Hi, I am a licensed family therapist with the state of California. I have six years of experience. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional which means I am trained to help those who have experienced trauma, grief and/or loss. Along with trauma, I have experience with anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, self-esteem problems and those road bumps in life we all face. Sometimes we feel stuck, not sure which direction we should go, I can help with that too.
I have been described as compassionate and patient yet direct. I approach most situations from a cognitive behavioral angle however depending upon the client/situation I may use solution focused, narrative or trauma focused treatment; I allow the client's needs to direct how our sessions go. My goal in therapy is to help you achieve your goals.
I believe we all have the tools needed to experience a fulfilling life but sometimes we lose sight of these tools and need a little help accessing these tools, therapy is a great step in the right direction.
I look forward to working with you in helping you achieve your goals!

LMFT #98920 (Expires: 2022-06-30)
I signed up for BetterHelp after knowing I needed help with my anxiety and feeling of helplessness. I was matched with Leann and so far, I am thrilled with my therapy. I felt an instant connection with Leann and I immediately felt comfortable expressing what I needed help with. After just a couple of weeks, I feel encouraged and excited for the first time in a long time. I am so proud of myself for taking this step and I am extremely thankful to Leann for her guidance.
We’re still just getting started but Leann has been very kind and helpful so far.
In just a few weeks with Leann she has asked more relevant and useful questions than I've experienced in months of in-person therapy. I always feel very heard, and her responses are quite thoughtful. She helps me stay on track to accomplishing my goals and is very knowledgable in her field. I would definitely recommend her!
I really like that Leann makes me feel validated and curious about how I feel and my concerns. She offers immediate tools for me to practice and a robust and detailed dialogue supplying me with reasons behind some of my issues and makes me feel like my issues are diagnosable therefore treatable.
I'm happy with my sessions with Leann. Working with her I feel like I'm making progress.
Amazing, professional, every good word that you can think of equated to this woman
It's odd trusting in someone you've only ever met online, however I feel like Leann creates a safe, caring environment for me to express and learn about myself. She is very clear and upfront about everything and has a very nonjudgmental way of giving advice and talking about tough subjects.
Leann is extremely professional and a wonderful person to open up to!
Leann is a great listener. I feel like the time between replies is enough to help recollect my thoughts and think rationally. Only had to use the urgent option once, and she responded very quickly to help prevent an anxiety attack. I would recommend her to anyone.
Leann is amazing. She really takes her time in first laying down some ground rules and expectations. She is very easy to speak with and I feel she really is listening to everything I say. Our messages can get very lengthy, but she doesn’t miss a detail. She makes me feel like she’s an old friend. She makes me feel like she really cares. I appreciate that.
An amazing counselor who truly helped me understand why I was feeling the way I was and got me through a difficult time.
I really look forward to her responses and advices every day, she helps me to maintain focus and give me ideas on how to develop the things that I want to do and she really listens to me. I’m really grateful that she always have charts so I can put in practice some exercises and I don’t feel judgment from her.
She has been helpful through the transition onto medication and various difficulties with past trauma and current frustrations.
The title LMFT does not seem adequate for Leann who has such a broad range of helpful knowledge. Leann has a very professional approach to her work which has given me new tools in ways that make the tools lasting ones. Leann is very supportive, understanding, tactful, and hard working. Things are much better in my life, and a rainbow of new hope is growing along with new joy!
She is the sweetest, most attentive therapist I have ever had. Even if it just over the phone. She is so incredibly helpful and dives right into healing you. It’s truly amazing.
Leann is very personable which made me feel comfortable immediately. She listens and responds to everything I share and understands every bit of it, without any details left out. The worksheets she provides have also been super helpful and kept me busy when I needed something to distract me.
Leann is always very professional and respectful. She has been like a good friend to me since we have been talking on Betterhelp. I appreciate the models and worksheets she provides, and she responds usually very quickly. - She is there when I need her!
Best therapist I have found to date. She has great expertise while maintaining kindness. Talking with her is very easy, and here responses are incredibly helpful and insightful.
