Leighna Harrison is not currently accepting new clients.

My therapy focuses on stress management and relaxation techniques for Silicon Valley professional women. To address the unique pressures facing females in tech, including but not limited to: work life balance, gender and race issues in the workplace, and professional advancement, I use evidence-based practices, informed by strengths and systemic perspectives, to help decrease stress and worry, and cultivate enhanced energy, joy, and vitality.

I provide therapy in both English and Spanish, and have expertise in, and especially enjoy, working with women of color. My employment settings have ranged from VA medical centers and county-based hospital systems to community mental health clinics and private psychotherapy foundations.

I am biracial, was born and raised in the SF Bay Area, and have lived throughout the U.S., Latin America, and the Caribbean. I value the diversity of my experiences; my curiosity, compassion, humor, and hope informs my work, and I truly love what I do.
