I created "Moms In Transition", a workshop for mothers at different stages in their lives. I teach and coach at The Hivery in Marin, co-leading the 5-week "What's Next" workshops.  More info HERE

I have a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Dominican University, a College Counseling Certificate from U.C. Berkeley, a Career Counseling Certificate from J.F.K. University, and a Positive Psychology Coaching Certificate from the Wholebeing Institute.

I have worked in middle schools, high schools, private and public colleges and universities. Beyond my private practice I was a career coach at Hult International Business School, for master level business students coming from all corners of the world.

The common denominator is a deep desire for a new dimension, whether that be returning to the paid working world, going back to school or perhaps their children are older and they are finally ready for that adventure that has been shelved for many years.

“Linda thank you...so very much for all your support!! Your coaching was instrumental in keeping me motivated and positive through this process!”

“The strength of Linda Lesem’s work emanates from her natural inclination to listen and her uncanny ability to hear what is not being said. This gift, along with an impressive set of skills, makes her a profoundly empathetic counselor and a highly motivational coach.”
