About Linda M. Franke

I offer 20 years of experience in assisting individuals in their healing from a wide range of symptoms associated with physical trauma including car accidents, falls, surgeries, natural disasters, and chronic stress.  Clients appreciate my collaborative body psychotherapeutic approach.  This collaborative approach is especially necessary when healing from interpersonal trauma stemming from childhood neglect and abuse, shame and attachment wounds. Developmental trauma is treated with a hands on approach.  I utilize my touch training skills to assist in the healing of Developmental Trauma.  I can assist with life transitions, anxiety, depression, finding meaning and healing from life's ongoing challenging events. Together we move toward Wellness, resiliency and a balanced healthy lifestyle.


My intention is to create a safe healing environment in the sessions I facilitate. 


I am trained in a number of healing modalities.  I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and an Alexander Technique Teacher.  I have advanced somatic skills training with Steve Terrell in touch work, Diane Poole Heller PhD - DARe Attachment workshops, Dave Berger - BASE.  I have also trained with Raja Selvam, Ana Do Valle and Ray Castillino. I am also a Safe and Sound Protocol facilitator, a listening systemp developed by Steven Porges.


Benefits of our work together may include greater ability to make life affirming choices, more available energy, greater emotional, physical and spiritual growth and nervous system resiliency. I pride myself with the ability to assist individuals to navigate life's ongoing challenges and broaden life experience. I combine body/mind/spiritual healing techniques grounded in the body and honoring the individual's own healing journey.


I became a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and an Alexander Technique teacher in 2001 following my own healing journey.   I am approved by SETI to offer consults and personal sessions for students in all levels of SE trainings.   I am an adoptive mom and reside with my husband, two teenagers,  and 7 four legged friends in Southwest Virginia.
