Leah Henningsen, M.A., NCC, QMHP, Professional Counselor Associate # R6873
Feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and disconnected from yourself and relationships can feel isolating and difficult to navigate. Providing yourself with the opportunity to gain skills and insight into your needs, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors through the counseling process can be a transformative experience.
Using trauma-informed, integrative, person-centered, mindfulness, DBT, CBT, and ACT approaches, Leah assists clients with reconnecting with sense of self, strengths, and core values to foster deeper connections and meaning in their lives. Leah values creating a safe space, free from judgment that provides warmth, trust, compassion, and understanding. Through these approaches, clients gain strength and tools for healing, self-discovery, and connection to improve their ability to navigate and overcome patterns, barriers, and adversity.
Leah has two years of post-graduate experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in outpatient and residential settings. Additionally, Leah has published research in the fields of perfectionism and body image concerns.
