My Story

My passion for counseling is derived from my desire to help teens and young adults reach their full potential and strive to become their best selves. This comes from an understanding that everyone has a unique story that has been affected by many factors, all of which can be used in the growth and development of that person. Leo believes that counseling is an avenue of approach that can help people connect, heal, and move forward in one's life.
Outside of counseling, I enjoy playing and creating tabletop board games, hanging out with friends and family, and enjoying the outdoors.

My Approach

Your therapeutic journey is all about you; therefore, my approach is focusing your needs. This is done through tell and retelling of your story. As our therapeutic relationship strengthens and we begin to identify areas in which you would like to grow, I will customize and incorporate theories based on goals that you set. Some of the theories I enjoy working out of include cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and solution focused therapy.

What You Can Expect

As stated above, your therapeutic journey is all about you! Your story is important. You can expect to be heard during each session. Furthermore, you will be unabashedly welcomed and invited into a safe space-a place where we are able to work together toward emotional and mental health and healing. Moreover, you will be treated with the highest of dignity and respect. After all, it is my intention that our time together will be a place where you feel free enough to personally grow and move pass/through any emotional/mental ruts along your life's journey.
