Boozhoo, A'nin. I'm Leah Lychowyd, a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) living in Thunder Bay in Northwestern Ontario. I am a member of Red Rock Indian Band. I am specifically trained in working with Indigenous peoples including First Nations, Métis and Inuit. If you are experiencing a dysregulated nervous system, anxiety, trauma (complex & intergenerational) or an overall feeling of a lack of belonging, I would be honoured to hear your story. If you are looking to cultivate inner calm and peace and feel grounded and more connected with yourself and your life, send me an email to see if I can be helpful to you.
I walk alongside individuals with navigating their complex inner experience with a focus on anxiety, trauma, and indigenous identity. I work from a culturally grounded, strengths based, trauma informed perspective. I am trained in a variety of modalities including EMDR, CBT, DBT, mindfulness based modalities, and storywork/narrative therapy.
If you are looking to cultivate self compassion and kindness with yourself and break free of constricting cycles of pain and are needing some help building that initial momentum, reach out and let's see if we are a fit to walk on this journey together.
