About Andrea Leonardi, LCSW-S

We’re in this together!

I believe the therapeutic relationship involves respectful collaboration to achieve the happier and healthier version of you. Though we all go through our individual journey to heal, I find that I am happy to meet you where you are at and provide the support and safety you need to address the issues you feel weigh you down. It can be overwhelming to know where to start so where you need guidance, that’s when I step in and give you options and encouragement to decide the best path for you.

I work with adults, couples, and expecting/new parents in person or via telehealth. My modalities include CBT, DBT skills, Gottman Method Couples Therapy, EFT and Motivational Interviewing. I am also EMDR certified and provide it for a range of issues including but not limited to depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and couples. I am also a consultant in training for professionals interested in becoming certified in EMDR. I am trained in perinatal mental health and am on the path to be certified to offer support to expecting parents as well as those dealing with postpartum. I love working with different individuals and am proud to provide a judgment free zone.

Beginnings and Ongoings

I was born and raised in El Paso, TX. In 2014, I received my bachelor’s degree at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX and from there, made my way to Phoenix where I obtained my Master of Social Work degree in 2017. I begun my career as an LMSW at a recovery center for seriously mentally ill adults and transition to the outpatient setting once I got my LCSW in 2020.

Outside the office, I love reading a good book, swimming, baking and time with friends and family. Traveling is good for the soul and I plan a few trips a year! You can also find me munching on takis and yasso ice cream bars. I am a new mom to a beautiful girl and her Dad and I love watching her grow into a little person. Between her and our three cats, each day is an adventure.

I am excited to work with you, and I will always be direct and honest with you about what to expect!
