I specialize in relationship counseling and I want to help you feel more connected to the important people in your life. You do not need to be married to benefit from relationship counseling, and I am happy to work with you where you are in your relationship. I tend to work from an emotionally focused and experiential perspective, which means that I want to help you and your partner create an experience in which you can both feel seen, heard, and more connected.

Friday and Saturday availability! There is no wrong way to begin the therapeutic process, but it usually starts with. a question or two. Why is this happening again and again? Why do I make these choices? How do I change? My role as a therapist is to help you face these questions and use the strengths you have to begin the healing process. This may include revisiting the past, finding mindfulness in the present and looking forward to a better future. I am an affirming CNM and kink practitioner. I am a couples therapist and have completed the first level of the Gottman Method couples therapy.

I am LGBTQIA+ affirming, sex-positive, sex worker friendly, kink /BDSM friendly, and alternative relationship friendly, and I welcome all genders, races, and beliefs.
I work with clients who feel disconnected - from themselves or others. Clients often tell me of not knowing who they are, what they want in life, who they like, or who they want to be. They share with me feeling disconnected in their relationships - feelings of isolation, loss of intimacy and eroticism, and breakdown in communication. Clients share with me the desire to grow within themselves and their relationships. When we work together I will provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for us to process your concerns and work on achieving your goals.

Allied and affirming of LGBTQ; poly friendly, kink aware.
**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** You give so much of yourself to others. Still, you're falling short of expectations. That unconventional perspective of yours has fueled your creativity, but you worry that people don’t really “get” you. It doesn’t help that you have anxiety in social situations. Even your closest relationship feels increasingly tense and disconnected. My name's Leah and I help individuals and couples like you find your way to calm, balance, and connection.

You are the only expert of your own life, but sometimes we need a little help. My perspective is that I'm the GPS and you're the driver- you know where you are isn't where you want to be and I am there to guide you and re-route as needed. I have worked with a wide range of clients with a focus on military members and dependents, life stressors, trauma (combat and otherwise), marital distress, depression, anxiety, and domestic violence. I am LGBT+, kink , and sex work friendly. I believe that it takes courage to come to therapy and you deserve authenticity and a space where you can address your concerns without fear of being judged.

As a graduate of the University of Minnesota's Program in Human Sexuality Postdoctoral Fellowship, I practice sex therapy from a sex positive perspective.
As a Certified Sex Therapist Supervisor and the Executive Director of the Carolina Sexual Wellness Center, I am passionate about helping my clients improve their sex lives and increase authenticity. I supervise a wonderful group of sex-positive clinicians who share my focus on issues related to sex, sexuality and gender. I love the connections I create with my clients and the bond we create as we work toward change. I know it can be difficult to take the first step, but you will not regret your decision to get help and learn the skills and strategies to overcome what has been holding you back. You can do this.

Feeling seen, heard, and understood can be some of the most empowering feelings we experience in life. Having the curiosity to explore our inner worlds with another person in order to let go of what is holding us back is often times the beginning to living authentically. I tend to work with those who feel misunderstood, confused, stuck, and like they're living in a loop of self-deprecating talk. These folx often have gone through various traumatic experiences, have dysfunctional family dynamics, are experiencing anxious unproductive thoughts, or learning to know themselves.

After I became a counselor, I was asked, "So, are you going to fix people now?" My response was, "Well, I don't know about 'fixing people,' but there is something incredibly therapeutic about talking to someone and being able to focus completely on yourself and your issues. Where that person is specially trained, attends only to you, and listens to you without judgment." I believe the safe space created in counseling and the therapeutic partnership allow you to explore the strengths within yourself, while being vulnerable at the same time. We then collaborate on the best way forward, together as a team.

Finding a therapist that you connect with and feel understood by is an integral part of therapy. I help people work towards improved connection within themselves, their relationships, and their sexuality. At times we may struggle to communicate and connect with our partners, experience a lack of passion and romance, or have difficulty managing life struggles, distressing events, or conflict in our relationships. Therapy can be a chance to rediscover yourself, your relationships, and heal from painful life experiences while exploring new skills and resources to grow and develop increased relationship and life satisfaction.

Often our hurtful experiences are out of our control. You didn’t choose to live with pain. You are tired of feeling alone and misunderstood. The reality is our painful experiences and memories can shape our beliefs and worldviews, creating mistrust, shame, anger, and isolation. Living with chronic pain, illness, trauma, anxiety, and grief – does change us. Even if you don’t feel like it at this very moment, there is part of you that knows they deserve something more, whether it’s self-compassion, self-kindness, healthy connections, pleasure, or the chance to move from coping to thriving. You are ready for something more, I can help.
