With never-ending patience, Leanne has worked with me over several months to question and change some ingrained patterns of anxiety. She is always warm and compassionate, and can help untangle complex issues until they seem simple and straight-forward. Her explanations and working solutions have helped bring an entirely new perspective to problems, and encouraged me look at the world with a different lens. I would whole-heartedly recommend this therapy to anyone
