Therapist in blue dress

Hi there and thanks for stopping by! I am Leighya Richard, a licensed mental health counselor, wife, and mom of two littles. Professionally, known as a change agent, mental wellness supporter, and advocate for women’s health.

I help women who long to be who they once were. Women who are adept at putting on a brave face for their family and friends. The ones who often respond “I’m OK” when asked do they need help all the while they are suffering in silence. Assisting women who have dreamed about having it all. Also, those that feel defeated after making several attempts to snap out of this rut.

From 14 years of working in mental health and as a survivor of birth trauma and postpartum anxiety, I know these feelings are temporary and treatable. With commitment, self-compassion, and patience you can feel like you again! Or even better your higher self.

This work is done by empowering you to cope with stress, improve relationships as well as tap into your personal strengths. I use a combination of traditional talk therapy including addressing limiting beliefs, emotional regulation, and active intentional goal setting. As well as incorporating brain-body modalities such as mindfulness, spirituality, and Brainspotting.

You possess everything you need to heal and have a fulfilling life. Sometimes we need a guide to bring that forth. Isn’t it time to put yourself first so you can continue to be a support to others? You are worth it!
