Robert Leeburg

Back to Therapists

Currently, Robert specializes in working with members of L.A.’s large and diverse LGBTQ community. Robert and his clients address issues that arise in their personal lives and explore the challenges they face in the struggle for greater acceptance and understanding from society, neighbors, colleagues, and family. Together, they work to empower, communicate, and connect. His other specific areas of expertise include grief and loss, working with survivors of human trafficking, DCFS cases, issues of intimacy and sexuality, and couples counseling.

His therapeutic modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Art Therapy, Relational Therapy, and Mindfulness, among others.

Robert's extensive background in the arts as a cartoonist, performer, and filmmaker has inspired much of his work with clients, guiding them toward greater self-expression and empowerment. He has found these approaches especially useful with children and adults who face challenges or life circumstances that can interfere with self-reflection and effective communication. As Executive Director of the Los Angeles Media & Education Center (LAMEC), he used programs in theater, music, and filmmaking to support participants in telling their stories and finding their voices. Most importantly, they learned how to build bridges and create a greater understanding of each other.

When you work with Robert as a therapist, his goal is to create an environment that is safe, supportive, and respectful of diversity. His approach is individualized and holistic.
