Really tense and unwelcoming office environment. She shares it with a real estate agency and has no waiting room. You sit in a chair in the hallway while the radio static blares, in an attempt to drown out the confidential conversationsgoing on in her office. She was nice, but the environment is really unpleasant. I was in a bit of a crisis and had to wait ten minutes past the start of my appointment for her to come out. I had no way of signing in or letting her know I was there. I just sort of sat while loud, aggressive, business conversations were going on all around me. She was pretty nice but I didn't feel particularly relieved or even like I was on the right track after I left her office. I shared a lot and it seemed like she was entertained and mildly empathetic but I wanted some guidance and she seemed sort of unfocused. I will find someone else.

I saw Leanne for a few months over a year ago having lots of history with CBT and DBT. I liked her a lot but wasn’t ready yet or sure what I wanted out of therapy at that time. I cameback in August ready to do work, and that is what Leanne does. I am not an assignment person and have struggled with more disciplined therapists and programs in the past, but Leanne is firm in an understanding, non combative way that doesn’t prompt anxiety. She is not sterile or removed but is very professional and appropriate. She gives extremely doable, thought based “homework” that keeps my therapeutic goals present between sessions without being overwhelming.

I think she would be wonderful with military members, as she stayed on her website. She was just a little too brusque and aggressive for my sensibilities.

I did not know what to expect for my first session with a counselor, but Leanne is down to earth and easy to talk to. I immediately felt at ease. You can tell she is truly interested in the well-being ofher patients - not just wanting to help them maintain, but get past what is holding them back from living life to the fullest. I left feeling like I am on track for setting goals and with homework to start tackling the root of my anxiety.

Leanne was great. She takes time to listen and gave me actionable direction based on our discussion. Leanne was very easy to work with and I would certainly recommend seeing her.

Leanne has been a huge help with my anxiety and depression. I've been seeing her for almost a year now and I have seen such a dramatic difference in my overall mood. She is blunt and gives it to you straightwhen you need it, soft and more subtle when you're not ready to face your issues yet and is always open and ready to listen. There have been times that I was dreading the appointments because I was fearful of judgement but she has never been judgmental towards me whatsoever and I always leave feeling refreshed. Take her homework seriously. Make sure you take advantage of her 20 min trail and she's a good fit for you, you won't be sorry.

Very productive Leanne is benevolent, it took a lot of courage and a huge step for me to look for professional help. Leannes amicable approach taught me to gather a incisive grasp for not only my betterment but my family also. First visit was very profound. Thank you Leanne!

Very straightforward and organized first appointment (initial paperwork). Nice person. Thorough. Honest about communication and how important that is for the therapy to be successful. Looking forward to a second session.

Leanne has been wonderful. My husband and I are seeing her for marital issues we couldn't seem to resolve on our own and the sessions and follow ups have definitely helped.

I went to Leanne because I don't feel comfortable talking to my psychiatrist. I immediately felt comfortable talking to her. I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders after leaving my first appointment. I felt like she really listened, askedquestions, and wanted to help me set goals as well as get to know me. It was very easy to open up to her right away. Would recommend to anyone considering trying a new therapist.
