|Leatrice (Lea) Sherer, PhD
Doctorate in Clinical Psychology
Originally from the East coast, Lea has lived in Minnesota for the past 30 years. This means she is direct, but nice. She believes in a collaborative approach to therapy, with the therapist and client working together to decide what treatment approach will best support and empower each individual. She also takes into account the systemic contexts (family, culture) that influence her cilents' mental health and wellness. This includes today's political climate, which is a source of distress for many people, often isolating them from friends and family members. Lea believes that this is a legitimate topic to bring up in therapy.
