About Leanne

I know that therapy can be uncomfortable or a hard process to trust for a teen or young adult. I grew up with four adopted siblings and intimately understand the unique challenges that youth face because of trauma or mental health issues. That’s why I prioritize making therapy an active and even sometimes fun experience. My goal is that young people want to come back to therapy and that they start to gain their OWN motivation to feel better. I provide individual therapy, crisis intervention, and parenting education in parent sessions. 


I work with middle-aged children, teens, and young adults. I love helping youth navigate the unique challenges that come with the developmental stage they are in. I help young people dealing with issues that make them feel misunderstood, stuck, or not good enough. I value providing a safe, confidential space for kids and teens, but encourage some parent involvement and parent solutions. 


When working with young adults I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and other quality of life challenges that come with this new life transition. I understand that this time of living comes with uncertainty, need for identity, and new relationship struggles. It’s a phase full of changes! This can impact your mood and quality of life. I want to help with overcoming those things that are holding you back from reaching your potential.


I conduct human-centered therapy and use emotion focused interventions. I am certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and also utilize Dialectical Behavior Therapy. My experience includes working in an inpatient behavioral hospital, juvenile detention centers, a high school, with Primary Care Providers, and in private practice!


I received my clinical Master’s of Social Work with a concentration in Child and Family Welfare from the University of Utah. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
