Three Magic Words

Three Magic Words can help relationships, often in remarkable ways. In this contribution to Rancho La Puerta's Inner Fitness series, Linda's marvelously practical and practically marvelous essay is HERE.

Linda Carroll


I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has been working as a psychotherapist for 35 years, a teacher, and a Board Certified Life Coach.

I am the author of Love Cycles: The Five Essential Stages of Lasting Love, which has been translated into four languages, and the highly-acclaimed book, Love Skills, published in 2020.

To reach as many people as possible about the steps to true intimacy, I frequently present my “Love Cycles” program at the renowned Rancho la Puerta wellness retreat and other venues across the country. I also speak about relationship issues on radio programs and podcasts, and I write for many online magazines.

The deepest meaning of being human has always fascinated me. Throughout my adult life, I’ve studied psychology, poetry, philosophy, spirituality and literature, and I’ve come to understand how those realms intertwine and enrich one another.

Additionally, I have found that my own everyday challenges—maintaining a loving, long-term relationship, raising children, developing my career, facing illness, and grieving the loss of people I love—have been my most valuable teachers. The very experiences that have brought me my greatest joys and pain have been the sources of my greatest life lessons.

Like anyone with whom I work, my own life has been filled with complexity. My calling is to use that complexity to help my clients claim their own stories and find their own paths.


I would welcome the opportunity to help you discover your next growth path, and to help you to safely and wisely reach your heart’s destination.

Linda Carroll: Counseling

Whether your issue feels small or overwhelming, I can help you develop strategies to help you resolve it. When challenges are long-term and can’t readily be changed, I will help you better manage and accept them. Together, we'll work to increase your well-being, problem-solving abilities, and self-compassion.

Linda Carroll: Couples

I know how fragile the ties that hold us together can feel. Frequently, I see couples who think they want out of the relationship, when what they really want is a way out of their pain and a set of tools for rediscovering intimacy and joy. I can help you to discover what you truly want in your intimate partnership.
