Berklee Leary

(LPC, NCC, MA)

About Me

Hi! I am Berklee, a Licensed Professional Counselor from Arizona. I have over 6 years of therapeutic experience working with clients from a variety of backgrounds and presenting problems. My counseling style combines empathy (being a supportive, listening ear) with cognitive-behavioral techniques (analyzing how our negative thoughts impact our behaviors). I believe in being compassionate, yet solution-focused. With all of my clients, I individualize each treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, I see many therapeutic issues through a trauma-informed lens. I have extensive experience with children, women, and faith-based populations in particular. As a parent of two young boys, I have a passion for maternal mental health and postpartum support. Outside of BetterHelp, I am the Clinical Specialist for a K-12 special education program. I oversee the clinical and counseling needs of 70 students with emotional disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorder. No matter your background, I look forward to joining with you on the road to healing. You already have all the tools you need, I am excited to show you how to use them!

I’ve only been working with Berklee for a short time but before trying BetterHelp I did another online therapy program and the therapist never offered me a past, present, future worksheet or a goals worksheet and I felt so unsure how to present what I was going through. So far, I fee Berklee has far exceeded the previous counseling I was doing online and look forward to working with her further.

Berklee is very knowledgeable and understanding. She has a very kind demeanor that makes an open environment that you feel comfortable discussing all your issues in. She genuinely cares about her patients and doesn’t make it feel like she is “working” while talking to you. I have only been working with her for a little over a month but she has already helped me so much. Would highly recommend Berklee to anyone seeking help!

Berklee is really an amazing counselor. She is supportive, informational, and very easy to connect with! Every time we talk I feel so much better and process farther with my goals.

Berklee has been a great resource for me as she is always present in our conversations and helps to ensure we focus on solutions that are in my best interests and that work well for me. I strongly recommend her services for anyone whom is seeking support from an understanding and determined therapist.

Love Berklee. Working with her has been life changing for me - and it has only been a few months. She listens with intent, guides enough to give you opportunity to be part of the process and is SO EASY to talk to. She is just what I needed. Very grateful to have met her!

Berklee is kind, compassionate, wise, and most importantly, does not shy away from asking the probing questions necessary to help dig to the root of an issue. I appreciate her so much!

Berklee is a great counselor and she makes sure she understands the root of the problem and doesn’t just focus on making you feeling better temporarily.

Written by M.A. on Feb 03, 2020 after counseling with Berklee for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and anger management

It’s been only a couple times that we’ve talked and written, but she immediately made me feel at ease about the issues I’m dealing with. I look forward to continuing with her.
