Her approach to therapy is deeply rooted in the belief that the therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist is at the heart of the healing process. This is why she works from a Humanistic framework, which is based in the belief that providing unconditional positive regard and empathy to clients cultivates a truly safe environment to look deeply within themselves and rediscover their potential and self-empowerment . Leila also believes that humor is vital to the human experience, and always welcomes and encourages this within her sessions. Leila specializes in working with veterans, young adults, and women through issues such as attachment-trauma, chronic depression, anxiety, self-esteem, and life-changes. Her approach particularly finds benefit in using holistic and eclectic methods and integrating tools such as: meditation, breathwork, shadow/inner-child work, and emotional regulation techniques within her work.
