Fundamental Psychology Welcomes Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Dr. Linda Thompson

From Dr. Angela Steranko, owner/founder

Fundamental Psychology is pleased to announce that Linda Thompson, Ph.D., LMFT has recently joined our team. Fundamental Psychology has been serving the mental health needs of children, teens, and young adults since 2017. Dr. Steranko says “There’s been a noticeable need for more providers in the area to support the parents and families of the younger client’s that I work with. Dr. Thompson’s experience will play an essential role in supporting the growing number of individuals, couples and families who are able to receive services.”

Dr. Thompson describes her work with adults as, “Assisting individuals in being authentic and genuine vs. living their lives by other’s expectations. We find the balance between staying connected with family and being an individual.” She describes her approach as, “An integrative approach of managing symptoms in the present while exploring the influence of past experiences and relationships.”

Within her work with couples, Dr. Thompson specializes in resolving conflict and improving communication. She enjoys helping couples who are looking to get some of the passion back after attraction has waned. She is also highly experienced in dealing with any stage of infidelity from early discovery through determining if a couple would like to reconcile or move on with other relationships. Dr. Thompson is LGBTQ+ affirming and values all relationships and individualized goals within each couple.

Family therapy with Dr. Thompson involves as many family members as possible, with a focus on each member communicating their needs and expectations in a healthy way. Dr. Thompson says, “We figure out when we need to be flexible and when we need to set boundaries”.

Dr. Steranko adds, “The addition of Dr. Thompson to our practice, allows children, parents and families to obtain a variety of services from providers who are centrally located to one another and can collaborate to ensure the best care.” To schedule an appointment with Dr. Thompson, contact Fundamental Psychology at 941-275-9183 or find additional information about Dr. Thompson at .
