Welcome, I'm Leandra.
Whether you're dealing with depression, job and/or school stress, burnout, low self-esteem, substance abuse, or relationship issues, I'm here to help.
Do you keep repeating the same behavior even though you truly desire and know what it takes to change? Are you struggling to figure out or work towards your purpose? Do you feel like it's challenging to make decisions? Is it difficult to support yourself the way you would your friends and family?
I can help you gain insight into your behavior and identify your strengths and values to better guide you through the next steps in life. Together, we can figure out how your past and current experiences are influencing your current behavior and what's keeping you stuck. We'll use a cognitive-behavioral and values-based approach to reframe the narratives you've been telling yourself that no longer serve you and develop goals to achieve better alignment with your values. I also integrate mindfulness and art as additional ways to gain insight into yourself.
Seeking therapy is a big decision and kudos to you for deciding to take that next step. You deserve a safe space and to know you're not alone. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can feel comfortable sharing what you've been struggling to handle on your own and ready to start making progress.
