She was absolutely the best person I've ever gotten the chance to talk about my personal feelings towards. She let me speak for however long I needed to about whatever issues I had, and really made me think deeper into situations. As well as taught me skills I will use for the rest of my life.

Working with Leah is very eye opening. I feel like we have conversation and she will point something out or reword what I said and it’s like “bam” I see it in a different light. I really like her approach.
