Professional statement

As an integrative mental health practitioner, I believe healing and wellness are on a continuum and can truly blossom when we are in alignment with our mental, physical, spiritual, and emotional centers. As both a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, and Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach, my approach is holistic, integrative and patient-centered. I bring a compassionate and collaborative approach in working with adults who have a history of anxiety, burnout, insomnia, those living with a chronic disease, managing life transitions and those seeking their higher purpose. I specialize in and resonate with empaths and highly sensitive people to help them manage and navigate strategies for operating in a challenging world.

After earning her Master’s Degree in Social Work, Lenore went on to study holistic nutrition and lifestyle medicine at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, among further studies, to better understand the dynamic of mind-body-soul connection as well as how we heal. Lenore believes that all of the ways we nourish ourselves, through right nutrition, connection with others, movement and fitness, mindfulness, restful sleep, spirituality, as well as the right kind of therapeutic support, helps create a dynamic of healing and wholeness for the body and soul. I also offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I).

Using a combination of therapeutic approaches like Solution-focused therapy, Mindfulness-Based-Stress-Reduction, CBT, CBT for insomnia, Strength-based therapy, among others, Lenore empowers individuals to get unstuck, and cultivate a deeper sense of self-compassion, growth and healing.

Message to clients

What does wellness mean to you? How do you celebrate yourself? What does your self-messaging sound like? I know how powerful the therapeutic process can be and also how challenging it is to take the first step towards change. In my practice, I partner with my clients to create a sacred space for you to explore your patterns and beliefs, where you hold trauma in the body, what needs healing in you, and to help you become the most authentic version of yourself.
