Licensed Resident in Counseling

Lea Harkless

We travel the road with you, hope for the hopeful and hopeless! We pair authentic listening with the power of hope.

Hello, my name is Leanora! Please call me “Lea.” Let me help you take a journey and explore what is preventing you from moving forward. Please know that I am non-judgmental, reliable, compassionate, and committed to my clients. I adhere to ethical principles and treat people with dignity and respect. Whether it’s depression, anxiety, fear of change, stress, trauma, relationship issues, oppression, or excessive use of substances, I believe that by working together, we can develop a treatment plan centered on “you” and “your specific needs.”

During treatment, there are a variety of evidence-based treatment modalities of which we can choose from, and again this will be selected based on “your specific needs.” I have 10+ years of experience utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Person-Centered Therapy, Chemical dependency recovery skills and relapse prevention, Family Systems, and many more. I have 6 years combined working with adolescents and adults helping them overcome addiction issues by learning recovery skills and relapse prevention skills. I have also worked with individuals with mood disorders, PTSD, personality disorders, trauma, and many other mental health issues. I take a Holistic view when treating people (mind, body, and soul), as each aspect is intertwined with the other. I look forward to working alongside you!
