I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is passionate about working with adolescents and adults to help them improve their lives.

Hi, I'm Leah. Is everything just too much? Are you anxious or irritable, depressed or hopeless? You can get better and you can get help! Whether you are experiencing a loss, going through a life transition or just needing a listening ear, therapy can be instrumental in working through life's challenges. Seeking therapy can be hard but it is a sign you are ready to improve your life and your mental health! 

I'm passionate about walking through difficult times with my clients and empowering them to make lasting changes. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, with over 10 years of experience, I work collaboratively with my clients to help them improve their lives. I utilize a strengths-based approach and incorporate many evidence-based techniques into my work.

My formative years as a therapist, included working with at-risk children and adolescents in several Chicago Public Schools. I also have experience in medical and dental social work.
