Trauma Counseling

Reclaim Your Inner Strength and Discover Freedom

In the depths of our being, fragments of painful memories can become trapped, haunting our minds and bodies. If you've ever felt overwhelmed and alone, trapped in a terrifying situation, experienced a traumatic birth, or endured/witnessed abuse, know that you don't have to face these struggles in isolation.

Our trauma counseling provides a safe space for you to process those fragmented moments that still linger, holding you back from living a fulfilling life.

There is also a more nuanced form of developmental trauma that occurs when exposed to ongoing relational misattunement and emotional abandonment. In response we often develop protective personality patterns to maintain connection without early caregivers. However, these patterns, such as perfectionism, people-pleasing, extreme independence, codependency, and the need to over/under perform, can hinder our ability to form deep, authentic bonds with ourselves and others.

But here's the liberating truth: You have the power to break free from these old patterns and embrace your true, authentic self. Together, I will guide you through the transformative process of healing and self-discovery.

In trauma counseling with me, you're likely to experience:

-Unleashing Your Inner Strength: Discover the resilience within you and tap into it to overcome the constraints of the past.

-Healing the Fragmented Self: Safely process and release the memories that have kept you trapped, allowing you to reclaim authority over your mind and body.

-Cultivate Authentic Connections: Learn how to form and nurture deep bonds with others based on genuine understanding and trust, free from the limitations of old protective patterns.

Don't let the haunting moments of the past define your present or dictate your future!

Mom Support groups

We Were NOT Designed to Mother in Isolation

The transition into motherhood is the most transformative experience a woman will encounter.Unfortunately most women do not receive adequate support, preparation, or guidance during this phase of their life!

We need circles and layers of support to truly flourish and thrive.

Which is why I created communities designed intentionally to empower, support, and heal women during their most vulnerable times.

*Balanced Postpartum is a 8 week group for moms with littles 0-12 months. This is a sacred space to receive continued compassionate support as you fumble and figure out this new role with this new human. Come share the highs and lows, the laughter and tears, the confidence and fears with others who get it.


*Healing Generations is an ongoing process groups for mothers that have their own mother and/or father wounds being triggered by mothering their own children. This is a scared space to learn how to nurture and heal your inner child, so you can mother more authentically and trust your internal wisdom.

Healing didn't happen spontaneously.

I had to Finally get tired of spinning in circles and Choose a New Path

Meet Leah Parker

Hi There! I believe that as children we are forced to disconnect from our true, authentic selves and develop adaptive relational strategies in response to environmental failures.

Like many, my brilliant strategies of perfectionism, self-shaming, and extreme independence were highly successful at helping me become a high-achiever but hindered my ability to develop deep connection with myself and others.⁣

Through my self healing and professional journey,

I have learned to utilize compassion and curiosity in place of shame and judgment.

It sounds simplistic, but this shift has been the cornerstone to my healing and is at the heart of my therapeutic work.

I believe in holding a space of genuine curiosity, compassion, and acceptance for my clients and their experiences to create a space for them to discover and overcome their early adaptive strategies that are now getting in the way of their heart's pure desires.

I am honored to have the opportunity to hold a safe space for others to reconnect with their authentic selves.⁣

“I would be so anxious and stressed, Now I experience such an ease.”

Working with Leah has transformed the way I relate to my everyday life. I would be so anxious and stressed about how I would juggle a baby, work, and my relationship without sacrificing performance. Now I experience such an ease after setting realistic expectations, prioritizing according to my values, and meeting myself with grace. I am enjoying the freedom to make choices that honor my season and desires without the excessive worry and guilt over affecting others.
