Anxiety

After a social gathering, you can’t fall asleep because you’re spinning out about things you wish you hadn’t said, you wonder why you get so damn awkward?  You seem to overthink everything.

You obsessively tell yourself that you’re a loser and wonder why you can’t just be “normal.”At the same time, you feel ridiculous that you irrationally overthink simple things.

Depression

From the time you get up in the morning, you feel as if you’re dragging yourself through your day.

You’ve been holding it together for as long as you can remember. You try to summon the energy to not drag loved ones into your despair, but you know they are impacted by your depression.

Depression is correlated with chronic pain, memory loss, and other physical ailments.

It literally physically hurts to be depressed.

Trauma and PTSD

You watch yourself see threats everywhere you go. Even when you’re trying to rest, your heart races and your mind tells you aren’t safe in situations that you rationally know are harmless. Your jaw and stomach tighten, your shoulders raise and you can feel that you might pop-off on someone at any moment. You wonder what is wrong with you, why do you freak out?

Trauma leaves a neurological imprint which makes one constantly on edge. A simple trip to the grocery store can trigger the brain to react as if in danger. The traumatized brain struggles to…

My specialties

Hi I’m Leah Fox

Many of us seek therapy when we are ready to change patterns of self-sabotage. We know that in some way we are contributing to our struggles, and we want to figure out a way to get out of our own way so that we can experience peace.

We want to know what to do about the feelings, thoughts and behaviors that play as if on repeat. I believe that this repetitive cycle reflects an issue of stuck emotions. Emotions are meant to move through us, hence the Latin root movere meaning ‘to move.’ The therapy modalities I use are designed to support you in processing stuck emotions, so that you are liberated from the patterns that they trigger.

I am a relational therapist, meaning that I build a reparative connected relationship with my clients, offering an opportunity for them to feel seen a way they have been longing for. This unconditional support and understanding creates fertile soil for clients to grow. Clients often express that they feel a sense of warmth, safety and trust with me. Every life I touch is precious and I feel blessed to work so intimately with people. It would be an honor to work with you, feel free to reach out to set up a free consultation to see if I’m a good fit for you.

Are You Addicted to Stress?

Are you addicted to stress? It’s highly likely that you are. Many of us in modern society are addicted to stress and there are a lot of external reasons for that, but I’m going to be focusing more on the internal reasons that we become addicted to stress.

Leah creates a safe space for clients by showing compassion, presence, acceptance, and empathy (both verbally and somatically) within the appropriate therapeutic relationship. Clients feel quickly safe in her presence as evidenced by their deepening into uncomfortable material very soon. She is also able to face difficult situations and take initiative to resolve them with grace, presence, and clinical judgment, while also holding systemic (including family dynamics) perspectives. All of this makes her an invaluable clinician to serve clients within complex systems.

-Former Supervisor

Leah is committed to social justice and cultural humility and it shows from the questions she asks, the approaches she takes with clients, and the ways she engages in the world personally to professionally. From engaging in research on racial equity to fat acceptance, Leah was always thinking about how to show up as a clinician who utilizes her role for creating systemic and individual change.

-Supervisor

Leah really listened to me, I’ve never had that level of compassion and curiosity with a therapist before.

-Former Client

Leah has been a treasure trove of enlightenment for me.

-Former Client

Leah truly saw my son in a way no one had before, her reflections helped him to thrive. She was able to support him in navigating his anxiety during a very difficult transition by highlighting his strengths and teaching him skills to build on these strengths.
