Linda Mitchell


Developer of MARCI – A Pathway to Professional, Personal & Social Enlightenment, Publisher, Writer & Healthcare & Elder Abuse Advocate

Linda Mitchell is a healthcare provider with over 36 years experience in both conventional and natural medicine. Linda came into the health field driven by a need to provide for her children and herself while going through a divorce. She was also inspired by her sister, Mary Lou, who died at the tender age of 6 from leukemia, while Linda was 4. As Linda entered the field of natural medicine, she learned how past experiences, especially trauma, can keep you from moving forward in your life and that old habits die hard.

Linda’s personal journey has been an experience in which she would not trade for the world, as it has brought her to this time in her life where she is more fully aware of the paths she has chosen, why she’s chosen them, and the healthier choices she chooses to make today. Running the NJ Shore Leukemia and Lymphoma marathon showed her how life has its hurdles and challenges. Often times we stop short right before we break through the barriers that hold us back, and this leaves us with unfulfilled hopes and dreams.

Linda’s advanced training through Upledger in CranialSacral Therapy, and Somatic Emotional Release has served her ability to work with children diagnosed with attention deficit, self-esteem and peer pressure, as well as adults who are working on healing trauma. Linda created the program MARCI, an acronym for Mindfulness, Awareness, Responsibility, Compassion and Intuition, a metaphor for the garden each one of us lives in every day. MARCI is intended to support personal, professional, and social growth in all sectors of life. Linda is a publicist of two health and wellness e-zines called MARCI and Conscious Health.

Linda is the Founder, Director and Partner of The Tree of Health Center, located in beautiful Sussex County, where she hopes to bridge the gap between all healthcare traditions, intends to change the dialogue to natural medicine being the first choice in healthcare, and build a Universal Retreat and Healing Arts Center. Linda is recognized for her advocacy work toward a healthier healthcare system, and speaking out on Elder Abuse, which is a soft spot for Linda after her elderly mother’s experience with mental and emotional cruelty. Linda is past Vice President and Past Member of the Safety Committee of the Health Professionals & Allied Employees Local 5107.

Linda lives in Sussex County, New Jersey, and enjoys finding time to read, meditate and play. Linda's most accomplished act has been raising her children, and enjoying being a grandma.
