Hi!  I am Linda Tillmon, founder of Tillmon Behavioral Health Services LLC!  

I was born and raised in The Bronx of New York City, started my education at Harry S. Truman High School in Co op City and shortly after began my journey at St. John's University in Queens where I received my Bachelor's Degree of Science in Human Services.  I continued my education & completed my Master's of Social Work from Fordham University.   I worked in different settings such as emergency rooms, nursing homes, outpatient mental health centers, & ran day to day operations of mental health centers and federal qualified health centers. 

I have been working in this field for 24 years.  As I have been told, I am approachable and I am real.  You will see once we meet!   I have worked with individuals of ages 5 & up, specifically with individuals, families, groups and couples.  I utilize clinical interventions such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Problem Solving Treatment, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, & Play Therapy with children.  

 

As I speak highly about self care, I love watching movies in my spare time & listening to music of most genres.  My favorite genre is Neo Soul music as it relaxes me.  I love scented candles to soothe my sense of smell, love to dance & travel.  Overall, using your five senses is one of the best ways to self soothe.  But most importantly, my goal is to connect with you, understand you and help you with your journey to recovery.  Hope to hear from you soon!
