Seeking help can be one of the most difficult things to do. If you're seeking counseling services, you probably recognize things aren't working, you're stuck, hopeless, and/or maybe you don't know where to go from here. You might be numb or feel like everything is too much. Your experiences are important and valid, but it can be hard to see that after dealing with it alone for so long. You want to live your life without this bringing you down.
I believe people deserve to have a safe and compassionate space where they can be heard, understood, and heal. We will work together to increase understanding of you in order to help you live a meaningful life with growth and empowerment. We will work together to identify goals and manageable steps along your path of healing.

Working with Leona has been a very helpful and beneficial experience as I process a difficult period of my life. I trust her and she's helped me set goals to work towards in therapy. Since our sessions started, I feel like I have made significant progress.
