Hi, I’m Joe Leonard and I’m a marriage and family therapist (MS, LMFT-T) in Madison WI, owner of Palm Tree Family Therapy LLC. I also write, perform, and produce rock-n-roll music with my band GUPPY EFFECT. I identify as a vegan and I host the popular blog Lifestyles of the Punk and Vegan.

I am trying to stay focused and avoid distractions. I spend all my time on these things right now (updated 5/4/2020):
  • Being a marriage and family therapist at Palm Tree Family Therapy and a couple of other Madison WI area mental health clinics - helping people with mental health and relationship issues to achieve their goals!
  • Developing a business and brand around "punk rock life coaching," for misfits and non-conformists (like me) trying to be free agents of positive change in the Cosmos and owning it.
  • Writing daily, currently focusing on a fun sci-fi epic novel.
  • Performing live music (via online house concerts) and developing my newest music project, the instrumental surf rock band BANANA HAMMOCK.
  • Self care. I have a PhD in Leisure Science from Abide University and Institute. Continuing education in this field never ceases.
  • Miscellaneous: Self care. Exercising. Cooking vegan recipes.
To keep myself focused, I plan to say NO to any requests that aren’t both AWESOME and related to the things listed above. I wish I could do more, but I have too much on my plate. If you feel your project deserves my attention, I am accepting written proposals.

If my activities change, I’ll update this page. Last update was December 24, 2021.
