I am a family and marriage counselor licensed in California with over 30 years experience. I worked for 19 years as a therapist and supervisor at a county Children's Mental Health Department. While there I had the opportunity to lead parenting classes, lead support groups, and work with clients to improve communication and stability. The couples and families presented with a range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, adoption issues, attachment issues, abuse and trauma, and ADHD. In addition, I was the therapist for Juvenile Hall.
My counseling style is compassionate and open. I use a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach that is client driven. I know it takes courage to be vulnerable and I strive to provide a safe and trusting connection in order to benefit my client. The road to growth can be challenging and exciting, but it can lead to the life you have envisioned. I am here to support you on that path.

Denae has been very helpful over the past year. Thank you for your support.
Denae is a wonderful counselor, her insight is always spot on. I feel like she hears me and understands me in a way that my last couple of counselors have not. I look forward to my sessions with her every week!
She is a very patient, wise, and nice lady.
Danae offers compassion, wisdom, and communicative expertise in working with me. I feel understood but not coddled, advised but not lectured, and like I’m being clearly helped in a journey toward being my best self. Highly recommended.
Probably the best counselor I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.
Denae Leigon and I did text based counseling. She had words of wisdom that helped me feel more confident in my choices.
Denae is a great listener, and offers wonderful suggestions as they are needed!
Denae is a great therapist. She’s nonjudgmental and listens to my concerns without jumping to give advice right away.
I am so grateful that I have been able to work with Denae. I felt supported, LOVED, and trusted that she was not judging me amidst a crisis. I honestly don’t know what I would have done without her support! I thank God for sending her to me.
Denae is a fantastic, warm-hearted counselor, with much wisdom to impart. She's helped me deal with complex family and relationship issues. Ultimately, her brand of engaged listening and advice is uniquely effective for anyone needing help in life.
