As a certified holistic health counselor, Reiki master and metaphysical practitioner, Linda Amato has been working with clients for seven years, helping them to heal from their past. In doing so, she has learned that fear is the greatest of demons after abuse of any kind, physical or emotional. She was always amazed by the power love projects onto people when it is taken away. For thirty years she was the sole person responsible for her dad, who was diagnosed as a manic-depressive. Yet, to her he was the wisest man. Her belief in life is that anything is possible because change is the key to transformation when the life-experience you are living is not working out.
As a mother of four young adults, she has always been aware that she was their first teacher and inspired them to be whoever they needed to be with love, kindness and compassion for all beings. She respected them tremendously, and she has learned from them how to grow and transform during her own journey. Being married these past forty years to her childhood sweetheart has allowed her to learn wonderful lessons of acceptance, change, and respect for one another.
Amato has lived in Bellmore, New York, for the last twenty-four years and has truly been blessed by the experiences of her life as an at-home wife and mother. She enjoyed every single minute of her daily activities, but her dream was always to be a published author.
