What is Your Approach?

Attachment-based therapy is a process-oriented approach to individual, couples and family counseling. The foundation of this modality is a trusting and reparative patient-therapist relationship, which creates the safety needed for individuals to process early childhood wounds and trauma.

Exploring the relationship dynamics in the early childhood environment supports individuals in both understanding and shifting current relationship patterns. Attachment-based therapy aims to foster connection with loved ones despite past trauma, leading to a reduction in depression and anxiety symptoms.

 

What is somatic therapy?
Somatic therapy is a form of body-centered therapy that is founded in the understanding that trauma and attachment wounds are stored in the body.

My approach to somatic therapy incorporates mindful-awareness of sensations in the body as both a pathway for deeper insight into the individual’s patterns, and as a way to create the space to shift behaviors, beliefs, and emotions.

I also use mind-body exercises and other physical techniques to help release the pent-up tension that is negatively affecting your physical and emotional wellbeing.

What is Neuropsychoanalysis?

Neuropsychoanalysis integrates neuroscientific insights into existing psychoanalytic theories and models. My psychoanalytic approach involves exploring the roots of an individual’s patterns of behaviors, beliefs, and emotions.

As we uncover these roots we see how early coping strategies developed, these strategies become neural networks, or habits that are wired in the brain. With mindful-awareness and intention we can shift our habitual behaviors, beliefs, and emotions.

What is Mindfulness?
My approach to mindfulness stems from traditional mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) training, however I recognize that traditional practices such as following the in and out of your breath is not for everyone.

Therefore mindfulness is imbued into my approach to therapy with clients often more as mindfulness on the fly, bringing awareness to what is happening in the moment as you go through your day, in other words moments of touching into the qualities of your experience as they arise.

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.

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency item or services.

This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees. Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item.You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. Leah Fox Therapy will discuss your fee for services with you in the initial consultation and you will also be provided this information in writing through the Mandate Disclosure form.

Additionally, you will be provided a Good Faith Estimate form. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call the Colorado Division of Insurance at 303-894-7490 or 1-800-930-3745
