          "Here's what is truly at the heart of wholeheartedness:

   Worthy now, not if, not when we're worthy of love and belonging now.

              Right, this minute. As is."

Hi! My name is Jennifer Howard-Leonce, and I look forward to working with you on your mental health journey. I earned a master’s degree in Counseling from North Carolina Central University in 2009. I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (#8047) and a National Certified Counselor. I have worked as a middle school counselor for 12 years. I have advanced training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders from Postpartum Support International. As a doctoral student, I will be working with Robin to gain more clinical experience working with new moms struggling with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.


I use a balanced eclectic approach that includes (Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy). We can focus on the past and present to help achieve your goals. The therapeutic relationship we develop is the cornerstone of your wellness journey.

I am enthusiastic about working with clients to identify areas of strength and weakness, set goals that build upon strengths, and help clients make positive changes in their lives. Just know, you are not alone! We work together to identify barriers getting in the way of your healing while building your skills and confidence to live the life you deserve.

My rates per session are $40 not filed with insurance.
