Leah is motivated by one desire: to help conscious and creative people uncover their weirdness and bring their most original self into the world.
After spending a summer hiking south instead of north on the Pacific Crest Trail, Leah learned that going against the grain suites her. Shortly after her backpacking pilgrimage, she founded her practice as a life coach and created her signature program, Positively Sensitive, as a way to support highly sensitive and introverted leaders to explore and boldly claim the power of their trait as their foundation to a successful and joyful life.
When she is not coaching or hanging out with the Brave & Tender Club, she'll likely be found baking with friends, checking out cute vendors at the Farmer’s Market, or skipping off to the wilderness to catch a dark starry sky.

The Power of Embodied Presence
True health, wealth and wellbeing result from grounding and containing your life force energy within your own physical and energetic body. Learning to be (and stay) present is a radical act that is the foundation for sustained transformation and pleasure.
Allow Curiosity to Guide You
In an age of perfectionism and unhealthy striving, curiosity is your best friend. Curiosity naturally pulls us to be devoted learners with a growth mindset. It attunes our eyes to find beauty, wisdom, and celebrations, even in the darkest of days.
Cultivating belonging is one of our most courageous tasks as humans. It often requires forgiveness, honoring one’s own scars, and allowing the natural world to be a mentor of interconnection and rebuilding trust.
Surrender to the Journey
In our current culture, we are overly invested in “creating our reality” and plotting goals to our best life. I believe the seed of our life is deeply rooted within each of us. This seed is brilliant and it is our sacred responsibility to practice receiving the guidance of the mystery (and magic) it holds.

Honoring Indigenous Peoples
In honoring the indigenous peoples and ancestral lineages that were the first stewards and rightful caretakers of all the lands that I have lived upon, I want to list those tribal communities here. I honor these ancestors and pray for and with all living descendants of these resilient lineages.
