About Me

Hello! My name is Leah Kalk and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in Idaho and I have been working for over 10 years in the mental health field. I have worked with clients of all ages and diverse backgrounds. I absolutely love helping individuals overcome obstacles, figure out who they are and live their lives authentically.

My experience is varied in both setting and concern area. I have provided individual, group, and family counseling in mental health agencies, juvenile detention, crisis centers, and out in the community. I have worked with refugees from many different countries, individuals experiencing homelessness, problematic substance use, or crisis situations, and even play therapy with children. Presenting issues I have worked with clients on include (but not limited to) depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, parenting, relationship and family issues, substance use, and adjustment issues.

My therapy style is built on a foundation of my relationship with a client. My goal is to build a relationship that is non-judgmental, supportive, authentic, and collaborative from which we can set the goals that make sense for you. Whether you are on a path to self-discovery or looking to alleviate symptoms for better relationships or quality of life (or anywhere in between!), I hope to help you identify your strengths and get you where you want to go. Thank you for reaching out and I look forward to connecting with you!

When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.

Leah has been a fantastic influence on improving my mental health! She is very timely in her responses and has many small points of wisdom and support that she shares.

Work with me!
