Leanne is a Registered Clinical Counsellor based in Kitsilano. She obtained her Master’s degree in Somatic Counselling Psychology from Naropa University, Colorado and she has specialized credentials in Body Psychotherapy and Dance-Movement Therapy: the use of movement, body processes, and body experiences in psychotherapy practice.
With a focus on trauma, Leanne integrates body, mind and emotions to help individuals and couples overcome a range of challenging life experiences, such as anxiety, depression, stress, life transitions, relationship and family issues, grief/loss, panic, low self-esteem, addictions, and other self-harming behaviours. She has a humanistic approach and provides a safe and supportive environment where individuals and couples can express their concerns and work towards greater mental and emotional health.
Building on her education in Somatic Counselling, Leanne’s overarching treatment philosophy, whether working with individuals or couples, is rooted in helping clients to achieve authentic insights and new understanding. Helping clients overcome negative and destructive thoughts and feelings allows beliefs that are part of a pattern of negativity to change. The more aware we can be about our thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and the impact they have on loved ones, the more likely we are to create intimate, loving, healthy relationships and emerge as a fuller, happier human being.
Leanne currently offers movement and body awareness groups in the Kitsilano area.
