Linnie Pickering, LMSW
Rye, NY


Linnie Pickering, LMSW, specializes in issues of loss, grief and complicated grief. Trained and certified at Columbia University, she helps individuals “stuck” in grief and mourning, using the Complicated Grief Treatment (CGT) protocol developed by Columbia University’s Center for Complicated Grief. This is a short-term, 16-week therapy that helps individuals adapt to loss and resolve grief complications.  As a therapist, Linnie sees her role as being both teacher and “Sherpa” (an experienced guide), helping her patients acquire the skills and insights to handle life’s difficulties and challenges. Linnie Pickering has extensive experience in the prevention and treatment of dating and domestic violence, child sexual abuse, suicide prevention, sexual harassment and sexual assault. She has worked on suicide, crisis, breast cancer, and domestic violence hotlines. She provides guidance in how to recognize the warning signs of abuse, prevent abuse from continuing, and the safest ways to leave a dangerous relationship.

Family Member Quote

“I had been having a very hard time since my son’s death and finding Linnie was a godsend. She uses the Columbia University Center for Complicated Grief’s method for short-term counseling. She is compassionate, smart, always caring, and has made me feel 100% safe. Each time I see her, she has given much thought to our previous session and has an amazing ability to be completely present.”
