My name is Marlene White Lenard and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. My private practice is located in the Los Angeles area, adjacent to Beverly Hills, mid-Wilshire and West Hollywood.
As a Therapist with considerable clinical as well as personal life experience, I am committed to the support and counseling of individuals and couples navigating difficult life transitions, such as tragedy, grief and loss, relocation, divorce, career changes, aging, and relationship issues. Also included within the scope of my practice is a specialization in counseling men, women and/or the adult chiildren of Late Divorce (often referred to as "Gray Divorce"). While the statistics on divorce after age 50 or after 25+ years of marriage are dramatically increasing, attention to the unique and complex issues that arise therefrom are sorely underaddressed. I endeavor to fill that void.
With Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Psychology from Antioch University, I have spent several years counseling a diverse population of individuals, couples, and families. During the four years I counseled at the Southern California Counseilng Center, I also facilitated Best Parenting Support Groups and worked with several individual students at a local high-school. In addition, I also have degrees in Business Administration from Boston Universtiy and Political Science from Los Angeles Valley College.
