Announcement icon Dear Clients. I am offering online TeleTherapy for those individuals and families impacted by COVID-19. Your mental health matters to me!
I help teens and adults work on overcoming and coping with mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and substance abuse. I also enjoy working with couples and families to help them communicate better and resolve interpersonal conflict in a healthy way. I'm a certified Prepare-Enrich marital and pre-marital counselor. I also work with older adults, like empty nesters and individuals dealing with end of life issues. I am a systemic family therapist, meaning that I examine all dimensions of my clients' lives - biological, psychological, relational, and social - to help them grow in a positive way.
As a therapist, I am warm, empathetic, and understanding. I believe that all thoughts, feelings, and behavior serve a purpose. My goal is to help clients identify their purpose and then work to find healthier, more constructive ways to accomplish that purpose. I believe every person is unique and I help each client self actualize their full potential.
I look forward to working with you on your mental health goals. Contact me for a free 15-minute consultation, to schedule an appointment, or find out more about our offered services and rates. Palm trees remind us of relaxation and contentment. They can also withstand the harshest storms - hurricanes. I can help you build resilience to weather life's storms.

Joe Leonard's Groups

Men's Support Group

I offer a support group for adult men who are recovering from any type of addiction or are struggling with depression, anxiety, or other mood disorders. I facilitate the group, but the participants provide mutual support and insight to help other participants grow and self actualize their goals. I use a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy called Behavioral Activation, which focuses on setting Small, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Bound (SMART) goals. The group also uses interactive activities, such as the Values Card Sorting exercise and mindfulness meditation. Attendees must be sober during meetings, even if still using alcohol/substances.

More about this group

SMART Recovery Group

This group is a SMART Recovery alternative to AA and NA groups for people who do not resonate with 12 step programs. I facilitate the group, but the participants do the work of sharing stories and insights to support other participants. The group uses a cognitive-behavioral therapy approach called Behavioral Activation, in which participants set Small, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Bound (SMART) goals to maintain recovery and self actualize their strengths and values in their everyday lives. Participants must be sober when they attend group, even if they are still using. This is for the benefit of others.
