Dr. Linda Makinson originally started our counseling practice. She completed her PhD in Counseling and Counselor Education at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro in August of 2001. She specializes in individual as well as marriage and family counseling. Dr. Makinson is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in North Carolina and a Nationally Certified Counselor.
When she is not working with counseling clients, she is spending time with her husband, Steve, their three sons and two grandsons or hanging out on their farm in southern Guilford County. It is interesting to note that Dr. Makinson also holds an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh and an MBA from the University of Dallas. Prior to entering the counseling profession, she held engineering positions at Texas Instruments, GTE/Sprint, and AT&T.
