About Me

Hello and welcome! You did it! You are taking important steps to becoming the best version of yourself! My name is Kaleesha Bent and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). I have provided therapeutic services for the past 8 years. I have worked with clients with an array of concerns to include depression, anxiety, family conflict, parenting issues, mild relationship difficulties, trauma/abuse, and self-image/self-esteem issues.

While addressing mental health needs is becoming more and more embraced in our communities, it still carries a pervasive stereotype. It takes great courage to come to this step to engage in therapy, and that is to be celebrated. Working with individuals and families are my passion, as it allows me the humbling opportunity to shine a light on a better and more effective way to thrive in relationships. The way in which I accomplish this best is by engulfing a warm, interactive, and non-judgmental approach. My therapeutic approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, emotion-focused, family systems, existential, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, narrative, solution-focused, and trauma-focused. As your therapist, I will align myself with your goals and tailor your treatment plan to support that.

I look forward to working with you as you take this conscious step to becoming the best version of yourself. I'll see you on the other side!
