Linda Roggow, MSW, LICSW, RPT-S
Master of Social Work, Licensed Independent Clinical Social  Worker

I have worked with individuals, children and families for more than 30 years. I graduated with a master’s degree in social work from the University of Hawaii and went on to focus much of my work on children and families formed through adoption. I obtained my clinical social work license in 2001 and was certified as a Registered Play Therapist-Supervisor in 2010. In addition to being a clinical supervisor and consultant, I have experience in the areas of trauma, attachment, anxiety, depression, grief, oppositional behaviors, ADHD, relationship and transition issues, personal growth and spiritual issues.

While I have been educated and trained in a variety of therapeutic methods, the foundation of my work is based on my faith in Jesus Christ, who has been gracious and just in forgiving me and guiding me to where I am today. My prayer is that the work that is done at Journeys of Healing, Inc. be for His glory and purpose.  While this is my foundation, each person has to come to their own understanding of who God is and what God is up to in their own life.  I use a holistic approach to support the healing process, integrating the mind, body and spirit beginning where the client is and helping them to identify their own personal goals.

Sharon Bonnett, MSW, LGSW

I joined Journeys of Healing, Inc. in 2017. I received my Bachelors in Social Work from Bethel University, St. Paul, and my Masters of Social Work from Minnesota State University, Mankato. I am passionate about helping children and families work together toward positive change and healing. My clinical experience includes issues related to early childhood trauma, adoption, attachment, sensory integration, parent education, immigration and transracial families. Prior to joining Journeys of Healing, Inc., I provided home-based family therapy and early childhood group therapy. In addition to my clinical work, I have experience in international child welfare; advocating for family-based care as an alternative to institutional care in East Africa. I also have experience in immigrant and refugee assimilation issues and community development. I believe that the work of therapy is directly influenced by the person of the therapist. I work within a systemic framework, which means that I view people within the context of their relationships and environment. As a follower of Christ, I recognize the unique design and inherent worth of each individual while respecting the spiritual perspective they bring into therapy.
