ABOUT LEPA

Professional

I am a North Carolina Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My practice is based on the premise that what we think directly affects what we feel, which in turn effects how we act. The work we do together will focus very much on this process and personal goal attainment. Services will be provided in a safe, objective, respectful and non-judgmental way, in an office setting that is casual, comfortable and private.

My experience includes working with adults, children, adolescents, and families in numerous clinical settings (inpatient, residential, outpatient, community and day treatment programs) since 1996. I have worked for well-known behavioral health centers including CMC-Behavioral Health (Charlotte, NC), The Catawba Mental Health Center (Rock Hill, SC), The Willows at Amethyst (Charlotte, NC) and The Family Center (Charlotte, NC) now of Alexander’s Youth Network. Additionally, my work at area public/private schools, and colleges, has enhanced my ability to serve students with school-related concerns and academic learning challenges.

Personal

I am happily married, and the mother of three lovely children. I have called Charlotte, NC my home since 1994. My family originates from the former Yugoslavia and northeastern New Jersey. I grew up bi-culturally and travelled often. I believe that laughter is essential to survival, and very much enjoy incorporating humor in my daily interactions with people. I also enjoy travelling, watching movies, yoga, reading, and being outdoors.
