Our Counselors

Leanne Vaughan, LMHC #MH11902 || Dr. Rebecca Guagliardo, PsyD. #PY10050

Dr. Becky is a licensed psychologist, but you may also call her a relationship expert, play therapist, and evaluator. Dr. Becky helps individuals and families improve their relationships by utilizing individual or couples’ counseling. When counseling sessions involve children, Dr. Becky will often use play therapy. Play therapy is often utilized with children to honor the child’s unique developmental level by using the language of play as a platform to communicate feelings.

Relationships are often hard work. Many different age groups feel stuck and unable to navigate relationship turbulence. Individual and couples counseling is provided to address areas using a collaborative and supportive approach.  Lastly, Dr. Becky specializes in providing psychological testing for children and teenagers with learning disorders, AD/HD, giftedness, and psychological disorders. She provides a warm environment where you can safely identify and explore these issues that may be getting in the way of you enjoying a more rewarding home life, school, work life, or relationship.
