LEONORE SULLIVAN CASH, M.A., MFT
Since 1997, Leonore has been helping adults and adolescents in individual treatment at La Vie, as well as offering intensive couples therapy. She is currently a Clinical Supervisor to La Vie’s Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Interns.
Leonore summarizes her integrative approach to treatment as follows:
Some therapeutic orientations seek to remove symptoms and eradicate so-called problems. But I have developed a deep respect for symptoms as messengers. Whether working with depression or anxiety, marital distress, chronic pain and illness, or spiritual suffering, I believe that our symptoms testify to something in us that needs our listening and our care. Psychotherapy provides a focused opportunity for both the client and the therapist to honor the whole person in his or her desire for a life of depth, connection, joy and meaning. In other words…life abundant!
Leonore also has a rich background in both private and public sectors as a speaker, trainer and consultant for personal and professional transformation. With thirteen years leading organizational change in Fortune 250 companies, she continues to design and deliver workshops to help businesses, churches and schools develop creative resources for leadership. She offers a number of talks and workshops, including the popular “Living Single in A Couple’s World.”
Leonore received her Bachelor of Arts in English from UCLA, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and awarded the Teague-Elliott Prize in Humanities. She completed her Master of Arts in Psychology at Chapman University. Currently, she is in her second year of specialized studies at the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis.
Leonore also serves as La Vie’s Director of Professional Development and Clinical Training.
