Nancy Leonhardt

Licensed Professional Counselor Intern

I am excited to partner with you to unpack what may be getting in the way of your wellbeing. I love working with teens, individuals and families exploring connections between how we are raised (within our families and within the broader culture) and our expectations of others and ourselves.

My Approach

I am deeply relational. I build connections with others through sharing myself and offering my empathy.As a mental health practitioner with a background as an artist and arts-educator, I enjoy using a variety of creative methods to help clients explore their belief system, values, hopes and fears. Ultimately whether working with an individual or family system, I see counseling as a teaching relationship that should promote growth for all parties, myself included.

My Background

I hold master’s degrees in counseling from Lewis and Clark Graduate School of Education and Counseling (2018) and in teaching from Seattle University (1999). I have worked as a high school digital media educator for over twenty years in public and independent school settings. In these contexts I have served as an academic adviser and mentor for young people. I have extensive experience working with ADHD and other learning challenges including variable processing difficulties in school, research and therapeutic settings. I also have clinical expertise with process addiction, particularly related to compulsions around screens and gaming. I am a parent of a teenaged daughter whom we adopted at birth in an open adoption. I am committed to supporting anyone who is part of the adoptive triad (birthparent, adoptee, adoptive parent.) I served on the board of Northwest Adoptive Families Association and have presented on adoptive family issues at conferences.
