About Me

Dr. Jason N. Linder, Psy.D., LMFT is a professor at Alliant International University. He is a licensed bilingual (Spanish-speaking) therapist specializing in relationship, trauma, addiction-related, and mindfulness therapies. Dr. Linder especially enjoys working with clients who are therapists, creators, entrepreneurs, and people who stutter. He is passionate about diversity, social justice, and serving underserved, multi-stressed, and disenfranchised communities. He completed his Doctor of Psychology degree at the California School of Professional Psychology in San Diego, his Master's in International Counseling in Mexico City at Alliant International University, and his Bachelor's in Spanish and Psychology (double major) at UC Davis. Dr. Linder trains EMDR therapists as an approved EMDR-Consultant. He is also close to completing his certification in EFT couple therapy. His doctoral research focused on combining EMDR and EFT with couples. He owns a private practice in Scripps, San Diego. Dr. Linder was recently published in the peer-reviewed APA journal Couple & Family Psychology, Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, Journal of International Systemic Therapy, as well as the Journal of Couple & Relationship Therapy, Psychology Today, Psychotherapy.net, Psychotherapy Networker, and Sage Research Methods Cases. Dr. Linder has also presented at professional and academic conferences. Dr. Linder works extremely hard for his clients; he's always learning more with articles, podcasts, conferences, etc., and clients report feeling exceptionally cared for in therapy with Dr. Linder, yet challenged. His private practice in San Diego currently may have an opening for clients, depending on scheduling. He also currently has one opening for an EMDR therapist who's working toward EMDR certification or wanting to sharpen their EMDR skills. Lastly, Dr. Linder loves serving therapists especially using EMDR therapy, creators and entrepreneurs, and people who stutter.
