Leanna is a passionate and down to earth Therapist who is committed to collaborative relationships and creative solutions.  She approaches her work with curiosity, acceptance, and compassion.  Her strength-based positive approach to change is both effective and rewarding. 
Leanna's philosophical perspective is that people naturally strive for connection.  Counselling facilitates connection by providing supports and therapeutic opportunities for making change through emotional processing, psychological shifts and practical skill building.  The process of connection based Counselling facilitates an increase in self and relational awareness that leads to personal growth and an increase in personal meaning and purpose in relationships.      
Leanna is a Registered Social Worker with extensive Psychotherapeutic training in the fields of Social Work, Individual, Couple and Family Therapy, Grief Therapy, and Art Therapy.  In her 15 year career, she has focused on how individuals are shaped by their cultures and families and how this influences their sense of wellness as well as how they interact in key relationships.
