Reviews

Written by G.E. on Jan 13, 2022 after therapy with Leah for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, anger management, and compassion fatigue

Leah is professional and business like, but also very friendly and relaxed. She is insightful and honest. I really appreciate how she reframes things in a helpful way. She shows interest in my wellbeing and asks direct but non-threatening questions. I'm getting a lot out of our sessions and I feel lucky to have been paired with her.
