Leonie Fernando, LCSW
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am an experienced therapist dedicated to helping adults and teens who have experienced trauma or experiencing depression and anxiety.
I specialize in the treatment of all types of trauma and Post-traumatic stress disorder. I also specialize in issues of depression and anxiety. I believe that since every human being is unique, responses to human experiences are also unique. Loss and trauma or issues of depression and anxiety may be negatively affecting your emotional, mental, physical and relationship health.
I am eclectic in my approach and so we will use a blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, psycho-education and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), guided by what will work most effectively for you.
Together we will mutually develop goals for therapy and work in a safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere. Our work together will honor who you are as a human being and your responses to your experiences that have led you to seek help.
