Leah was great to work with. Within just a few sessions my partner and I have made so much progress. Would recommend.

Leah is an awesome individual, she takes what you say and creates a plan and gives you meaningful things to read/do to help yourself. If you’re willing to be open minded she is awesome. Would totally recommend someone to her.

Leah expresses true interest in figuring out who I am and what it is that I need. She doesn't apply a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, but , rather, explores issues and then uses the most appropriate methodology to address them. I really appreciate that she is able to incorporate a spiritual aspect into her counseling. I feel like Leah cares about me and about helping me grow. To put it in a Rogerian framework, she shows congruence, unconditional positive regard, and empathy. I highly recommend her.
