Hi, my name is Lorne Leach and I am a Marriage Family Therapist licensed since 2000. I help others deal with a variety of issues including marriage and family problems, anxiety, depression, addictions, grief and coping with life changes. My work has been in a variety of settings including outpatient, residential, addictions rehab, detox, private practice and correctional facilities. The approach I prefer is generally cognitive behaviorally oriented and have had training in several modalities including Motivational Interviewing, Twelve Step Facilitation and Seeking Safety. I take a collaborative approach with clients and believe that ultimately the individual will make their own choices. My job as a therapist is to empower you , help you process and help you develop self help tools.
I look forward to the honor of accompanying you in the healing and growth process.

Lorne is a fantastic therapist. She poses questions that require me to think critically about my past to reflect on things I have not considered before and she is relatable and funny. She is a great listener and with her help, my mental health and relationship perspective have improved tremendously. I cannot recommend her enough!

I had the pleasure of working with Lorne who truly exemplified the qualities of a caring and attentive listener. From our very first session, she made me feel heard and understood, taking the time to listen to my concerns and offer thoughtful insights and guidance.
Throughout our sessions, Lorne consistently showed a genuine interest in my well-being, asking insightful questions and offering helpful suggestions that ultimately helped me to navigate some of the most challenging times in my life. Her warmth and compassion made me feel truly cared for, and I always left our sessions feeling more empowered and equipped to face the challenges ahead.
Overall, I cannot recommend her enough. If you are looking for a therapist who will truly listen, pay attention, and show genuine care and interest in helping you through whatever you are going through, Lorne is the therapist for you.

Possibly later. I chose "strongly agree" on almost all of the previous questions. I would just be repeating the same items as in those questions.

Lorne has been very helpful! She is very attentive and give good advice. When I forget about scheduling my therapy session, she tries to accommodate with my schedule and remind me to make an appointment with her.

Lorne is real, relatable, and relevant. She gives me comfort in being able to honestly express and just be myself.

Lorne is a good listener but she does not review notes from previous session before the session. I felt like I was repeating same things all 3 weeks. There was not much she would do to make you feel better other than listening. May be just not right for me.
