Leigh LaSota, MA Licensed Professional Counselor
Hello! My name is Leigh LaSota, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I earned my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Wheaton College. Through my training and work since then, I have been able to work with individuals from a range of ages, backgrounds, and cultures. I particularly enjoy working with adolescents and young adults, as they work through anxiety, depression, life transitions, self-esteem, or relational issues. I also have a passion for incorporating creativity into the counseling process through avenues such as art and play therapy.
I understand how difficult it can be to pursue counseling, and I respect and admire the courage it takes to do so. I strive to create a safe, compassionate environment in which clients are empowered to learn about themselves in new ways, and to discover and use their own strengths to reach their goals. As a Christian, I also value the role that faith can play in this process, always as directed by my clients.
It would be a privilege to hear your story, and to walk alongside you during this season of your life. I look forward to working with you!
