Since 2001, I've had experience working with every kind of individual imaginable--from the every-day sane to the severely mentally ill, old to young. Regardless of the client, my mission is the same: To help highly motivated individuals reach their full potential emotionally in order to achieve life-encompassing success. And teaching everyone simple ways to improve their emotional fitness.
I can help you address your issue through body-based psychotherapy, coaching, and/or attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
Interested in a more affordable alternative to individual therapy? Ask me about group therapy or my bioenergetic exercise class.

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.
