Leigh Ann's Perspcetive
You are always the expert in your life. Therefore, as a counselor, I will meet you where you are at and
walk along side of you. A sincere approach with genuine compassion is my utmost priority when working with groups or individuals. I practice from strength-based approaches, such as motivational interviewing
and cognitive behavioral therapy. I also believe that exploring past and present attachments with others,
can help understand our current behavioral patterns. Life is a journey, and it would be my privilege to be
a part of yours.
“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation,
a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” –Elisaeth Kubler-Ross
