Linda is an American healer, author, and teacher of metaphysics, as well as a professional musician and former school counselor. She began her metaphysical practice in 1978 in the Netherlands after discovering her aptitude for using her intuition to help others.
Providing support to clients looking for significant answers to questions concerning a soul’s purpose in everyday life, Linda unwittingly pioneered an entirely new method of training within the Dutch self-help community. Her book, Intuitieve Ontwikkeling (Intuitive Development), published in 1985, soon became a bestseller (the book recently went into its 15th printing in Holland) and remains a landmark resource for those seeking encouragement in this field.
The most striking realization Linda had in the course of her work was how each and every human being has full access to his or her own elaborate body of spiritual information—if only they have the interest required to seek and find it. This access is one of the lesser-known and/or acknowledged gifts of the remarkable human psyche.
As many now know, the gift of the imagination is truly the most powerful tool we humans possess in determining our ability to “be still and know,” and it remains the primary source of all our self-healing.
As co-founder in 1987 of Mens & Intuitie (People & Intuition), one of the largest schools for energy awareness and intuitive healing in the Netherlands (with up to 350 weekly trainees), Linda, a mother of four children, spent sixteen years in that country as healer, meditation teacher, and published author. In 1993, she and her family left the Netherlands to live on the West Coast of the United States. Her school was eventually handed over to a number of graduates who continue to keep the spirit of this institution alive.
In 1998, her bestselling Dutch book Intuitieve Ontwikkeling (Intuitive Development) was published in English by Hampton Roads Publishing Company in the USA—entitled Intuition Magic: Understanding Your Psychic Nature.

A quote by Dr. Seuss, who shares the same day of birth as Linda (March 2nd): “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
“Integration of all that we know and can accomplish” remains Linda’s mission.
