Bart Trentham, PhD

I completed a doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from Oklahoma State University in 1994 and have worked as a licensed psychologist since 1996.  I have experience working in secure care, inpatient psychiatric, residential treatment, nonprofit outpatient settings, and have maintained a local private practice for over 20 years.  I have extensive experience treating trauma, conducting psychological evaluations, and helping children, adults, and families with a variety of psychological and life-adjustment issues.

I have devoted my career to helping people find creative solutions for their problems, but I wanted to positively impact even more people‚Äôs lives by assembling a team of like-minded, top-notch counselors.  As the Executive Director of Solutions Mental Health, I am thrilled to have assembled such a talented crew of diverse clinicians.  At Solutions, we use our experience to tailor your therapy to meet your specific needs and to maximize your psychological wellbeing.

Leanne Campbell, LPC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and am currently working on my Ph. D. in Counselor Education and Supervision from Adams State University in Alamosa, Colorado. In addition to private practice, I consult on a Federal U.S. Department of Education Grant with Oklahoma State University and am an adjunct Faculty member at Adams State University.

My experience began over twenty years ago working in social and vocational rehabilitation. Since then, I have raised two teen boys with my partner of 22 years and worked as a certified school counselor and school-based therapist. My practice has recently shifted back to more of an adult focus. I operate out of a relational-cultural, trauma-focused, and mindful approach to help people build self-esteem, learn new coping skills, develop their strengths, and tell their stories.
