Biography

LINDA F. WILLIAMS, MSW CCLC CPLC


For Linda F. Williams, a profound result of writing Whose Apple is it Anyway! was seven years of shedding layers of trauma, disappointment, and one bad destiny-diverting heartbreak after another. But, every layer shed brought clarity of vision as she has turned that pain into purpose – helping others find their purpose and leverage their past to empower destiny.

From Pain to Purpose

Linda is a survivor of rape, domestic violence, homelessness, and a 17-year marriage to a man later convicted as a rapist. She has the insight to recognize how emotional trauma and painful experiences lead to self-defeating behaviors that shout down purpose and immobilize destiny. She knows, from experience, the courage it takes to face down the past; and she is living proof that, “A lifetime of change is empowered by a single act of courage.” 

Publication Acknowledgements

Linda has been featured on NBCABCCBSFOX news outlets for her work as a life coach who helps her clients find their purpose and empower their destinies. She has also contributed to articles on businessed, education and lifestyle at Madame Noir, CNNMoneyCommunity College ReviewRescueACEOMain StreetAmerican Express Open Forum, The Network Journal and she has been profiled on Rene Syler's Good Enough Mother website. She has also been feartered as a National Network of Social Work managers Monday Morning Manager.

 

Life Coach & Behavioral Expert

 
Losing sight of hope and purpose is like falling asleep at the wheel, you don’t know you’re asleep
until you’re waking up. We lose touch with our God-given characters, our true selves,
our authentic personalities. With each trauma and negative life experience
we tend to become the wrong that is done to us.
 

As a Certified Christian Life Coach and trained psychotherapist, Linda has a Masters of Social Work, Certification in Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counseling, and is currently a doctoral candidate at Capella University. Linda holistically addresses the psychological and spiritual implications of the Proverb that says, “As a man thinks, so is that man.”  She has the insight to recognize how traumatic events and other painful experiences lead to self-defeating behaviors that can mutate our God-given characters and immobilize purpose by arresting our talents, skills, and abilities. 

 

Contact Linda today for a complimentary, no-obligation, initial coaching consultation. She knows, from experience, the courage it takes to face down the past. Remember, a lifetime of change is empowered by a single act of courage.  Step up and step into your purpose. Destiny cannot deny you. Don’t you deny destiny.

The only effective change is sustainable change.
