Martha Leesman, MS, LPC-S, CDWF, Licensed Professional Counselor in San Antonio
Being of service to others is my joy and privilege. My life is dedicated to inspiring and empowering you to become and express your full potential of special talents and gifts. If life has left you wounded, hurt, in pain or grieving and your life or relationships aren't working, I offer you: listening, acceptance, patience, support, insight, compassion, wisdom, love and intuition, acquired learning, guidance, years of experience, encouragement and support.
My goal is to guide you through the concerns that are causing challenges in your everyday life or affecting your personal peace of mind, as well as provide tools to work through other issues that may arise in the future. Concerns of special interest to me are anxiety, depression and insomnia.
We're all perfectly imperfect. We make mistakes. We learn as we go. Life isn't always black and white, right or wrong. Sometimes life just is. And when life just is, I offer support and empathy, as well as, presence through your journey.

Martha Leesman's Groups

Daring Way(tm)

The Daring Way(tm) is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, and organizations. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

More about this group

Rising Strong(tm)

Men and women who are fully engaged in life will have fall down moments that are often painful and require an intention to rise strong and get back into the game of life. This group will focus on developing resiliency so that you are fully equipped to re-engage in life with enthusiasm and joy. Based on the research and works of Brené Brown, Phd.
