Looking for an LGBT therapist in the Nashville area? Great, you found one! "Why should you be my choice in therapists," you might ask. That's not a simple question to answer, but I'll do my best. First, I too am a member of the LGBT community. I hope that's a good start.

Secondly, my approach is very different from what I have experienced with other therapists. When you enter into my office you are entering my "living room." A place where you and I can sip some coffee (or tea if you are the more sophisticated type) and chat. "Chat? I thought this was therapy." Exactly! I want you to come to therapy and feel like you have had a conversation with a best friend who is an incredible listener and hospitable hostess. I like to leave the stuffiness at the door. There's really no need for that here. We're trying to be therapeutic right? "

But what if I'm not gay or trans?" No Worries! Leah Newman Counseling is a loving and accepting environment for ALL people. "You got my attention. What else?" Well, with so little space to share the details, I should probably direct you to my website for further exploration. Enjoy! I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I take a holistic approach at healing and processing emotions. You might be wondering what kind of crunchy-hippy stuff I'm up to but all "holistic" means is that I address not just your psychological and emotional problems but I also address and work towards helping you heal spiritually and physically as well. After all, when one piece is out of whack, they all are.

Currently I am in the process of getting another Master's degree in herbal medicine. I am intentional to help you explore all avenues of healing including herbal medicine, nutrition, exercise, self-expression, social support, and spiritual growth.
