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.
