For several years, Dr Lentenbrink worked in Los Angeles for the Department of Mental Health providing in home-services and assessments to connect individuals with appropriate care. She also provided psychological testing to support clinical decision making.

She also had the privilege to do much of her clinical training at Valley Community Counseling Clinic in the Los Angeles where she was mentored and trained by many prominent psychoanalysts in the area. The extensive psychoanalytic and psychodynamic training has deeply influenced and shaped her approach to the therapeutic and assessment process.

Dr. Lentenbrink’s approach focuses on examining underlying factors and piece together a picture of an individual in a very nuanced and carefully minded way. This approach allows her to hear beyond symptoms and construct a holistic view and understanding of those she has the opportunity to work with.
