I began working with Leonard in June 2023 after a low point in my life in one of my most important relationships. Leonard has helped immensely by sharing with me excellent techniques to aid me with my anxiety, communication, and my relationships. He's helped me to understand the importance of celebrating my wins and sharing my thoughts and most importantly my feelings with others who love me. He's also taught me how to cope and be present for my loved ones during difficult times. He is an excellent therapist who is very knowledgeable and interested in helping others. I highly recommend working with Leonard.
