I started my career by helping individuals who were struggling with substance abuse issues and expanded my focus to support individuals with other mental health concerns. I love what I do as I get to see the best of the human condition and I have the unique opportunity of witnessing individuals strive to make changes, resulting in an improvement in their lives and well-being. I love listening to others’ journeys and collaborating with them regarding how they will write their next chapter.

Leah Booze

LB HeadshotI am a Licensed Professional Counselor and have been in clinical practice since 2016.

I have been trained to work with adults psychodynamically, with a focus on relational trauma. The lens in which I practice is rooted in mindful awareness, value interpretation, and a strong focus on building/repairing a positive, self-compassionate perspective as a means to embrace the fullness of you. Building self-compassion is often a process, and I enjoy supporting clients in building this core need.

I will do my best to listen, learn and tailor my approach specifically to your needs as my practice is eclectic in nature.  The past is viewed with empathy and understanding to better live in the present.

Some themes that stand out in my practice involve healthy relationships, attachment, depression, spiritual integration, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, domestic abuse, addiction, grief, postpartum transitions, women’s issues and self-esteem.

I’ve had several years of counseling experience in a community mental health setting, and have education experience as well as leading group therapy on the topic of Healthy Relationships.
