moment. I appreciate that Linda has an excellent sense of when to listen and be compassionate, and when to push back with a little bit of tough love. I really feel as though I have progressed much quicker on my internal goals than I ever have with other councilors. She really is amazing at her job, and I cannot recommend her highly enough!

Linda Giles is honestly the best counselor I've had in year. She has helped me realize so much about myself. Plus she is just over all a good person.

I was very against talk therapy for a long time, but decided to try it out online since in-person appointments for myself haven’t been the best. Linda has helped me understand myself and my surroundings better within only a few months. She takes time to help me understand my emotions and ways to help control them. I was unable to afford therapy for a few months and those few months I would always speak about how I missed talking with her and knowing that there’s always someone there to listen. Linda is an amazing therapist, to say the least.

Linda was an excellent and compassionate listener. She is absolutely wonderful. Linda uses open dialogue and practical activities which helped me see and work through my feelings and the issues at hand.

T.A.·Jun 12, 2020


Linda uses a holistic approach, and is very wise. She has a multitude of ways to help me, and I already feel better after a couple of sessions.

S.A.·Jun 09, 2020


Linda is wonderful. She is kind and compassionate and has been extremely helpful to me so far. She engages with me between sessions through messaging. She is honest and thoughtful with a wealth of knowledge and techniques for me to apply as I work through my issues.
