LEIGHA ORTEGO, LCSW-S
Clinician at Ethos Wellness Lovett
Leigha Ortego is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker-Supervisor who specializes in working with young adults, adolescents, parents and families. She is passionate about helping to expose behavioral and thought patterns that are no longer serving her clients in order to help them become the best versions of themselves. With a relaxed and nonjudgmental approach, Leigha welcomes clients into a collaborative journey of healing and hope, using an eclectic combination of evidence-based treatment models to target the specific needs and goals of each individual.
With over 10 years of experience in the field of social work, Leigha has gained a broad base of knowledge and skills that she is continually working to expand. She has spent the majority of her career providing support to those struggling with anxiety, depression, self doubt, adjustment, life transitions or challenges, trauma, grief, disordered eating behaviors, addiction, sexuality, relationship difficulties or family dysfunctions.
To Leigha, therapy is about gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and learning to build on your strengths. It is important to find trust, safety and compassion with one’s therapist in order to feel supported enough to do the necessary work. Her primary goal is to provide that space for her clients.
