I also support clients who have endured the effects of trauma, grief and loss, as well as self-harming behaviors and suicide ideation.

Leigh is very easy to talk to. Responds quickly, has a heart for what you are feeling and validates your feelings beautifully. Seems to have a quick insight and is very supportive with encouragement in prayer and a Godly perspective on problems. Leigh has been a blessing and I know the councillor I prayed for!
