About Me

I've been working in this field for numerous years and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oklahoma. 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'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've worked individuals dealing with trauma including domestic violence and sexual assault in private sector and on college campuses - including writing a successful grant to reduce violence on college campuses.

I take an eclectic approach to providing services and treat everyone with dignity, respect and unconditional positive regard. I choose to meet you were you are in life and work with you to move forward in a healthy way. I use a variety of treatment approaches and do not stick to just one techniques as every client is unique and individual and so should the approach to provide services.

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 applaud you on taking this step to improve your life. I do not take the courage needed to seek assistance lightly and I look forward to making your acquaintance and helping you navigate the journey.

Written by D.A. on Sep 21, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Very attentive to listening to my needs, traumas and little details about my daily life. Her excellent memory skills with the way she retells my stories shows me that she recognizes me as a person (not a numbered client) while providing genuine responses and practical strategies to deal with my problems (minor) and issues (major). The best part is that she's really down to earth!

Levenia helps me to better cope with my life and helps to motivate me through life’s obstacles.

Written by L.I. on Sep 11, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Would definitely recommend working with her, she has helped me so much & makes me feel that I am not alone. She always checks up as well & her messages always lightens up my day. I’ll never forget what she has done for me, she has helped me grow & become better as a person.

I really like chatting with Levenia! We’ve only had a couple sessions so far but they’ve already made a positive difference in my life. I feel heard, understood, and respected. I can’t wait to continue counselling with her.

Written by A.M. on Sep 06, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Levenia is very warm and compassionate. She asks great leading and through-provoking questions. She is clearly knowledgeable and makes the discussion feel very comfortable.

I have had three sessions with Levenia. She listens to me with kindness and understanding. She brings my spirits up. And helps me accept my feelings and process them. So far she’s been amazing. Hope to keep working with her for even better changes in me.

Written by D.E. on Sep 02, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and bipolar disorder

Ms Carey'is intent is to listen, analyze and draw an accurate path to address the "real issue'. She is unafraid to question what doesn't make sense and will drill down until it does. I am a seasoned person; in age, in therapy and self awareness. It is a relief not to be the smartest person in the room. Ms Carey is an expert at what it is to be a "whole" person and will help you know what that means and how to get there. If you want someone to just go along with you, this is not the fit. If you want to improve your quality of life, gain insight, and be accountable, this is who will get you there. Thank you every day Le.

Le provides unrivalled support and instills confidence and direction in me via her insightful thought provoking feedback which I am very appreciative of. She is always available whenever needed and I feel respected and heard at all times. Thank you Le.

Written by A.N. on Aug 08, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

We had a couple of sessions already and she has helped me immensely to improve my relationship and to communicate better with my partner. We are getting to know each other. And so far so good!

Written by A.H. on Aug 01, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Levenia Carey is probably the best match for a counsellor I could get, because most of the problems I face today, she can relate to, which is great because when she gives me advice or responds to my problems, it’s based in wisdom.

Written by J.E. on Jul 31, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Levenia is really kind and thoughtful and helps you look at problems and situations from a different perspective and work through them. I've found the sessions very helpful.

Written by C.O. on Jul 02, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

As my first experience for counselling, I find Levenia to be very warm, balanced and concerned in her approach. She always conveys understanding, as well as giving you ample opportunity to offload without any feelings of judgement. I appreciate her work very much.

She is truly amazing. She has helped me rebuild my self worth and my confidence. It’s amazing to feel like I have someone in my corner. She respects me and treats me better than my mother does. She is a wonderful person and a wonderful therapist

Levenia is THE BEST! She really loves her job and I definitely can tell! She knows what she’s taking about and she is really client-centered. She texts me daily and just checks up on me when we aren’t in session. I recommend EVERYONE TO TAKE HER ! And she always gives solutions which is something I love! She is always willingly to hear from me. She’s a hard worker and she honestly needs A RAISE !!!!!

Levenia has been great since I started using betterhelp. She listens to me whenever I need her and is a voice of reason for me. Getting her as a counsellor is absolutely worth betterhelp.

I am super happy to have Levenia as my therapist. She really listens to me and consistently checks on me which shows that she deeply cares about her clients. I can’t see doing my therapy journey without her.

