About Me

Hello. My name is LeNora Black and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Virginia with over 20 years of experience consistently developing as a therapist. I have partnered with clients addressing a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, anger management and substance abuse. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. My credentials as a Certified Prevention Specialist and Graduate Certificate in Play Therapy have allowed me opportunities to work in the school system, community services and clinical settings collaborating with children, adolescence and families. I understand how important making a safe space for children/adolescence to express their concerns and learn ways of coping is to their overall development. Using my expertise, I am honored to meet you where you are with your goal for this service.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. I am committed to creating a collaborative interaction; and feelings of safety, confidentiality in our therapeutic relationship. My approach is eclectic, deriving ideas mainly from theories such as child centered, mindfulness and various play therapy approaches. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Very attentive, insightful, and adept at catching my blind spots. I benefit tremendously from working with LeNora and look forward to continuing to grow with her. So grateful to her and teen counseling.

My son feels very understood and listened to in his sessions with LeNora Black. He says she is a “wise woman” who has helped him to understand his struggles more deeply. He has benefitted a lot already from their sessions.
