Leigh is a fantastic therapist who puts so much effort into her work and it shows. I chronic health issues and she took the initiative to look up my conditions to lessen my burden of explaining. She deftly handles conversations on intersectional issues and is also warm, personable, considerate and calming during sessions. I can't recommend her highly enough.

I can not say enough amazing things about Leigh. She is kind and warm and listens. You immediately feel comfortable with her and that comfort only grows as your time with her continues. I shared everything with her. I went into therapy thinking that I was a mess and needed a lot of help, but she made me feel validated and that gave me the courage to stand up and love myself first. I’m looking forward to my future for the first time in my life.

The counseling experience that I had with Leigh is amazing. She is an incredibly supportive and caring person, and I don’t fear criticism or judgement in the safe space that we create. Therefore, I can openly talk about my concerns and genuinely feel better afterwards.
