I’ve just started working with Leah and she’s been really great. She’s flexible with schedule times and has been able to send me outside resources as well. She is a great listener and gives good feedback. She’s also a very kind individual

Leah is an amazing therapist. She asks the right questions to help me get to the root of my problems and gives me a fresh perspective so the problems do not feel so overwhelming. She also has a wonderful sense of humor. More than once I've started a session with tears and ended with laughs. Leah gives lots of practical tips and resources to get unstuck and solve problems. I cannot recommend Leah enough!
