Veleisha "Leisha" Benjamin


About Me

My name is Leisha Benjamin. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor with 20 plus years of experience working with a variety of mental health populations in various settings. I have a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology and a Bachelor's Degree in Rehabilitation Psychology. I'm challenged each day to incorporate the best clinical strategies I've come to learn and master over the years. I possess the ability to establish rapport quickly; build trust; interact and relate to individuals. I find that CBT-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; DBT-Dialectcal Behavioral Therapy (s) when engaging in therapy with clients are the most effective forms of clinical strategies, and are the two I most often use. These are evidenced based practice Treatment Modalities, and can be applied to a variety of issues such as depression; anxiety; stress management; PTSD etc. I've attended many workshops over the years to gain valuable knowledge and tools to utilize these Modalities effectively, and I'm confident in my ability to employ them. I also utilize Mindfulness techniques and strategies to address anxiety, stress and sleep issues.
