Professional Summary

Hi! My name is Leah Donahue, and I’m a licensed clinical social worker at Life Counseling Institute.

Everyone needs help sometimes, and it can be scary to take the steps to reach out for help.
Congratulations on taking that first step!

Whether it’s a major life transition or feeling overwhelmed by daily stress, everyone can use a helping hand. I am a huge proponent of creating a safe and comfortable therapeutic environment that helps facilitate your “aha!” moment in therapy: that breakthrough moment when you begin to realize the root causes of your distress and when you begin to understand yourself better.

I also understand that you are not defined by the problems you bring into therapy. You are so much more than the problems you face, and I hope to celebrate and highlight your strengths in our work together. I try to nurture the whole person by promoting mindfulness, creating a judgement-free environment, using cognitive-behavioral techniques, and actively listening to you. Together, we will work to define and achieve your goals so you can become the best possible version of you!

In my free time, I enjoy cooking, traveling, yoga, and learning about different cultures.

Leah works with adults, couples and teens. She has experience working with LGBTQ+ individuals and individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship stress, OCD and trauma.
