Linda Should get 10 Stars
I met Linda at the ISNAF symposium in Long Beach, Ca. We spoke for a brief moment and were not able to cover some of the issues that I'm facing with my children. But she spoke extensively on the subject of parent alienation which helped me understand some of those issues. She is difficult to locate for any kind of QA and I have no problems with that. I understand that she is busy. For those who cannot afford her therapy sessions and her books, we can visit a local library to see what's available from Linda.
I found out from our brief conversation that Linda is practicing out of Long Island, New York. Other pros said about her that she has been able to capture audiences throughout this country with her intuitive understanding and professional wherewithal of parent alienation, a form of child abuse that should have long been recognized by the legal as well as therapeutic family law establishment. I wish that her scientific research on the subject was more widely known to those of us who are subjected to this cruel and unusual punishment. Parent alienation destroys lives but PAS community has not been well unified in its efforts to legitimize and criminalize this form of abuse. For those who are still in litigation desperately fighting for the right to parent or visit their kids Linda offers Abacus Briefs to be introduced as evidence in family courts that explains what PAS is. Her service to the community of alienated parents is invaluable.
May be my review sounds more like a commercial but the more people know about PAS the better they'll be able to deal with it.
If only I could give Linda 10 stars instead of 5
A family therapist that's a cut above the rest
I'm dropping you a note to express my appreciation on all the help you have given me since 2005, it's amazing how my former wife retained you as her family relationship therapist and when you demanded that to get an overall picture of the case where my former wife was trying to obtain full custody of our son you saw right through the all the deception of her trying to win full custody. And you did this so well that my son's mother stopped seeing you due to the fear she had of the case getting thrown out which it eventually did. Linda you are an amazing therapist with a great gift not only of saving the custody battle but most important you saved my son and I. Again thank you for all the past and continuing support you give my son and I. God bless.

I attended a reunification "holiday"
with Turning Points 4 Families. I had not been with the children for the years and this was a strong PA situation. Linda had a very nice welcome for all of us, I found her program from start to finish to be very organized, educational and effective. You could see changes occur in the children while we were there..which surprised me.. Over the course of the last months, we have had many events that have required me to speak to Linda. She is always available day or night and offers excellent advice.
Our relationship with the children is sound and we have moved forward every day, although there is still work to be done. I'm certain that my relationship with the children would not be what it is today, if it was not for Linda and her program. Her experience with PA situations is second to none.
Linda Gottlieb worked with our family. We endured about 7 years of
constant litigation with my former spouse / childrens' mother. In the
end, we did not see one of our children for 1 year and another for 3+
months. Linda was an excellent expert witness and did a great job
convincing our Judge of the facts of the case and with reunification.
If it weren't for Linda, we may never have been able to put our family
back together and our kids would have endured further psychological
damage. Linda has our unqualified recommendation.
