Safe passage through pain

You may be moving through life carrying feelings of being overwhelmed, trapped, fearful, angry, sad, or stuck. I provide compassionate, authentic, and nonjudgmental care where you will be heard and understood. Together, we will find safe passage through your pain towards greater understanding, self-acceptance, and well-being.

Leah K Barison, LPCC


I am here to join your journey with skilled insight, compassion, and the tools to help you thrive.
