Denae Leigon

(LMFT)

About Me

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 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!

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.

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.
