I am a Licensed Mental Health & Marriage and Family Therapist, and have worked with children and families for over 7 years in multiple settings, such as in their homes, schools, daycare, court systems, and other environments. As a therapist I believe that all children have the ability to learn and develop good coping and behavioral skills. Using positive reinforcement, early intervention techniques and utilizing play as a means to learn, we work towards empowering children and their families.
I have worked with at risk youth, in multiple settings and have helped them overcome many hurdles. Helping overcome developmental delays,academic issues, social struggles, anxieties, depression, peer pressure, insecurities and most importantly assisting strengthen the child/parent relationship.
I have been described as patient and compassionate yet direct. I approach most therapy sessions from a solution focused or cognitive behavioral, positive reinforcement way and meeting the client where they are at. I allow the client's need to direct how our session goes. With adolescents especially there has to be a will to cooperate. I aim to help the client see their role in the situation they are in and ultimately having them understand they have the power to change their current situation.
I look forward to working with you,

Carolina is wonderful. She has listened to me and provided me with good advice.
My daughter has benefited greatly from this counselor. Carolina Leon always had patience and was a great listener, she helped my daughter feel understood! Within the meetings they had, My daughter learned to manage and balance out her overwhelming feelings of anxiety and such by herself. Overall an amazing counselor
Great experience with Carolina, also if you are looking for an English/Spanish counselor. She gives good feedback and gives you different options to work with.
She is great!
She is very professional
Miss Leon gives me feedback that is honest and accurate. She doesn’t give any fluffy feedback to make me feel good or anything like that. That doesn’t mean that I like the feedback but it doesn’t mean that it’s useful and helpful in my relationship. I would definitely recommend her to a friend and she is a valuable asset so far we’ve only worked a few times together and I plan on incorporating her in my relationship and my problems for years to come

Carolina was really great, I was able to talk to her about my career and she was available to talk to me when I was having a bad day. She gave me great advice and validated my feelings and helped me work through them. I didn’t feel alone and it was great having someone to talk to. She’s amazing.
