Hey folks!I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor, Mental Health Service Provider in Tennessee. My passion for therapy began after realizing I was helping many clients with the similar concerns related to identity confusion, limited self-awareness, and low self-confidence. I realized I could reach out to more people using different forums and saw an opportunity to help more people than I could ever hope to see in individual sessions face to face. There just aren’t enough hours in the week! My therapy style is warm, supportive, interactive, validating, and empowering. I utilize a client-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy approach with a solution focused perspective, and have training and extensive experience in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT), and rational emotive behavioral therapy ( REBT) As a conscientious therapist it is important to me to provide a safe, non-judgmental, therapeutic environment, and treat everyone with respect, compassion, and unconditional positive regard. I offer a style and approach that best fits the needs of each individual, and partner with each individual to create a treatment plan with specific goals and objectives that meet specific needs. Life is pretty complex and sometimes presents us with challenges that require support and therapeutic interventions to achieve balance and overall wellness. Congratulations to you for your courage, and on your decision to seek empowerment and enhance your current emotional well-being.

My name is Leslie Kay and I’m a professional counselor, licensed in the state of Tennessee. I began serving in the mental health field in 2010, and in 2014 received my MS in clinical mental health counseling. I’ve worked in various clinical settings, including in a community mental health clinic, a rehabilitative correctional facility, an inpatient addiction recovery center, and most recently on a university campus. I have experience helping clients with stress and anxiety, depression, motivational and quality-of-life concerns, attachment wounds, relationship issues, self-esteem and self-confidence, spiritual abuse, developmental/stage-of-life concerns, spiritual/meaning-of-life concerns, identity development and addiction recovery. I would describe my integrated approach to counseling as being strengths-based and client-centered in nature; including elements of motivational enhancement, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and psychodynamic and attachment theory; and being informed by neurobiology. While I do not have the expertise to describe myself as trauma-focused, I would say that I am trauma-informed, in that I am mindful of the behavioral and neurological impact of developmental trauma. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step toward seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.

I offer a supportive non-judgmental environment to help people address a wide variety of issues including symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship struggles. I specialize in marriage, couple, and family counseling, but I also do a lot of work with individual clients. When the pandemic began, I was very concerned that the online format would not be as beneficial for people, but that has not been the case. This is especially true for individual clients. I do my best to make it feel like we are sitting in a room together and having a conversation that just happens to be working on any issues people are struggling with. I have additional extensive training and experience working with teenagers with behavioral issues and their families. Teenage behavioral problems I have experience with include, but are not limited to, defiance, disrespect, self-esteem, school difficulties, criminal and problem sexual behaviors. These can be challenging behaviors for parents to understand and manage. I offer support and guidance for parents to address them and help their children grow into confident, healthy, happy adults. I approach each therapeutic relationship as a team with my clients. I never dictate what someone needs to work on. My only goal is to help clients reach their own personal goals and that is different for every single client. I have been doing this work for over 20 years and I look forward to helping you reach YOUR goals!

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Lewisburg counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Lewisburg.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Lewisburg licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Lewisburg, Tennessee can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you.
