Leonard Cogan LPC, CADC III
In 2009, Leonard received his Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology, Adult Emphasis, Community Counseling, and Certificate in Addiction Studies from Lewis & Clark College Graduate School of Education & Counseling. In 2014, he became a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor III. Leonard also has a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Portland State University and attended Reed College for General Studies. Prior to coming to Western, Leonard worked for five years in Residential and Outpatient substance abuse and co-occurring disorder treatment settings.
Leonard's practice style is about focusing on the client's needs and goals, and non-judgmentally meeting the clients where they are at. He likes to help and support clients building on their strengths and resources, and facilitating their creating of the life they envision. Leonard takes great joy in honoring the small steps of success his clients make while on the road to their larger goal. He uses motivational interviewing, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, mindfulness practices, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approaches.
I enjoy playing music, hiking, travel, cooking, yoga, and am a frequent visitor to Portland Japanese Garden.
