BIO

Image of Dr. Lehman The word "no" was always something that Dr. Lehman hated to hear, associating it with the end of creativity and possibilities. Long ago in her practice, she started thinking outside of the box. She respectfully challenged others to become fearless of stereotypes, cultural norms and other unspoken rules. This led to her becoming recognized as a change-agent in her field of psychology. Today, that little word, “no,” continues to drive her passion for finding ways to do what’s required for each and every client despite what others may sometimes say cannot be done.

With Dr. Lehman, you will be working with a highly skilled professional. She is personable, knowledgeable and discrete. She presents herself without a lot of hoopla and enjoys seeing the world through the eyes of an inquisitive child.

You will always hear the truth from her - she doesn't sugarcoat. Her approach is one of encouragement, for you to think about things in different ways in order to achieve the outcomes you need.

Dr. Lehman, from the beginning you were someone who I knew could help me… you have brought out a side of me that has been missing for some time. The confidence you showed in me was unbelievable. I can’t explain what you have done for me. I am truly grateful...

M.S.

…to this day I strongly believe that if it weren't for you I wouldn't have stayed clean!! Something about you kicked my butt into shape! Maybe it’s because I really liked you, wanted a connection, wanted to seek your approval. We had a bond, but at the same time you weren't afraid to call me out…
