Leah E. Newman, MEd, NCC, Pre-Licensed Professional in Nashville
Looking for a Gender Specialist in Tennessee? Or perhaps a therapist who treats the gay and lesbian community? Look no further. While specializing in gender transitions, gay & lesbian concerns, and mindfulness-based treatment, I also treat anxiety, depression, bipolar, and teach coping skills. My desire is to offer a warm and inviting place for all clients who are searching for a new way to manage their stressors and life decisions. Don't worry, our straight friends are always welcome too!

My goal is to provide LGBT and particularly those embarking on the transition process a safe place to come when in need. I also enjoy working with couples and significant others who are experiencing change with their spouse's transition as this can be a very difficult and confusing process.
