About me

Do you struggle with codependency or are a people pleaser? Do you have an Anxious attachment style and struggle with relationships? Do you tend to have racing thoughts or have trouble relaxing? I will work with you to be happy, calm, confident, and rock your own life!

**** I offer audio only sessions, so I am unable to work with suicidal thoughts/ self harm/ previous psychiatric hospitalizations. *AND* if you are choosing my profile, kindly send a msg before booking a session to see if I'm taking new clients, as this fluctuates. *****

I’ll help you be empowered by being the BEST version of yourself. We will work together to develop strong, healthy boundaries and rock your life. I offer audio live sessions and messaging. I love helping those who want to step away from societal expectations of what they ‘should be’ doing and take power back to be their authentic self. LGTBQIA2S+ Clients say they appreciate my energy, kindness and straight forward insight.

DISCLAIMER: * There are areas I do not work with, so please read carefully- 1) Those with pending/open divorce & custody cases; 2) Suicidal thoughts/self-harm/psychiatric hospitalizations; 3) I don't provide letters/evals, like for work/FMLA, disability; 4) Those with other types of open/pending legal cases, like injury, workman comp, MVA, etc.

Dr. Lechnyr has been so helpful to me! She is a great listener, and I appreciate that she is clearly very knowledgeable in her field. She helps direct me toward tools and habits that will be helpful while giving me plenty of time to process my thoughts and feelings. It's the best therapy experience I've ever had!

Dr Lechnyr has been helping me through some really difficult stuff. I couldn’t have asked for a better match. She’s so easy to talk to and I feel heard. She is there for me as a sounding board as I prepare to come out to my ultra religious family as poly, and validates my feelings. I couldn’t recommend a therapist more highly than her. Poly folx are often judged by therapists and I’ve never felt even the slightest judgement from her. I’ve worked with a lot of therapists and she’s the best I’ve had!

So far, Dr. Lechnyr has been professional, helpful and given me tools I have not had in the past. She listens and challenges me to understand. Great therapist.

Dr. Lechnyr has been an amazing therapist. She has been extremely patient with me, has listened to what I have to say, but also gives me another way to look at things. She’s been very encouraging and has helped me give myself some grace when I am being hard on myself.
