Dr. LeAn Sanders


About Me

Hello, I am Dr. LeAn Sanders, a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Oklahoma, (LPC) in the state of Wyoming, Licensend Mental Health Practitioner, (LMHP) in the state of Nebraska, and also a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC) in the state of Utah. I am also a National Certified Counselor. I earned my graduate degree in Human Relations at the University of Oklahoma and went on to study General Psychology at Capella University to earn my Doctorate degree (PhD). I have been in practice for over 16 years in the Tulsa area. I am also a school counselor for an online school in Oklahoma. I have worked with middle school and high school students for over 12 years.

My approach has evolved over the years and will continue to do so over time, as I only utilize methods that have been shown to succeed. Currently, I utilize an eclectic approach to counseling with an emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), humanistic, and Client Centered Therapy . I do not believe in a one size fits all approach in counseling. I pride myself in providing clients with the best possible service I can offer, which includes understanding their culture, religious beliefs, lifestyle, etc. I strongly believe everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I specialize in eating disorders, trauma, addictions, anxiety and LGBTQ needs .

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

I have been working with LeAn for a few weeks now, and its really been a great help. She answers my many questions and worries in a thorough manner, while showing empathy and an understanding. LeAn really showed an interest to guide and make things easier, while asking the right questions for me to come to my own conclusions. Thanks a lot for this counselor and for this service.

LeAn helped me a lot in a very short period of time. She picked the right words and answered quickly. I had the feeling that she really tried to find the way, that works best for me and my circumstances. I can absolutely recommend her as a counselor.

I like how LeAn helps you look at both sides of a situation. She's very supportive of what you're going through and she gives excellent thoughts to that situation. She doesn't tell you what to do, she helps you figure it out on your own. I've only done this for about a month but my situation is so much better since I've started talking to her.
