Chosen PLLC-Staff-Dr. Leatrice Brooks
"I view therapy as a time to heal, grow, change, discover, and build."

Dr. Leatrice R. Brooks, Ph.D., LP

Licensed Psychologist

Our lives do not always go the way we planned. We all experience challenges and struggles and find ourselves searching for relief. I view therapy as a time to heal, grow, change, discover, and build. I have worked with clients to address such concerns as self-esteem, depression, anxiety, family and relationship issues, parenting, work and career concerns, life transitions, stress and coping, and grief and loss to name a few.

With my background training in understanding how people develop and change across the lifespan, I have experience and enjoy working with various age groups from elementary age children to seniors. My style is interpersonally based and collaborative as I work together with you to reach your identified goals.

I am also a professional speaker and executive coach. More information on working with me in that capacity can be found on my speaking website.
