"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power. Everyone wants to feel content and satisfied with themselves and the world they build around them but we struggle to achieve this goal because we have been hurt, disappointed, betrayed, or doubt ourselves. Find your personal power and change your world. I am with you.

Therapy is a partnership between you and your therapist. You work together to find the causes of problems, as well as create solutions and strategies for resolving them. You end up with peace of mind and the ability to reconnect with the people close to you.
Professional counselor since 1993. I worked as a public mental health clinician 1994-2000. Although grounded in counselling & psychotherapy methods (cognitive/behavioral, psychodynamic, family & brief therapy models), I specialize in cutting edge mind/body/energy/spirit modalities.
There are many reasons and circumstances that move us toward seeking out therapy, but taking that first step toward healing, for most clients, can be uncertain and often anxiety provoking. From the first meeting, I strive to create a genuinely warm, safe and collaborative space for clients.
All of you is welcome here- the parts of yourself you're struggling with and the parts that bring you joy. I care about who you are and who you'd like to become; diagnostic labels are not my focus. I offer a 'whole person', mind/body approach to psychotherapy. Free 15-minute consultation available.
I think therapy is about change--sometimes simply accepting yourself more, and sometimes changing your situation. Often it's changing how you deal with your situation and your emotions. I love to work with clients who really desire these types of positive change. For more: www.LeeEdwardsTherapy.com

One Step Beyond Counselling and Coaching
Pastoral Counsellor/TherapistVIEW PROFILE
Before I could help anyone else out I had to get my own head sorted out. No one has got it altogether in every aspect of their life. This attitude and approach has helped me and my clients over the years.
What I love about being a Psychotherapist is having the capacity to be a holder of hope. A holder of hope is a person who can join with you in the darkest hour, in the depths of despair and can see you as whole and joyful and can hold that vision even if you cannot see it for yourself yet.
I understand it can be difficult to reach out for help when individuals are feeling overwhelmed, confused and scared. I appreciate and affirm the courage it takes to enter a therapeutic setting and into a therapeutic relationship. It is important to honor each client’s individual journey towards happiness, wholeness and health. I strive to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space for all individuals and topics. I believe that providing a safe, judgement free environment is essential to address sensitive and personal issues. Creating a dynamic in which we collaborate together to establish goals for individuals is valuable. I believe that together we can discover effective possibilities that can provide insight towards resolutions. I am passionate about supporting individuals, children, families and couples throughout their journeys in counseling. I am here to help you identify and utilize your strengths, as well as develop new ones, to achieve your goals to reconnect with the joys of life. In addition to working with adults and couples, I also enjoy and have experience working with children and adolescents. I aim to develop a strong therapeutic relationship with my child and adolescent clients in order to provide a safe outlet for emotional expression, develop coping skills, improve mood, and strengthen self-esteem. I also enjoy and am trained in working with individuals and couples who are experiencing sexual concerns. I am a Certified Sex Therapist-Candidate through the Texas Sex Therapy Institute. Many people have trouble discussing sexual problems, sex therapy is designed to help you explore those sensitive issues and solutions can be created through the therapeutic process. My areas of interest, training and experience includes, infidelity, low sexual libido, vaginismus, erectile dysfunction, performance anxiety, addiction, out of control sexual behaviors, couple/martial conflicts, identity issues, kink, communication difficulties, grief, trauma, depression, anxiety. I enjoy working with everyone: monogamous, polyamorous, kink-identified and LGBTQIA+. If you find that you are struggling with asking for what you want and need in life, in your relationships and within yourself, the work we can do can help you grow and achieve your next level of happiness.
