Are you the person who has it all and you’re still not happy? You’ve done everything right but you cannot fully enjoy the life you’ve worked so hard for? Or maybe you keep doing something you can’t stop yourself from doing, even though you’ve tried. I specialize in helping highly-motivated individuals reach their full potential emotionally to achieve life-encompassing success. And yes, it is possible to reach your goals in half the time of typical talk-therapy. Why waste time in a subpar emotional state when you could really feel happy?
The solution starts with a simple premise: your mind and your body are one. Therefore, using your body to deal with the problems of your mind significantly accelerates the healing process. You can get to the root of the problem more quickly and incorporate an emotional fitness routine into your daily life to get the happiness and peace-of-mind you’re after.
I use body-based psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and life-coaching. My deliverables could be described as SMALL, MEDIUM, and LARGE. I define SMALL as crisis intervention; we address your immediate concerns. MEDIUM is support and relief. Giving you an outlet for your daily life. And LARGE; those are the deeper issues covered in my book, Emotional Utopia.

Professional Connections

I have met Leah in several bioenergetics analysis training groups over the years at Florida Society of Bioenergetic Analysis. I enjoyed her active intellect and contributions to the group as well as her sensitivity. The group provided opportunities for us to work as therapist and client, so I was able to witness her work. I would highly recommend her as a therapist.
