Leah Schumacher

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with the state of North Carolina. I began my journey into social work and counseling after being honorably discharged from the US Army in 2006. Due to a lengthy combat tour overseas in Iraq, I was able to gain firsthand knowledge and understanding about the devastating effects Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Close friends of mine were irrevocably changed before my eyes, and I needed to understand why that transition took place. I utilized my G.I. Bill and obtained my Master’s Degree. I have been in the social work field for over five years, working in various settings: veteran’s programs, residential treatment facilities for youth, outpatient treatment and a substance abuse treatment facility. I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Trauma-Informed Care.
My belief is that real change can occur in one’s life when they work with a therapist who is genuine and unbiased; someone who has a desire to see others moving forward and living their lives to the fullest. It would be a true honor to be that individual for you or your loved one.

Written by A.M. on Feb 17, 2020 after counseling with Leah for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

We have tried working with other counselors in the past, but never had great results and we were repeating a lot of the same mistakes. Working with Leah has given me confidence in repairing my relationship when both of us were losing hope. Leah is a blessing in our relationship and I can’t recommend her enough.
