About Me

I don't know you quite yet, but if you are reading this, I already know that you are motivated to live your best life! Seeking counseling is not easy, but get prepared-you are about to embark on a life-changing journey. I see my role as a counselor as that of a guide, and I would be honored to listen to your story and help you write the next chapter of your life.

I am professional counselor licensed in Wisconsin with over 7 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, ADHD, and coping with general life changes, but I have great interest in PTSD and attachment disorders and I specialize in working with individuals who have experienced trauma. My counseling style is client-centered and tailored to fit you and your needs. Each step of the counseling process, from treatment planning to discharge planning is based on what you feel you need. After all, you are the expert on yourself! My evidence-based approach combines cognitive-behavioral, DBT skills, and motivational interviewing, which I feel keeps us focused on goals while still developing a great therapeutic relationship, which is the cornerstone of treatment.

I'm thrilled to get the chance to work with you. I hope we can chat soon!

Leah is the best therapist I’ve ever had in my entire life. She goes above and beyond as a therapist and she’s an incredible person! She feels like a close friend. She always listens to me and remembers every detail I tell her and has great advice and guidance. Trust me when I say YOU NEED LEAH IN YOUR LIFE! She’s very inclusive and knowledgeable in many different realms of therapy which has been very helpful to me as a queer, she/they, native person with a lot of trauma. She’s helped me grow from and overcome huge challenges in my life. 100000000 out of 10 recommend her!!

It's an amazing experience to work with Leah. She responds in a timely manner, tries to get to the root of the problem, and helped me reflect on my struggles. Since we started, I was able to improve massively.
Thank you!