Written by L.I. on Jun 04, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and adhd

I have only had one phone appointment with her. She is really attentive with texts and encouragement. Looking forward to speaking with her soon.

It has been a great experience working with Levenia. I have been able to discuss my current situations and concerns freely without any judgment or pressure. She listens to me and helps me understand how and why things are happening...and how it can be improved. There is light at the end of the tunnel!

Written by K.A. on May 28, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and adhd

Le is truly wonderful. Even if she hasn’t heard from me in a few days (I’m awful at remembering) she sends me a message just to check in. She is a lovely human.

Written by L.I. on May 11, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and anger management

Levenia has been a great positive to me. She is great at listening and understanding what it is I need help with. She isn't judgemental of what I am saying and makes me feel at ease when I talk to her on my sessions.

Written by L.A. on May 02, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career difficulties

Levenia has been a Godsend in my life. I feel completely comfortable bringing my issues to her knowing she will take the time to not only offer me perspective and sound advice, but strategies as well and follow up. When I'm going through a particularly stressful time she checks in with me by sending me reminders throughout the week that I am not in this alone, and to lean on her if I need to. That really means a lot. I would definitely recommend scheduling with her!

It’s a Great program

Written by H.E. on Apr 25, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Levenia is a phenomenal person. Her heart and passion are always evident in our sessions and she always has ideas that are practical and useful for me. I have never tried counselling before and I was sceptical on whether it would be helpful for me but after a period of persistent dark and foggy days in my head I bit the bullet. I think I've got some way to go yet as I start to feel more and more comfortable looking inwards as well as sharing but Levenia makes this feel safe, secure and does so with a loving energy. I feel very fortunate to have been matched with Levenia and I am looking to the future with excitement for the first time in a long time! Thank you Le!

Levenia has been quite helpful even though we’ve only been speaking for a few weeks. She’s flexible and has a great way of getting through to me. I had reservations about using an app but our compatibility is great.

Written by I.N. on Apr 24, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

After changing two therapists, Levenia came as a blessing to me. She is very knowledgeable, professional, carrying, supportive. She offers many different ways to communicate and promptly response to all my messages. She understands exactly the main point of concern and digs to the bottom of the problem by asking the appropriate questions and leading to the solution. I would highly recommend Levenia to anyone who needs help.

Levenia makes therapy easy, lets me go at my own pace. Definitely has helped me a lot!

Levenia is caring, compassionate, insightful and empathetic. She always encourages contact when I'm struggling with processing through issues, and has helped direct my focus to my own wellness journey. She shares experiences and provokes thoughts to help me work through my challenges. I would recommend her in heartbeat, and so blessed to have her support.

I am grateful to have met Levenia on here. She brings the best out of me. I appreciate her advice as to how I can improve certain aspects in my life that are really challenging. I feel heard, understood, accepted. She goes straight to the point. She knows of what seems to be the best solutions for my situation. She follows up with me by texts between sessions which is encouraging and she gives good tips and guide sheets to apply as well. I have only met her 3 times on video calls and I can already say all of that!! I feel I have wasted my time with my previous therapist whom I'm sure was doing her best but was not the best fit for me. Thank you Levenia for just being who you are!!

Levenia and I just started but I have to say she is very professional and educated in her field. She’s knowledgeable about cognitive therapy and different techniques and approaches. She’s very responsive and listens to my concerns.
We started we messages back and forth and like I mentioned, her response is quick.
We moved to video calls and I instantly connected with her. She has a pleasant demeanor and I found her easy to talk to and open up to.
It was like talking to a friend I’ve know for years. I actually look forward to our next video call.
I don’t think I’ve ever been excited to go or do therapy in life.
I’m glad I found BetterHelp and found Levenia.

Ms. Levenia Carey is a very kind and supportive counselor. She always makes time to check on me and replies to my messages immediately. She has helped me a lot and had been continuously giving me advice and words of encouragement. I am so blessed to have her as my therapist!

Written by D.A. on Feb 25, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

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.

Written by C.H. on Feb 24, 2021 after counseling with Levenia for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, self esteem, career difficulties, compassion fatigue, and adhd

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.
