Having Leah to listen to me, to witness and coach me has been such an amazing and necessary experience! Leah's warm-heartedness, intuition, and sensitivity made this process so nourishing as well as both personally and professionally productive. I highly recommend her.
For years, I've known what I wanted to do but kept running into dead-ends. I sought out support from business advisors, seminars, books, blogs, an art coach, and even therapy. Things changed after I began coaching with Leah. I had a space for unpacking deeply entrenched fears and a guide who helped me do the work. Within a 3-month season I was finally able to overcome hurdles that, despite previous efforts, seemed unbeatable.
Several months later, I find myself moving forward in my journey every day, feeling free from those old, weighty fears---I'm finally leading in my life the way I always hoped and dreamed.

In my time working with Leah, I have felt seen, connected, understood, accepted and wholly valued for the person I am. Our time has been a wonderful, nourishing gift that has allowed me deeper insight to how I function as an artist, entrepreneur, partner, son, and friend. With Leah's gentle guidance, I have come to identify and further understand the ways in which I have been holding myself back. Upon completing our first round of sessions together, I feel excited and motivated to explore my path moving forward. I would wholeheartedly recommend Leah as a life coach.

Leah's guidance has been invaluable to me in discovering a path back from burnout. She provides a safe space to explore the connections between mind, body, and spirit, especially for the HSP person in a high-stress environment. I've learned to reframe my sensitivity as a strength and not a weakness, and connect with the parts of myself that the workplace culture taught me to suppress.

Working with Leah exploded my idea of working with a life coach. I've always wanted to work with someone who encouraged making connections between my work, dreams, history and ideas. Leah encouraged me to grow in ways that I love.

Leah created for me, in our coaching sessions, a grounded and fertile growing space that I expect to be harvesting from for the rest of my life. Every week a new tool, symbol, story and/or experience that unlocked a piece of my own inner wisdom and direction. On top of all that, Leah glows with such a profound kindness and compassion, that I could not help but feel that way towards myself, too.

From the moment our session started, I felt safe and secure. Like a blanket of love was around me. It allowed me to open up to Leah and share my feelings. The best part was that she gave me tools and guidance to help me through not only this difficult time but possible future difficult times. Thank You, Leah!!

While preparing for a workshop to host a diverse team of technical experts I reached out to Leah for inspiration. Leah has a way to intuitively connect to people’s needs. It’s a rare gift. I recommend Leah for anyone seeking clarity for your work, run your ideas over, receive thoughtful feedback and feel reassured and confident for the task at hand.

Thank you Leah for your kind, gentle, powerful presence and extraordinary capacity for deep listening and reflection. As a result of our work together I gained a profound level of clarity, developed a greater understanding of myself and an understanding of my needs and how to balance them.

Leah's coaching work with me over a four month period eased me through the toughest emotional challenge I've had in 20 years…Leah's hosting of a grand Zoom Celebration with 16 friends from around the country, made my Rite of Passage into the next stage of Elderhood a joyful culmination of my 75th birthday.

Leah is a wonderful listener and compassionate coach who has an excellent ability to bring perspective. I so appreciate the space she gave me to explore themes in my life that I haven't felt safe sharing in other coaching spaces as well as her ability to appreciate, acknowledge, and lend a positive perspective to the aspects of my life, experience, and person that I perhaps felt unworthy or troubled to share with others.
