MY NAME IS PAULA LENARD
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.
When I'm not in the office other ways I love to spend my time is being with my family and friends. I have two sons: one adult, the other a pre-teen, but I can't deny the love for my "me" time, which usually consists of a Chai Tea Latte (with vanilla), an overstuffed chair, a blanket, and a good book.
