A Professional Athlete Helping Develop Meaningful Behavior Change
About Leandra Poole
My approach to therapy is a client-centered and focused-based practice. Clients are the experts in their lives and determine the direction and depth of their therapeutic process. Through a strengths-based and solutions-focused intervention, I utilize a variety of treatment modalities to guide clients in identifying strengths and developing treatment plans that accomplish their goals.
Using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I assist clients in exploring relationships in their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in order to aid in discovering dysfunctional thought patterns leading to self-destructive behaviors and beliefs.
Using Dialectical Behavior Therapy, I assist clients in developing skills in mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotion regulation with the goal of moving clients toward a life of health and freedom.
