About me

Each of us was reverently and wonderfully made! But over the course of life many of us have been wounded with injuries that eyes can't see--soul wounds. Those wounds may come from absent or unloving caregivers, bullying, abuse, trauma, neglect, hateful words, injuries or illness, substance abuse, lack of safety, abandonment, rejection, etc. There are many ways a person can be wounded. Those wounds don't just go away, and over time they cause problems in our behavior, thinking, feelings, relationships, families and workplaces. We wonder why this anxiety just won't go away, or why we've sabotaged yet another relationship. We get ugly with the people we love, or feel so out-of-control we don't know what to do. We have unexplained illness and ailments, and the treatments (physical and mental) seem never ending. Yes, these are all symptoms of soul wounds.

You are amazing because you have found incredible ways to cope with the difficult and even terrible circumstances you've faced in life! And the good news is that you don't have to live with those wounds forever. Hi. I'm Leah, and I would love to embark on a journey of healing with you. Together we will engage in creative and life-changing interventions, activities and encounters that will help you heal the wounds in your soul, and discover (or rediscover!) the unique and amazing purpose for which you were created! You were meant for so much more, and I would be honored to help you unlock your potential and finally live life to the fullest. I'm going to be honest with you, this is hard work; maybe the hardest work you've ever had to do, but in the end it will all be worth it. What are you waiting for? Let's get started!

Leah has a wonderful calm presence and helps me see things that are there but in a different perspective.

Leah is highly effective in understanding what my goals are and provides realistic and attainable advice for how to achieve those goals. Her ability to listen & communicate back what it is I’m in need of is what sets her apart from any other therapist I’ve had. Would highly recommend her.

Leah was just the right person to help me through some really painful past scars and learn how to forgive. Her gentle Christian counseling helped bring me back to a better relationship with God. She offered perspectives on some hurdles going on in my life that enabled me to re-frame them and stop letting them paralyze me. I highly recommend Leah.
