About Andrew Leonard
Therapy is often about working to close the gap between how you see yourself now and actualizing the person you aspire to be—your ideal-self. Often, unhealthy thought patterns, influenced by society and life experiences, contribute to our negative self-image, mood, feelings, and behaviors—and need to be identified and addressed if we want meaningful change. This is one of many areas where modalities such as CBT and ACT have been shown to be effective. At ARISE, we use these and other proven modalities to help you to identify your ideal-self, and then work with you to facilitate meaningful transformation towards its realization.
ARISE provides professional online individual psychotherapy services to adults seeking treatment and support for many areas of concern. It is our priority to ensure that you feel safe, valued, advocated for, and respected by a competent clinician. We will always work to identify and adhere to your individuality, unique needs, comfort level, and goals of treatment.
All of us go through difficulties in life when going it alone is simply asking too much of ourselves. ARISE knows it is challenging to reach out and allow yourself to be vulnerable, and will always respect and honor the courage it takes to come into therapy, and the responsibility we have in providing guidance and support along your journey of healing and growth
