As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have worked with individuals struggling with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, anger, grief and addiction. I aim to create a safe, supportive environment for my clients to process their emotions, and to create positive change in their lives.
I believe that learning to live in the present allows us to experience the beauty that surrounds us, both from within and from the outside world. Anxiety, depression, and unresolved experiences keep us from connecting with ourselves and others, and we end up living life on autopilot. It can be difficult to slow down our thoughts and regulate our emotions and we miss out on all the joy that can be part of our life. We will work on healing from the past, practicing healthier coping skills, learning new tools to manage challenges, and adopting healthier thought patterns. Meditation and grounding exercises are often used in sessions.
Many of us experience recurring feelings of loss, being lost, not belonging, unshakable sadness, anxiety about future outcomes. We may have experienced trauma, tragedy, abuse as a child or as an adult, toxic relationships or substance abuse etc. If you are reading this you have survived it and I salute your resilience. However sometimes we struggle to feel healthy and wholesome again. The good news is that no feeling is FINAL. Feelings come and go like the weather based on the thoughts that spin around in our heads. The most efficient way to handle such uncomfortable feelings is to learn how to understand and manage our thoughts.
Kudos for taking this first step toward starting your therapeutic journey. Choosing a therapist is a very personal and can sometimes be a confusing process. I recognize that finding a therapist that is a good fit for your needs is important but not always easy! In my practice, I believe that establishing a genuine and collaborative relationship is vital. I work to establish a safe, judgement-free environment where you feel heard. I utilize an integrative approach drawing from psychodynamic, trauma-focused, feminist, and strengths-based practices, tailoring to and honoring the unique needs of each client.

“Change your thoughts and change your world.” -Norman Vincent Peak It sounds simple, but it often is not and without change, there isn’t growth. At some point in our lives, we can all benefit from talking with someone to discuss challenges of daily life, stressors, transitions, depression, anxieties, and fears. Sometimes we yearn to be heard, better understood or to gain better understanding of ourselves or why we do the things we do or make the decisions that we make. Therapy can be a collaborative journey to explore these facets of our lives to refocus on a more positive and holistic approach to how are going to move forward.
Roll your sleeves up and let's gently dig in. Relying on evidenced based practices, professional and lived experience, and collaborative practices we will work to create a space that is unique to your needs. The courage to accept or change factors that are creating a lack of wellbeing will begin in sessions and continue between sessions. Lee is passionate about working with adults throughout the life span, focusing on depression & anxiety, substance use, young adult & later in life adult transitions, parenting, and individuals who identify with the LGBTQIA+ community.
Establishing a trusting relationship and an environment that is warm and supportive where clients feel safe and motivated to engage in their therapeutic journey is my essential goal. My approach to therapy is formulated by the uniqueness of the person, along with the uniqueness of the environmental and familial systems within which they have developed. Over the past 20 years I have worked with individuals, groups, families, and couples and have treated several mental health related issues. Some of these issues include: Depression, Anxiety, Grief, ADHD, Self-Esteem, Transitions, Relationship/Family, Attachment, Prof. Supervision.
I specialize in working with people suffering anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I help those suffering with debilitating symptoms of nervousness, low self-esteem, anger issues, motivation problems, and problems with self-love. It may be hard to get up in the morning or get moving toward your goals and you just need some extra help to start moving in the right direction. I can help you move through this. Note* I believe in racial justice and providing a space of safety and healing for all. I believe that in order for "all lives to matter" ALL black and brown lives need to matter first. I am an avid supporter of the LGBTQAI+ community.
I successfully work with adults, adolescents, children, and families by using evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Mindfulness, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral (TF-CBT), and Eco-Systemic Family (ESFT) therapies. I implement these techniques by personalizing them to your specific therapeutic journey so that you and your family can learn the skills needed to persevere over depression, anxiety, and trauma while also mastering interventions that can aid you in improving your communication and social skills.
My goal as a therapist is to engage authentically, share honestly, and think openly. I have been fortunate to work with people in end of life care, chronic illness, grief and loss, incarceration, addiction, autism, depression, anxiety, trauma, and have spent most of my career supporting youth and families through a variety of life stages and challenges. I provide opportunities for people to engage in experiences that will expand their understanding, explore their circumstances, and develop resources for their unique journey.
Tired of just getting by in life? Sometimes life problems and mental health issues can stop people from achieving their full potential. I specialize in helping people to work on their problems, learn effective coping tools, and achieve the life they want. I work with older teens transitioning from school to adult life, students who want to decide on a career path, adults who are considering a career change, and professionals who are struggling with life problems like relationship issues, work/life balance and stress.
My clients often want to deal with issues that prevent them from living a full, happy, healthy life. Perhaps they want to tweak their relationships or cope with life transitions like a new job, illness, transitioning to adulthood, or death of a loved one. It is my goal to help people to maximize their potential! I also do clinical supervision for counselors who are working towards their LPC and LPCC levels of licensure. I love doing counselor supervision and it is a pleasure to assist other counseling professionals to achieve their goals.
Good grief. I do not envy anyone scrolling through these profiles! Difficult to wade through (and just a tad sanctimonious, no)? Comes with the territory I guess, but therapy isn't about some secret knowledge or set of life skills! A therapist's job is to LISTEN and to (MAYBE) nudge you toward the (uncomfortable) realization that you are caught up in the same patterns as ever! You are starting to notice them, no? Come to me, if so. And if you are ready to work on them. It won't be easy (You might not even WANT to know). But if investigation and discovery seems SOMEWHAT exciting... I will be your collaborator, resource and ally.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board-Certified Music Therapist focused on creating a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment in which I collaborate with clients to pursue their goals. I draw from psychodynamic and humanistic theories to assist clients in becoming aware of ways in which past experiences may influence one’s connection with self and others today, while accessing and engaging with inherent areas of strength and health.
I enjoy working with various populations including, but not limited to, those struggling with day-to-day stressors, depressive/anxiety related symptoms, interpersonal stressors and trauma. Clients can vary from adolescents to adults in various settings including both individual and family sessions.
Has everything gone to shit? Are you tired of the stereotypical therapy session where you talk, they take notes & you leave feeling like you just ripped open your soul for a stranger who may or may not think you’re a total wackjob? I have and that’s why I gathered a group of cool ass therapists to help you work through your shit.
