About Leonard

My Therapeutic Approach to Psychotherapy
I strive to bring a warm, compassionate, and attentive approach to the therapeutic relationship. I will do my best to work with you in realizing your therapeutic goals, however big or small. My clients often tell me that they feel at ease working with me and find my non-judgmental, calm approach to be very helpful in the process.


My Philosophy About Therapy
I believe that we all hold the wisdom to respond to life's challenges and that therapy is one way that we can get closer to that wisdom. I provide a mindfulness-based approach to assist you on the path to healing and awareness. We can create wholeness through evidence-based techniques and skills that can empower you on your journey to wellness. Together we can explore this journey in a safe, accepting, nurturing, and occasionally humorous way. Whether it is depression, anxiety, or a search for meaning in your life, we can use time-tested skills to create peace, joy, and a deeper understanding.
