Meet Sierra Leblanc

What would your clients and colleagues say is your therapist superpower?

I believe my clients would say my ability to provide insight and notice patterns. I take pride in giving clients the “why” behind their choices and thoughts. I believe this leads to noticeable change when humans understand why they are doing something and will be more equip to change.
 

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

I always knew I wanted to be a therapist. In order to afford Graduate School I worked in finance and benefits consulting. I love helping guide clients to become who they want to be and being patient during the process.
 

Is there an example from your daily life where you practice what you preach?

The biggest one would be that I am active in my own therapy. That means I am reminded that psychodynamic work is difficult and worth the investment. It helps me remain patient, empathetic and non-judgemental.
 

How do you approach the stigma surrounding mental health and therapy?

I approach the stigma around mental health and therapy with kindness. I find that from a kind stance, I am more able to be patient and curious and help work to provide a new perspective.

Therapy Styles

Short Term (Solution-focused, etc.) 
Ideal for those who are coming in with a specific problem they’d like to address and gain clarity on. Typically, short term therapies are present focused and do not dive deep into your past.

Structured
Structured therapies are goal and progress oriented. Therapists may incorporate psychoeducation and a specific “curriculum.” In order to stay on track, therapists may provide worksheets and homework.

Insight-oriented (Psychodynamic, Existential, etc.) 
Exploring the past and making connections to present issues can help clients gain insight. Getting to the root of the issue and finding deeper self-awareness can help with long-term change.

Non-directive (Humanistic, Person-centered, etc.)
Going with the flow and seeing where it leads.

Behavioral (CBT, DBT, etc.)
Focuses on changing potentially unhealthy or self-destructive behaviors by addressing problematic thought patterns and specific providing coping skills.

Trauma Focused (EMDR, TF-CBT, etc.)
Recognizing the connection between trauma experiences and your emotional and behavioral responses, trauma focused therapy seeks to help you heal from traumas.
