About Me

I've been working in this field since 1995. I've worked in a variety of situations from inpatient drug rehab for Native American women and their children - when I left inpatient services I moved to aftercare and follow-up services for the women and children who had completed the program and continued to provide individual and family outpatient therapy. I've worked in nursing home and geriatric therapy providing transition therapy that included loss of independence; health changes, grief/loss and end of life therapy. I have provided couples therapy including retreats; workshops and individual couple therapy to aid in improving communication/relationship enhancement and when relationships are no longer compatible how to move forward and if children are involved how not to put them in the middle. I'm a Christian and enjoy providing services to those desiring spiritual therapy. I've contracted for the federal government and provided services to our military men and women from active duty, transitioning after war - adjusting to life back home based on their "new norm" due to things witnessed or experienced to those retired from service. It is my honor to serve a population that I hold in the highest regard and have the upmost respect and gratitude for their service.
I take an eclectic approach and use a variety of service modalities. I meet each client where they are and strive to provide unconditional support as we build trust and rapport for a therapeutic relationship. I believe that it is essential to have a healthy/trusting therapist/client relationship to be successful. My preferred therapeutic methods are: solution-focused; client-centered, motivational interviewing and cognitive therapy. I am a self described nerd. I loved learning and improving my therapeutic intervention strategies and am constantly reading/studying and attending workshops that allow me to be confident in my delivery and one of the best in the field. I started off from educational psychology position with my first masters degree. I desired to learn and understand varying perspectives and continued my education by completing a second masters degree in social work.
I love meeting people and I strive to provide unconditional positive regard - meeting you where you are at this moment and accepting you for who you are and moving forward at the pace you desire - starting where you feel most comfortable. I strive to make every client feel secure by proving a safe environment and I advocate for those I serve who at the present might be unsuccessful or lack the confidence needed to advocate for themselves. It is so rewarding to witness clients move forward, increase confidence, ability to communicate and learn to accept/love themselves.

I couldn't be happier with Levenia. She seems to really care, and has opened my eyes to certain aspects of my own being that I hadn't noticed myself. It makes such a difference to be able chat to someone without feeling judged.

I appreciate the openness she has as she listens to me and helped me feel heard and understood. I appreciate the format of being able to speak in a text message style to make it feel more relaxed. She also reached out to me to check in. It has been a good experience as I try to improve and sort through my problems.

Le is an amazing human being. She is caring, supportive, compassionate, and goes above and beyond to make sure I'm getting the help I need. She's also a professional - she reads me like a book, and I could tell she's doing this for years and years and has a big amount of experience. I'm so happy I met her, and I think everyone should a conversation with her at least once.

In only the first 15 minutes, we were able to address my issue and help it so much more then everything I have ever tried on my own. I am looking forward to see all the issues that we can fix together.
