Hi! I',m Johanna, a first-gen, Latina, bilingual thera-mom and I specialize in working with women in the early seasons of the motherhood and adulthood. These seasons can be heavy and beautiful, joyous and anxiety-provoking, exciting and stressful. Unfortunately, many of us weren't taught how to navigate these emotions and instead learned to "just push through, push it down and be strong." I am here to remind you that there is strength in facing your real feelings and asking for help. In therapy, I can help you process the emotions that are part of the journey and help you learn skills to cope with the stress so that you can show up grounded in what matters most to you, with self-compassion and grace because you are human and perfection is a myth. I can provide you a safe space to be yourself and put down everything you're carrying so that you can identify what you need to heal to break cycles of anxiety, burnout and generational trauma, for yourself and your kids. There is power and courage in healing and I would love to join you on this journey. If you want to learn more about me & my approach, check out my website www.jleebre.com - If you are interested in services, please set up a consultation call first to ensure we are a good fit. If an intake is scheduled without a consultation call first, I will reach out to hold that consultation prior. Best!

Life is full of up’s and down’s. It is unpredictable and full of surprises; it can be a life event, trauma, or something telling us to figure out what is happening and to explore what are the most meaningful things in our life. Just like these events, our responses to them are unique to us. My role as a therapist is to help you through your unique journey of change, growth, and healing. We join together as a team to explore and work through barriers that might be holding you back. We'll use a whole-self approach and attune you to the needs of your mind, body and soul. I am fluent in Spanish. I work with: adults and older adults. Individual or couples.
