She/Her/HersLicensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, LCMHC Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Lena Azzam is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Raleigh, NC. Lena provides compassionate support for individuals facing racing thoughts and worries about the past, present, and future. Many of her clients find it challenging to set boundaries with others, and feel that their needs aren’t being met in their current relationship patterns. They have low self-esteem, which can lead to seemingly endless thought spirals or feelings of fear. They begin therapy because they want to center themselves on authenticity and confidence.
Lena helps young adults and adults to overcome their mental health challenges and to create effective change in their thoughts and feelings. Clients benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a thoughts-based therapy modality that emphasizes positive self-talk. She teaches clients how to use different coping strategies when they begin to feel overwhelmed, and gently encourages clients to examine their daily routines for ways to make healthy changes.
Lena earned a Master’s degree in Counseling Mental Health from William Paterson University. She strives to create a safe, nonjudgmental environment where clients feel comfortable talking openly about their ideas and feelings, finding joy and hope from their sessions.
