New Leaf Counseling Group was founded by Mr. Logan Cohen in 2014 and established in the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte. Logan is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT), as well as an Approved Supervisor for the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and the North Carolina Board of Licensed Professional Counselors (NCBLPC). Over the last 12 years in the field, he has dedicated his practice towards serving community members who are in need of emotional and psychological support, especially those struggling with disruption in their most personal and intimate social relationships.

New Leaf Counseling Founder Loga Cohen

I have known my whole life that I wanted to be a therapist, even before I was aware of the profession as a formal craft. When I was a little kid, my mother would tell stories about working in group home settings as a young social worker and being in dynamic encounters with rough teenagers in inner city Atlanta. It all sounded so exciting and interesting, I don’t think I ever really considered doing anything else with my professional life. Not only is there a degree of inter-generational family legacy regarding Psychology-related fields, but I also know all too well what it is like personally to grow up in a complicated family. I come from a family riddled with inter-generational trauma, psychiatric illness, and addiction. I believe that I was in my own therapist’s office in Portland, Oregon in my early twenties when I realized that in my emerging therapy practice, I merely did for families what I wish a professional would have done with my own family to help us heal. Since a very young age, I had to grow attuned to how to intervene in a family fight before it happened or soothe feelings before they even got hurt. Now as a professional therapist in Charlotte, I utilize this heightened emotional attunement crafted over my years as a sensitive child in my own chaotic family, then combine this wisdom with over 10 years of field experience and the most current evidence-based research and interventions available to the field.

 

Beyond my own personal experiences with mental illness and addiction in my own family, I also had the privilege of accessing inter-generational stories of family resilience that have grown into a significant part of my identity as an adult. I am the grandson of a Holocaust Survivor who lived through the most infamous Concentration Camp of them all, Auschwitz. On the other hand, my grandfather was rescued by arguably the most famous German National to humanitarian efforts during WWII, Oscar Schindler. Oscar Schindler was a German Citizen who utilized his position of privilege to save over 1200 Jews from extermination at the hands of Adolf Hitler and The Nazis. My grandfather happened to be one of those lucky 1200 before he was even a teenager. This story was captured in a major Motion Picture directed by Stephen Spielberg in 1994 called Schindler’s List that won a few Academy Awards.

 

My Grandpa Sam was given a chance to survive by Oscar Schindler and he was able to make a life in America. As a result, he had his own children and eventually I came on scene. When I was growing up in Atlanta, my family and I lived eight houses down the street from my Grandpa Sam and when all of the chaos would be happening inside of my own home as a child, Sam’s House was a bike ride away and he was a constant source of calm and stability through my tumultuous childhood. As a young adult, I only began to realize what those stories meant and the depth of what my Grandpa Sam survived during his own childhood in 1930-40s Poland as the Third Reich was coming to power.

 

Now as a professional therapist, I lean into these stories of resilience in my own family history to remind myself of the rugged and resilient nature of dogged compassion towards life, regardless of how insurmountable the immediate Big Picture might look.

After spending tens of thousands of clinical hours with my own clients and starting a successful group practice, I noticed that my own Therapy caseload filled up far more quickly than I expected. This has blocked the ability of new clients who are ready to grow and transform, and this has unfortunately remained the case for the last 2-3 years. In response to this need I have created The Balanced Man Plan. The Balanced Man Plan is a therapeutic digital experience created by a Male Therapist for Men that has the goal of introducing enough Balance to your life so it is sustainable for the optimal Health & Well-Being of both yourself and Loved Ones.
