Hi, I'm Leigha. I work with people who are looking for support in building a more successful life. I give them the tools to turn negative thoughts or behaviors into more positive ways of coping. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Texas and have over 6 years of post-Master's experience working with children, adolescents, young adults, and families. Throughout all of my experience and training, the most important thing that I have learned is that there is no "one size fits all" to therapy. Each client needs and deserves an individualized approach and I do my best to make sure that I can offer a completely unique therapeutic experience for each person I serve. I believe that therapy is a collaborative effort between the therapist and the client, so I attempt to engage clients in every step of deciding what therapy will look like for them.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I am quite passionate about working with children and adolescents who are suffering from trauma symptoms or traumatic grief. I utilize the Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy model for such clients and have seen some incredible results.
I also specialize in working with foster and adoptive families or with caregivers who are not the biological parents to the children they are caring for. Fostering attachment and providing support to such families is also an area I am especially passionate about.
