Written on May 29, 2023 after therapy with Leeann for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

I’ve only had one session with Leeann, but it was an incredible one. She helped me realize that I have unresolved issues from my childhood, and to not throw a new and healthy relationship away—my MO.. For the first time in my life, I have almost no anxiety being in a relationship.. I never thought therapy could work for me. Thank you so much!

So far Leeann has been an amazing help. She’s intuitive and isn’t afraid to call me out to think on what I’ve just said, which helps me to realize what I’m actually feeling and why.

Leeann is talented at being able to comfort you while also helping to get to the root of the issue throughout our sessions together. She helped me a lot by being accessible to me during my times of need and she was extremely supportive and helpful. I would definitely recommend her!
