Hi there! My name is Alesha Leonard, and I am a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor with three years of experience in the mental health counseling field. I have a wide range of experience working with individuals between the ages of 3 and 65 experiencing depressive and anxiety symptoms, substance abuse, and developmental/intellectual disorders including autism spectrum disorder and ADHD/ADD.
I take particular interest in working with the teen/young adult population, and I am well-versed in helping clients combat stressors related to life transitions, anxiety, and depression.
I approach helping clients with a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy, and mindfulness practices. I believe in an integrative style to approaching client needs, as not all clients fit the same formula for recovery.
I understand that everyone’s journeys are different, and that adjusting to necessary changes for wanted results is hard. I believe it is important for clients to feel comfortable with stating their needs and what they believe may work for them.
In my office, transparency is important, and I hope to provide an environment for you to feel comfortable with being vulnerable! I hope to offer you an open ear and insights on ways to tackle adversities and maintain peace on your journey to success.
