Lenae Abbott believes that J.K. Rowling stated it perfectly in her novel, Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban, “Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” Lenae hopes to walk and talk with you on your journey to happiness by helping you find your light in life and what it means to you. She is a caring mental health provider with an empathetic feeling who strongly believes that everyone has their own individual journey in life. Lenae strives to meet clients where they are in their journey.
Her approach to therapy applies both cognitive behavioral and humanistic techniques to assist clients in overcoming obstacles and find the growth that is needed for their journey to happiness. She also uses a trauma-informed perspective in therapy and provides a safe place for clients to express their thoughts and feelings in order to be their true selves.
