Working with Linda helped me become unstuck from negative thinking and the pull of taking so-called “safe” career paths. She helped me see how following my passion, although scary, is doable, deeply fulfilling and a happier path. I couldn’t have made the shift without her.
Consultant, Co-founderArt/Work Practice, LLC
I got to work with Linda as a coach through the Windcall program and she was just the right match for me. Linda is thorough, excellent at getting to root causes of issues, and deeply committed to unveiling power within her clients. I felt seen, supported, and able to quickly move both technical and emotional blocks to my work out of the way, and drop into deeply purposeful work. I recommend her for folks who are ready to do some focused work towards their joy.
Writer and Organizational Healer
Linda’s wisdom, guidance, and passion were key in helping me realize the changes I needed to see and make in order to move forward with my career. Linda’s career coaching strategies greatly assisted in setting reasonable and achievable regular goals that facilitated making a long-term major change and a step forward. Her innovative approach to resume work encouraged me to reevaluate my approach towards resume writing and greatly improved careers communications strategies. Linda’s networking advice was similarly invaluable in assisting me with maximizing my return on investment for time spent on career and job search activities while maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
Operations Support Specialist
A friend recommended Linda to me for 1-on-1 coaching to support my leadership and help me get clarity on my leadership goals. It was a great decision! She has been indispensable in helping me show up as a better leader and helping me unravel the different layers of my experiences so I can better understand what’s happening and how I want to respond. Linda is responsive, incisive, and supportive. I highly recommend her.
Linda and I have been working together for about eight years now. She has coached me through major life goals: writing my MA thesis, running for office, losing a parent, and losing a job. I struggle with self-care and working with Linda helps me stay focused on caring for myself in spite of what is happening in my life, and to keep moving toward my goals, sometimes fast and sometimes slowly, but making progress. It helps to have someone who lovingly holds me accountable to my goals.

The Cost of Our Lives is an immigrant daughter’s compassionate exploration of complicated inheritances. Using archival records and oral histories with her Colombian-Mexican family, Linda González untangles los engaños and the silences of her childhood to ultimately create a moving portrait of the complex family relations that shape a woman’s life.
As an equity leader managing power dynamics, her coaching approach is helping me to dismantle white supremacist cultures by embracing my power. Her graceful approach pushes me out of my comfort zone so that I can fully embrace my Latina super power!
Executive Director at COLORADO CIVIC ENGAGEMENT ROUNDTABLE
I’ve had the good fortune to benefit from Linda González’ wise counsel in many areas. She is a gifted writer/editor, with a keen eye and ear for the written and spoken word and strong sense of the power of story. Linda’s extraordinary commitment to social justice and her efforts to expand opportunities for people of color, especially mujeres, is an inspiration. As she does for herself, Linda helps each of us envision and plan how we can create fulfilling personal and professional lives.

Linda is a thoughtful, well-grounded, and supportive beacon of light that coached me through a major transition. She also helped guide our team through challenging conversations on current and historical issues of race, class and gender in our organization and the larger environment.
Executive Director at MISSSEY, Inc.
Linda was an excellent coach to alumni of Windcall, a leadership resiliency program for community and labor organizers. I consistently received great feedback on her work and heard her in action myself conducting coaching “sampler” sessions on our program orientation calls. She is warm, supportive and concrete all at the same time.
