Welcome to Thrive in Life Counseling and Therapy LLC


Dr. Mario Lehenbauer-Baum

Psychologist and Director of Thrive in Life Counseling and Therapy LLC 

Unlock your potential!

My name is Dr. Mario Lehenbauer-Baum; I am a Licensed Psychologist who is committed to providing a high-quality counseling and psychotherapy experience, strongly supported by scientific research. I am also the founder and director of Thrive in Life Counseling and Therapy LLC; we offer services for individuals (assessment/testing, counseling, psychotherapy) and mental health professionals (continuing education, consulting).

In my private practice, my clients welcome my analytical approach; my major strength is to help you dissect a problem – and then help you to figure out how to solve it, step by step. I see a major benefit of my work in supporting YOU to work toward goals, which can bring confidence, peace of mind and, ultimately, more meaning to your life. I focus on a wide range of issues (ADHD/ADD, men’s issues, relationship and marital issues, trans-affirmative therapy, LGBTQIA issues, career and life choices, …), and I am also experienced in working with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) individuals. My goal is to help people live their most authentic life by providing acceptance and a compassionate understanding of each unique individual.

I have extensive trainings in a wide range of modalities, including cognitive-behavioral therapy, positive psychology, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness and stress management strategies; my approaches are active, problem-focused and addressing here-and-now issues, tailored for each client.

I am really looking forward to  guiding you in a discovery of who you really are and creating a plan together to unlock your potential and live your most authentic life!

Let me help you to thrive in life!

About Thrive in Life Counseling and Therapy LLC:

I am still involved in continuing research and emerging trends of therapy (such as internet addiction, anxiety disorders and internet gaming addiction); I present findings nationally and internationally. I am also an educator to graduate and doctorate students who are pursuing their goal of becoming licensed psychologists themselves.

I strive to bridge the gap between research and psychological practice; therefore, Thrive in Life Counseling and Therapy LLC also provides continuing education services for Licensed Psychologists and other mental health professionals (approved by the American Psychological Association). Please find more information about continuing education HERE.
