Specializing In Helping Children, Adolescents, Couples & Families
FIND FREEDOM, ACCEPTANCE AND JOY
Everyone has something. Every family has something – something we struggle with, hoping it will magically disappear, fix itself, or that we can throw away.
We try stuffing away feelings of frustration, anxiety, anger, guilt, sadness, disappointment, fear, regret, or shame… Until they resurface again.
No matter what you or your family’s “something” is, identification and acknowledgement is the first step in beginning a personalized journey of discovery, understanding, awareness, and lastly, acceptance.
Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
Whether I am working with frantic parents of a newborn, a toddler who has elected himself boss of the home, a child who has continues to disobey at school, an adolescent believing his parents are stupid, a broken-hearted college girl, a couple dealing with infidelity, or a family who has experienced the death of a child, I make a practice to meet my patients where they are emotionally.
I want each person I work with to know they do have a voice, and by becoming accountable, they can change their lives for the better.
Our Unique Approach
My patients describe me as having an “out-of-the-box” approach with kids as well as adults. My office is purposefully designed to not be the typical clinical setting. Having no desire for a standard office setting, I created instead an atmosphere of uniqueness, comfort, and safety.
My support team includes a 39-pound Sulcata Tortoise, our Golden Retriever therapy dog and chicks!

People don’t enter marriages planning to divorce. Divorce is the result of a lack of knowledge and preparation for marriage and the failure to commit to learning the skills of working together as a team in creating a successful intimate relationship. -Becky Lennox 1. Men Skip the Grieving Process Divorce sucks for everyone involved, period. […]
The Secret Weapons I know. Our “team” here at Becky Lennox Counseling is not the norm. The “team” is not what most would expect to see when going to a counseling session. This unique team consists of: Dexter (11-year-old golden retriever), Woody (9-year-old 52-pound sulcate tortoise), and Donald, Sheep, and Duck, three 10-week-old chicks. “Why […]
We know kids learn by doing (hands -on learning). As adults, I am not sure it ever enters our mind that a silly art activity can serve as a tool for growth we too can gain by experiential (art) therapy. Oh, let me guess…”we are adults now”. We are smart, educated, mature, knowledgeable, sophisticated, established, […]
When told the news, I instantly felt that all too familiar gut feeling…. The one that immediately takes you to a familiar place. There I was again, mentally scanning the internal post office boxes created in my mind. My precious dad was a commercial airline pilot. I once asked him, “Daddy, how do you know […]
Dillon – Age 15 Dillon’s dream as a very young child was “to be a famous soccer player when I grow up”. Attending soccer camps, practices, and games, his life was geared around soccer from the time he was big enough to kick a ball. He was on select soccer teams and his parents supported […]
Katie – Age 6 – Divorce I was introduced to Katie when she was 6 years old. Katie was a precious, well mannered, and polite little girl who loved creating art. Although quiet and reserved at first, Katie progressively allowed me to observe the depth of the emotional pain she was feeling through her artwork. […]
Several years ago, I received a phone call from the emergency room around 3:00 am. A nurse politely introduced herself and told me she had a 17-year-old male patient who had overdosed on heroin, been placed on life support, and transferred to the Intensive Care Unit. My business card was folded up and found in […]
I sat looking at Alli (a junior in college) in my office, on my couch, pretty much in fetal position- sobbing. She was desperately trying to make sense out of the guy she had “slept with three times” who, now, was “acting like I don’t exist”. Ali beat this guy up verbally. Described him as […]
Becky has an exceptional way of getting kids to communicate in some form of art, then handing it to parents like myself who don’t seem to realize the world they are creating for their children.
Becky literally saved our son from growing up and becoming just like me and my mother. She brought organization and realness to my marriage. She had the guts to meet me head on and not allow me to repeat the behaviors my mother had taught me. Our family is enterally grateful to what we see as an angel who came to our home.
Becky tamed the parents. Her input, guidance, and hands on approach literally changed our families and the extended family involved. Becky addressed issues between the parents, parenting styles, atomicity between the family, and the deep seeded guilt harbored by us all. Becky gave us permission to parent and that parenting wasn’t about us but about our child.
Becky was nothing like I expected nor was she like the other three counselors we had seen before. She addressed our marriage and the mess we created upon our first meeting. I remember saying, “What? I thought we were here for our defiant disobedient kid, not us!”
