I am pleased you have visited me today. My name is LeAnne and I am a licensed professional counselor. While my educational and career background span forensic psychology, legal studies, clinical and community psychology; I have a strong Christian background and have often prayed in session with clients who request Christian counseling as part of their therapeutic journey.
I am a Christian, however I have always counseled clients and families of diverse religious and faith affiliations. My focus is on the client and partnering with the client according to the beliefs and practices they value. It has been a blessing to work with people from varying backgrounds, as I am able to envelope my spiritual approach, expertise, skill and training into the therapeutic relationship that fits nicely with my clients needs and expectations.
Although I have worked with people suffering from anxiety, depression, stress, self image, life changes and family conflict, my area of expertise is in working with survivors of sexual abuse and other significant trauma experiences.
I am a compassionate and patient listener who considers the whole of you, what matters to you and what brought you to me. We work together as partners on your journey. At times I will be the teacher; however there will also be times I am the student learning from you what is important to you, how best to provide you with the best clinical care and spiritual support to cultivate your growth and strengths.
With me as your partner and guide; you will experience a therapeutic relationship that is caring, nurturing, encouraging, safe and both spiritually and clinically focused. Christianity can thrive in a psychotherapy, so feel free to express your needs, your fears, hopes and your losses using clinical coping skills you will learn, prayer, and reading of scripture if you so desire. It is your space and your time to grow without judgement.
Whether you faith base is Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Catholic, Jewish, Islamic, Hinduism or other faith base practice; you are welcomed here. Or perhaps you are at a crossroads and not sure where you are. I have the tools to guide you and my focus is on your needs clinically and spiritually.
Therapy is expected to be a safe place where you will feel supported authentically, objectively and skillfully. I offer you exactly that.
Again, welcome and I look forward to supporting you in your walk.

LeAnne has been very supportive of me. She has offered different steps that can be taken to help me and it’s been great to have a counselor who is able to address my concerns in an environment where I feel safe. She even points out things that I didn’t even think about that would help me. She’s great! I would highly recommend her!
LeAnne is a gifted counselor. She's the best I've ever worked with. I've gained confidence, practical tools I can implement, and amazing advice and info on boundaries, help for my inner child to grow up, understanding regarding grief, support for the work I'm doing with my limbic system, marriage and relationship help, and much more. I've worked with her for over 6 months and I'm happy to say I'm feeling empowered to be able to reduce my sessions. What better sign is there than that?! All of my life issues have certainly not disappeared, but I feel much more capable of managing and know that I have everything I need inside of me to handle whatever comes my way in life. I will continue to implement and work all I have learned. I'd recommend LeAnne to anyone. She's smart, gifted, and effective. She wants to help you and have you move forward in your life. She has a wealth of information to draw from and seems to be able to relate to and connect with anyone. Thank you LeAnne for coming alongside of me during some of the hardest parts of my life and helping me to feel supported, not alone, and giving me tools to self soothe, grow, draw boundaries, and see things more clearly.
Leanne is thoughtful and kind!
LeAnne has helped me so much and is truly a blessing!! Don’t know what I would do without her!
