17 year old female clientdepression, body image issues, and self-harming behaviors

I've been in therapy since 8th grade, and had many challenges recovering from my mental health issues. I went to residential treatment, outpatient treatment, and the list goes on.

I met Leya my sophomore year of high school, the fall of 2018, and have been seeing her weekly. She is amazing at what she does, makes me feel safe, and helps me learn positive coping skills to manage my symptoms and behaviors. I've definitely improved and finally have hope.

My spouse and I have been married for 23 years and unfortunately were challenged by infidelity and intimacy issues. We called Leya and had a telephone consultation prior to our first couples session. Leya explained what to expect thoroughly and answered our questions and concerns. We followed the Gottman Method of couples therapy and have mended deep wounds and cultivated new dreams as a couple. Leya is knowledgeable and an expert in finding ways to stay married. We would highly recommend her for couples in distress!

I've had trouble at work feeling anxious and highly stressed with firm deadlines and projects due. I've been in therapy before so I knew some ways to manage but I started feeling like I didn't matter, and started to question my purpose. I have a higher up administrative position and have many employees to manage. Since being in therapy with Leya, I've learned ways to decrease my stress and keep my anxiety at bay. She really listens and makes you feel understood, and provides great insight. I'm happy and satisfied with our sessions.

Therapy with Leya has been nothing short of transformative from day 1. Her guidance, support, and expertise have given me tools to live an empowered and joyful life. The initial phone consultation was both informative and incredibly compassionate. As a person who was reluctant to therapy Leya created a safe environment for me. Leya has helped me navigate various aspects of my life: Anxiety, Depression, Grief, Relationships, as well as other life stressors. Leya’s greatest talent may in fact be the ability to both support and challenge you in order to acheive your best life. Illuminate psychotherapy truly lives out Leya’s purpose which is to help you acheive your best self and give you the tools to navigate this life.
