"Dr. Linda Olson the psychologist, the victim advocate, the healer has
a vision for how the world should be and she has the will to make it
happen. She is committed to ending domestic violence because it has
impacted her life so personally with the loss of two sisters. Her
drive, energy and ability to raise hope enable her to advocate for
unconditional love and support that she pioneers as one of the ways to
"Linda Olson was a psychologist long before she obtained her PhD. I say this
because Dr. Linda Olson, has an innate ability to reach out to people of all
ages on many different levels and relate with empathy to the particular
needs of the human condition. She does this due to a deep observation and
respect for others as well as a level of integrity developed throughout her
many years of education and journey of self discovery. This quest for
learning and awareness, has led to a healthy respect and love for her
physical and emotional well being. In recognizing that by having her
emotional house in order, she is able to be a guide for others to do the
same. The result is the gift to themselves of unconditional love. First love
yourself so you may pass that gift on to others one heart to another, two
hearts becoming one.
I am proud to know the woman, the Dr. and friend."
