Dr. Gip was very responsive when I first reached out to her, which is important because when you need help, you usually need it FAST!
She has been very helpful with my multilayered issues and giving me tools to work with them. I recommend her highly and with the upmost regard!

Leanne really helped me to see past my situation and think about it from unique viewpoints. She really helped me in a time of need when I didn't have anyone else to talk to. I am very grateful for her help!

Dr. Leanne Gip is a very helpful counselor, who not only attempts (and succeeds) to see situations from the patient's point of view, but also takes into consideration their environmental factors. After all, if you're walking a mile in someone's shoes, it's important to know what their usual mile is.
She provides advice and solutions for people who may not be experiencing typical issues that everyone faces, and her experience in assisting people who society may term "abnormal" doesn't turn them into cookie-cutter hollow versions of themselves to simply fit in, but rather helps her patients become better versions of themselves, in the eyes of the patients as well as their environment.
I would recommend Leanne to anyone who does believe that they don't always fit in, for people who truly want to make themselves better, and may be unsure of what they truly want. She is very good at helping someone with too many ideas filter out the "static" and focus on what matters.

Leanne Gip is an excellent and understanding therapist. She has allowed me to "soul purge" and with that I have been finally able to start my emotional healing journey.
Thank you so much
