Clearwater Counseling’s Kayla Leddy Named Credentialed Advocate for Crime Victims
Kayla A. Leddy, CEO and co-owner of Clearwater Counseling, PC (clearwatercounselingpc.org), has recently been named a Credentialed Advocate for Crime Victims by the National Advocate Credentialing Program (NACP).
NACP is designed to promote a minimum of forty hours of pre-service training for advocates, recognizing the advocate’s years of experience, whether volunteer or paid, and requiring continuing education for all advocates credentialed under the program. NACP works to promote higher recognition and professionalization of the victim advocacy field. Benefits of the honor include enhanced recognition, credibility, and mobility in the victim assistance field.
“This accomplishment is really important to me because it’s about victim advocacy,” Leddy said. “Providing victims with support after a traumatic event gives them tools and skills to continue to survive and live their best possible life. It’s an honor to be able to walk alongside my clients as they heal.”
Clearwater Counseling works with individuals with a variety of mental health diagnoses including depression, relationship issues, grief/loss/trauma, addiction and recovery, co-dependency, anxiety and phobias, parenting problems, sexual abuse and incest, physical abuse and violence, as well as various other challenges.
