Scott J Leenan, MS, LPC, CRC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta
Scott believes that becoming human is a project, and our task is not so much to discover who we are, as to create ourselves. During therapy he works with clients to examine one's personal values, beliefs, goals, interests, attitude and perceptions of reality. Scott also assists his clients with stress management, personal growth, balance, career development, motivation and time management. Furthermore, he specializes in mood stabilization for individuals struggling with depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder. Scott enjoys working with a diverse clientele, but he has spent much of his career working with medical and business professionals, college students and the LGBT community.
During therapy, you will actively explore your mood, thoughts and behaviors in hopes of learning how to take control of life. Therapy is an organic and naturally unfolding process whereby the therapist and client collaborate to define the goals of therapy and the means of achieving those goals in an open, supportive, and confidential environment.
Observe anyone at the top of their game and the results will likely be the same; they've all had valuable guidance and direction. During coaching and therapy, we partner together in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires one to maximize their personal and professional potential.

Scott J Leenan's Groups

Social Skills Training Group

Assisting children in developing a positive self-image, express and manage their feelings, cope with stress and help them navigate relationship with peers and authority figures. Many studies have shown that shy children can become more outgoing and learn how to make more friends and aggressive children can learn self-control. There is no question that children with better social skills have a significant advantage in life. They not only experience the rewards of positive relationships, but they do better in school, have a better self-image, and are much more resilient as they face life's inevitable challenges.
