Sasha Diamond-Lenow, LCSW
“I approach therapy with a holistic framework and the understanding that each of us, no matter our age deserves to feel healthy and fulfilled. I have extensive experience with children, adolescents, teens, young adults, parents and families as well as those making transitions in their lives. I have spent my career working to ensure that all people regardless of age and social location have access to mental health support, find emotional and physical safety in self and in relationships, and find purpose and motivation in their lives. I aim to ensure that every client is seen as an individual and remains the expert of their experiences. I operate within social justice and anti-oppression frameworks and aim to be held accountable to the clients and communities I serve.”
