Welcome! I know it is a big decision to engage in therapy and I’m excited to help guide you achieve your goals.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and graduated with my MSW from Stephen F. Austin State University in Texas. I have worked as a Social Worker for 12 years in a variety of behavioral health settings including outpatient settings (clinic and community based), inpatient setting (behavioral health hospital), school based, group therapy, crisis intervention, as well as case management. I believe in helping individuals, couples, and families improve their entire system and environment that surrounds them. The majority of my experience has been in helping clients overcome or cope with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, family issues, grief, and anger management. I also have experience assisting individuals cope with trauma and am currently working on certification for Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).
My style is caring, direct, and client centered. I want to help others achieve what they want in life. I am non-judgmental and believe that everyone can improve their quality of life and happiness, but some people require different routes to achieve this. Life is hard so it is okay to ask for some help to find our way! I look forward to working with you!

Leah has helped us so much! She takes the time to listen to us and really helps us both see the other persons point of view. She has been very LGBTQ friendly, which is important to us! We really enjoy our sessions with her and we always leave feeling better and more confident about our relationship! 10/10 would recommend!
Leah has an easy and relatable demeanor. She is professional and kind, empathetic and understanding. She offers guidance and goals, and offers suggestions in between sessions.
Leah is absolutely wonderful. She challenges us individually and as a couple, in the most encouraging way.
She’s lovely and easy to talk too. She seems to have an organized approach to the issues I’m asking her to help me with.
