Leigh is a licenced Marriage and Family Therapist with 26 years of experience and an energy therapy practitioner with 16 years experience. She offers counseling and energy therapy for individuals and couples and specializes in helping others improve their relationships, recover from trauma, depression or anxiety, cope with illness and disability, and resolve grief and loss.
Leigh brings compassion, sensitivity, humor and a deep understanding of the healing journey to her work. She is very dedicated to offering services that have practical and definable results.
Leigh specializes in counseling which helps you make the connection between your mind, body, emotions and spirit. This is done by accessing your inner wisdom several different ways. Interactive imagery helps you learn to communicate with, and respond creatively to, your symptoms. Inner Family Systems Therapy helps you identify and harmonize the conflicting "sides" of your personality which are in conflict with each other and making change difficult. EMDR helps you resolve traumatic or painful memories, efficiently and effectively. Relationship issues can be resolved through attending counseling with your partner, spouse, family, friend or co-worker. Energy therapy can be integrated into your holistic counseling for further benefits.
In an energy therapy session, you receive a complete strengthening of your subtle energy field, including your seven chakras. This is very helpful in accessing your healthy spiritual, mental, emotional and physical resources, which can be energetically depleted through life's stresses and struggles. Being back "on line" with more of your healthy self can give you the clarity, strength and joy that has been missing. Often, after an energy therapy session, people will report, " I feel like me again!" Leigh has found it helpful in relieving depression, anxiety, physical ailments and spiritual stagnation. Brennan Healing Science, the form of energy therapy in which Leigh is certified, requires practitioners to complete four years of study and supervision of their skills.
Leigh participates with most major health plans in our area, including Devon, Highmark and United Behavioral Health. Insurance does not reimburse for energy therapy treatments.
