Leah approaches psychotherapy from a trauma-informed psychodynamic, relational, and humanistic perspective. She believes strongly in incorporating both systemic and body awareness in order to understand and address the whole person.
Leah has a warm and engaging interpersonal style, and uses her direct yet gentle communication skills to help clients feel safe enough to bring things into awareness, take risks in the therapeutic relationship, and deeply explore the dynamics that have led to suffering in their lives.
Leah has experience working with young adults and adults struggling from a wide variety of concerns, with a focus on eating disorders and body image, relational trauma, health trauma and grief.
Leah received her Masters in Counseling Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. She has trained and worked in an outpatient setting, as well as in a Partial Hospitalization Program and an Intensive Outpatient Program. Leah also has a strong interest in understanding how groups can facilitate healing, and attends intensive experiential trainings in both group psychotherapy and group relations in the Tavistock tradition.
