I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 15 years of experience in helping people from all walks of life find solutions to their problems. Over the years, I have been told by clients that they really feel that I am listening to them and trying to understand what is going on in their lives and how they feel. Clients have also told me that they do not feel any sense of judgment, but rather that I accept them for who they are and where they are in their life and faith journey.
My style is empathetic and solution focused. I will spend time asking you questions in order to get to know you and try to find out what is at the heart of your issue. Together, we will talk about possible avenues you may want to take, or changes you may want to consider. I may give you some “homework” assignments…things to write out or think about, worksheets to complete, or even techniques/exercises to practice in your own time so that some of what we discuss in our sessions is reinforced. There might also be some time spent in reflection and/or Bible passages that I will ask you to pray on or consider.
Most of all, I will be an objective listener, helping you to gain insight into what is going on with you, so that you are able to make the choices and changes you want to, in your own time. I will not be here to judge, as that is the job of the Almighty, but I will help you in figuring out how He is speaking to you so you may act accordingly.
I look forward to working with you!

Leah has been such a tremendous help to me. She is kind and listens attentively. I appreciate her genuine concern about me, also her insight into the events happening in my life. Prior to Leah, I hadn’t had ongoing counseling sessions, so I was nervous and not sure what to expect. Now, I recommend counseling to everyone! Thank you, Leah, for being such a blessing to my life.
