Educational Background: I received my Bachelors Degree from University of Colorado in Psychology in 1994.

During the years of my experience I have completed additional trainings in: Life Coaching, DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), (EFT Tapping (Emotional Freedom Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), ADHD workshops, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy).

My Approach:

The counseling/coaching relationship provides a unique opportunity that allows you to focus on YOU… not on the outer world and all life’s chores, responsibilities, expectations and daily distractions. This is a safe place for introspection, analysis and evaluating personal progress. This sacred time is set aside for you to safely explore important areas of your life or current stressors. You can feel open to experience your emotions with gentleness, curiosity, and increasing self-awareness. As you more clearly identify your goals, values and hopes, you can set your intention on achieving your best self. This practice leads to living a more “value-driven life” rather than a life that is in response to daily stimuli and stressors. In this way you become more aligned with the truth of who we are.  Ultimately, it’s our relationship with ourselves that affects our relationships with others, and allows us to create a life that’s meaningful and fulfilling.

Present and past experiences have influenced your current emotions, thoughts and behaviors. As you begin to examine more mindfully the patterns of action (and inaction) you will begin to feel more empowered and confident to make shifts and gain a greater sense of control in your ability to move in a positive direction.

My therapeutic style is honest, direct, engaged, understanding, often challenging and highly collaborative. Genuine connection is of utmost importance to me. I will be an attentive listener while also looking for behavior patterns or thinking loops that may be holding you back. Often these “conditioned patterns” block growth.

Sometimes our barriers to happiness stem from feelings and deeply ingrained beliefs that are not necessarily true.  I like to help examine what “story” we may be telling ourselves or repeating over and over, with a new set of characters.

There is no single path towards expansion, change and healing. With that being said, I adjust my style and interventions to what works best for client’s individual needs.

THE BASIC BELIEF OF COACHING is that I believe you inherently know what’s best sometimes it has just been clouded over.  My role is to be a “thinking partner” and help you to find those answers within.  We all have an inner wisdom and the sense to know when we are living as our highest and best self. You’ll learn practices to relax and slow down and reconnect with yourself so you can begin to hear what your mind and head is telling you. This change may be uncomfortable at times. Often it happens in small steps or in one area of focus at a time, yet the process is surprisingly simple. I look forward to connecting with you as we work together to facilitate your unique journey.

Leah is a certified facilitator of True Colors Personality Assessment. This is an easy to understand and easy to apply inventory based on Myers Briggs. This process will help an individual gain a sense of his/her primary personality type and how he/she may approach communication, time management, projects, problem solving and conflict.  This insightful process will increase team productivity and satisfaction. Leah will assess each individual with an easy on-line link, then produce individual and team results. These valuable reports are personalized for each team member and bring greater awareness to the values and mindsets that drive behaviors.  Leah will also facilitate an interactive group seminar which interprets the information while also facilitating group exercises that lead to greater insights and team cohesiveness. In addition: facilitated team conversations and 1:1 coaching is also available post seminar.

Specialty Treatment Areas: Transitional and adjustment issues, drug and alcohol abuse, mood disorders, anxiety, depression, school issues, grief and loss issues, oppositional defiance, trauma, family issues, parent coaching, early motherhood

I have been working with children, adolescents, and young adults since 2000 in a number of non-profit and private organizations. Early on, I helped organize the teen advisory board for pregnancy prevention and adolescent self esteem programs in Portland, Oregon. Since returning to Boulder, I worked as a residential counselor at Attention Homes, completed my graduate internship working with children, adolescents, and families at the Mental Health Center of Boulder County, worked as a primary case worker AIM House, a private residential transitional program for young women, and taught emotional and general health classes at Watershed School and Catalyst High School.  I now draw from each of these unique experiences when working with my clients in private practice.

My work with teenagers and young adults includes drug and alcohol abuse and addiction, social anxiety and shyness, general anxiety and panic attacks, depression, grief and loss issues, trauma, school issues, and complex family issues. While all of these can be horrific for the individual and families involved, the underlying resiliency present in each of these young people and families is the foundation that we build from in the healing process. The core value and the innate goodness of each person can be nurtured and strengthened to work through the most difficult of situations.

Why I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults (including college students):

Adolescence and young adulthood are such amazing, magical, wondrous, and tumultuous times of life. There is such ripe ground for exploration and discovery, yet many young people get stuck in the mud along the journey. It has been a great joy and education for me to work with teenagers and young adults in a variety of settings, and it was these experiences that set me off on my own journey into psychology. Through these experiences, I have become keenly aware of the power of HOPE for change that is present and crucial when working with young people. When coupled with deep listening, a lot of humor, and witnessing the unique person experiencing their world for the first time, the process of therapy can be a profoundly rewarding experience for both client and therapist.

Working with parents:

I offer support for parents who are navigating difficult terrain with their adolescents and young adults, including divorce, transition from middle school to high school, and transition from high school to college and adulthood. While these times can be very difficult for the children, who may also need therapeutic support, it is imperative that parents acknowledge their own difficulties, patterns, and feelings present in the conflict. When parents are able to work through their own issues, it provides a healthy model for their children to do the same. Parents’ ability to take care of themselves through conflicts is emphasized.

Taking care of yourself starts when you kids are babies!
