My name is Dr. Linda Frazier, and I am a Licensed Psychologist (PSY 33134) at The Vine Counseling and Psychological Services. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages in a variety of contexts including testing and counseling. My passion is to help individuals reach their full potential as part of their journey to academic, emotional, social, and behavioral success. I believe that God has created everyone precious, and
that everyone has been given wonderful gifts and strengths that are simply waiting to be identified. My focus at The Vine Counseling and Psychological Services is to determine the best treatment course for my clients, and help them reach their true potential. I am dedicated to providing the highest quality of care for you or your child based upon each individual’s needs.
When it comes to testing, my goal is to help you or your child better understand each unique situation, and determine the best course of action based on each individual’s needs. I am experienced in testing in a variety of areas with individuals of all ages, including neurodevelopmental disorders, learning disabilities, and mental health disorders. Whether you are looking to identify CHALLENGES such as Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Learning Disabilities, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar or other disorders, or you are looking to identify STRENGTHS, such as High-IQ or Learning Potentials, I am always happy to help.
In addition to testing, I also provide counseling services to help individuals cope with
crisis situations or everyday struggles including depression, anxiety, bipolar, OCD and
more. For counseling, I love working with adolescents, college students, and adults. I
am experienced in helping clients work through a variety of struggles including suicidal
thoughts, disassociation, self-harm behaviors, trauma, family problems, work/school
stressors, gender identity and more. Additionally, I have a background working with at-
risk youth, working with children within the school setting, and working with families of
military, law enforcement and first responders. I believe that God has given every
individual the potential to be successful if given the correct tools to fit their individual
needs. I would be happy to help you or your child not only find these tools, but also
learn how to incorporate them into everyday life to be successful.
EDUCATION AND TRAINING
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Chapman University College.
Following my Bachelor’s degree, I continued attending Chapman University College,
where I received my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Upon
completing my Master’s degree, I felt that it was God’s calling for me to continue my
education and gain more knowledge to better serve my clients, so I decided to pursue
my Doctorate Degree. I received my Psy.D. in Applied Clinical Psychology through The
Chicago School of Professional Psychology and am now a Licensed Psychologist.
As an intern during my Master’s program, I worked with New Beginnings and Group
Home Support Services, providing therapy services and case management to
adolescents living in group homes through the foster care system. Through this
experience, I gained knowledge working with crisis intervention, high risk behaviors,
substance abuse, trauma, attachment issues, and other mental health concerns. While
completing my Doctorate program, I worked at The Gary Center, providing services to
underserved populations. This is where I began my testing experienced, and learned
my passion for guiding clients and their therapists to an individualized treatment path.
In 2015, I began my journey as a psychological assistant at The Vine Counseling and
Psychological Services under the supervision of Dr. Christine Duong-Perez. While
working in the private practice setting, I have greatly expanded my range of knowledge
and experience, and have and have learned my love for working with clients on a more
individualized level. As part of my work at The Vine Counseling and Psychological
Services, I have also had the privilege to work with Linfield Christian School and Bethel
Seminary, helping students identify and overcome challenges within the educational
setting. Now as a licensed psychologist, I am continuing my journey, and will continue
to grow my knowledge and experience to best serve my clients.
My approach to therapy varies based on each unique situation. For many clients, I use
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) techniques
to help them learn healthy coping skills and challenge negative thinking patterns. For
other clients, I help them process and work through trauma or daily stressors that may
be weighing them down. I also guide my clients in improving interpersonal conflicts and
implementing healthy boundaries in order to improve relationships, improve self-worth,
and increase self-esteem. Although these are common therapeutic techniques in my
practice, I also recognize that God has made everyone unique, therefore one approach
does not fit all. To fit each person’s unique needs, I listen to my clients and help guide
them in the direction that best fits their personality and points them in the right direction
to reach their goals.
I enjoy helping others and love watching people work towards reaching their full
potential. If you believe that you or your child would benefit from testing or counseling
