I am a Native Texan and proud of it! :-), but I do also love to travel and explore the world beyond these Texas borders as often as possible. It was while studying abroad in London to complete my degree at Texas Wesleyan University-Fort Worth that I learned how important it was to concentrate on hope; to look at possibilities not back at problems.
There’s nothing we can do about the past, but we can change what we’re doing now, and that also affects our future. That Solution Focused-based approach completely changed my view about mental health. There are two things that I adore in life: meeting new people and laughter. I don't think I could live without either. I love connecting with people. The power of connection starts at infancy. I can honestly say, I was served an extra dose of it. I have never met a stranger and never intend to. I'm sure this has something to do with my lifelong desire to be a therapist.
I have been seeing Paula for almost a year now. Since the very beginning she has always made me feel very comfortable and supported. She has helped me work through so many personal matters and has helped me to improve my relationship with others as well as with myself. She is very funny, gentle, and personable in the way that she speaks to me but she also isn’t afraid to tell me what I need to hear. She has empowered me to improve my life in so many different ways and has helped me realize my own strength. My life is different in SO many ways from when I began seeing her and she has helped me get to a point in life I have always wished I could be at. I look forward to speaking to her every week and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone in need of a therapist!!

Paula Lenard is an phenomenal counselor. I had my reserves about going to counseling, talking to someone I didn't know about so much and I'm glad I didn't let it stop me. She has truly helped me see me and life through a fresh pair of lenses and I am internally grateful. I have recommended her to everyone I come in contact with that is ensure. Mrs.Lenard is definitely the way to go. I highly recommend her as a counselor and I'm still a client so my work continues.

After going through a very rough time, I decided to go see a therapist which I had never seen before. Paula is so easy to talk to. She is caring, great listener and gives me guidance yet points out the things I need to work on. I feel so comfortable talking to her. Her office is another piece of art. As soon I walk into her office, it’s so cozy and comfortable and being surrounded by the beautiful plants is just what you need to breath.

Wow, where do I start. She is such a beautiful soul. Talking with her just makes me feel like life WILL get better. I can literally walk into her office broken into pieces and she manages to put me back together during that hour visit. I would recommend anyone and everyone to go see her. I’m very thankful to have cross paths with this wonderful woman.

I started seeing Paula in March when I was going through one of those down times in life that we all go through sometimes. I cannot express how grateful I am for all of her advice and encouragement. I feel like I am talking to a friend when I meet with her-a friend with an unbiased opinion who gives great advice. I have been to several other counselors but never really wanted to go back. Paula is the first counselor I felt I got a real benefit from seeing. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for someone to talk to. We all need it sometimes :)

I’m glad I made the decision to go see her. I won’t say doing the work is easy, but she is SO easy to talk to and so personable that it makes the hard time/hard subjects not so uncomfortable. Do yourself a favor and go see her! One time and you’ll want to keep going back.

Paula is the absolute best. I feel so comfortable while talking with her. If you are looking for a therapist I highly recommend her as she is super professional and very compassionate.

I went into my first counseling session feeling a little uneasy and doubtful. I had always been that way at the thought of counseling. But Paula made it quite comfortable and easy for me. It quickly became easy to talk with her about everything. She even gave me advice and pointers on how to strengthen my communication skills for at work. It's been liberating to have someone to go to and discuss all of these things that I have felt I needed to bottle up for quite some time. I very much recommend you give her a consideration if you are looking for counseling.

Very talented woman. I’ve worked with a lot of counselors/therapists but Paula is by far the best. Able to make a lot of progress in a short amount of time. I leave each session feeling a weight off my shoulders and tools to move forward. I would highly recommend Paula!
Ashley Trabon, Google My Business
Paula is so amazing! She is great at being honest and direct but she comes from a very caring place. She has changed my life. The only downside for me...not finding her sooner! Thank you, Paula...for EVERYTHING!

I've had several therapists throughout my life for depression/anxiety, but my experience with Paula has been the most effective and rewarding! She offers a great balance between sincere listening and constructive direction. She is an absolute joy to be around and the highlight of my month! I always leave her office with a plan that I'm excited to execute. I've made measurable strides in how I cope with work stress and relationship building-with myself and others. There is a depth to Paula's counseling that is difficult to find anywhere else! Highly, highly recommend.

My first time my partner and I did counseling with Paula, I was very nervous and skeptical. I wasn’t sure if I would be comfortable enough to open up to a complete stranger and discuss my most personal, deepest thoughts and emotions. Paula was very direct, and “LISTENED” she made great key points and had great communication skills that we had never thought of. She let us take the lead as in the direction of the conversation yet still managed to guide us to our real issues within ourselves and not each other. She is very flexible and works around our schedule which makes it even better. We didn’t feel rushed or bamboozled. We both left feeling as if we’re hope.

I have never seen anyone for counseling before so needless to say I was a little apprehensive to call, but i'm glad I did. Ms. Paula was very professional, caring, and compassionate.
