About me

Hi, I am Leah and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have been licensed for 14 years. I just celebrated my 17 year wedding anniversary. I have an 11 year old and a 14 year old. Mood disorders, ADHD, addiction and autism run in our families. I went to UCLA undergrad and graduated Magna Cum Laude. I went to CIIS in San Francisco to get my Masters in Counseling Psychology. The program was the only one that interested me as it was experiential, emphasizing mindfulness meditation and your own personal growth, East and West psychology and had amazing teachers. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and families. I believe in meeting people where they are at, building on their strengths and working collaboratively. I continue to work on myself and learn new skills and I look forward to working with you on this path toward healing and self discovery.
