About Jacob Leonardi, LMSW

There is strength and resilience in everyone…

and I am here to help you acknowledge yours! It has always been my passion to make a positive impact in the lives of others. I strive to always provide a validating and empowering environment. This allows me to establish a sound therapeutic bond with my clients so I can provide unconditional support in the stressful moments.

My practice focus is with teens age 13+, young adults, adults in middle age, and couples. I treat anxiety, depression, substance use, self-esteem, chronic pain, sleep disturbances, trauma, OCD, phobias, and relational dysfunction through a range of modalities. These include motivational interviewing (MI), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), CBT for insomnia (CBT-I), CBT for chronic pain (CBT-CP), Exposure & Response Prevention (ERP), and EMDR. I emphasize focus on both mental and physical health in order to create a strong foundation for growth.

A Maricopa Mentor

I was born and raised in Arizona in a smaller town called Waddell, just northwest of Phoenix. I graduated from Arizona State with both my Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Master of Social Work. After obtaining licensure as an LMSW, I worked with a range of individuals in a variety of settings, from outpatient to residential treatment. In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, participating in sports like soccer and golf, and spending quality time with my wife and our family and friends.

I’m committed to being a supportive guide and partner as you grow through your struggles and emerge sturdy and inspired for what is yet to come!
