Lea Anne Turner

Supervised by Martha Brock, LPC-S, LMFT-S
Richardson

Lea Anne graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in communication with a minor in psychology. She worked as a full-time missionary with Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) for 10 years which has uniquely equipped her to walk alongside others through life and exploring how faith is a part of the journey. After some time as a stay at home mom, Lea Anne earned a master’s degree in biblical counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary. She has pursued additional training and certifications in marriage, parenting, grief, and Christian leadership/ministry issues. She is also trained in spiritual practices designed to bring healing and freedom that can be a part of the counseling process.

Lea Anne describes the times when we feel parched, stuck, exhausted, and hopeless as the desert. Flourishing is scarce and we long for more. Change can feel out of reach. As we all experience the effects of brokenness in our world, situations in life bring suffering and confusion. The choices of others impact us in hurtful ways, and our own weakness and failures can be overwhelming. Counseling can be a context for healing and restoration in these desert places as we make changes in our actions, thoughts, beliefs, and desires. Lea Anne would love to provide a safe space for you to wrestle with pain, questions, anxiety, depression, strongholds, conflicts, grief, or anger.

Lea Anne’s life and practice are defined by Christ’s love for her and how He longs to bring restoration to people. However, she does not impose her beliefs, and she appreciates working with people from various backgrounds and beliefs. She is also broken person who has needed restoration and would count it a privilege to come alongside you in your journey towards thriving and joy.

Outside the office, some of Lea Anne’s favorite things are going on hikes with her family, being in nature, cooking, and anything that has to do with Italy!
