A Message From Our Founder

Mala Deodhari-Beni, LCSW

"Therapy saved my life...

…and if that’s what you’re looking for, then you’re in the right place!

My name is Mala, I’m the Founder and CEO of Legacy Counseling.

I started Legacy in 2016 because there was a point in my life where I was 

exactly where you are right now:

searching for someone who could help me.

You see,

I have my own trauma story…

and if it wasn’t for some amazing social workers and therapists

coming along on my journey

helping me to find the words to rewrite my narrative,

I wouldn't be sitting in front of you today.

I wouldn’t be here…

They helped impact my legacy

and that’s one of the driving forces behind

why we do what we do here at Legacy.

Now if you’re thinking about choosing Legacy,

I could go on and on about our amazing therapists

of various cultural backgrounds

and the multitude of therapeutic modalities they specialize in.

But truthfully, 

what matters more than anything else in the world to us at Legacy is…

YOUR legacy!

because at the end of the day,

what really is important to us

is who YOU become,
