Leah Brecher-Cohn believes that the essence of every human being is good. And if that human being's thoughts, feelings or behaviors don't reflect that goodness, it is because it is being blocked. Pain and upset related to marital issues, career challenges, chronic illness, stress, parenting concerns, loneliness, anxiety, and depression reflect misunderstanding, fear, judgments, and separation. Leah's work is guiding good people through their challenges to rediscover their goodness. She does this by applying an eclectic mix of psychological approaches, educational techniques, and spiritual practices while providing compassionate support and practical feedback. She helps her clients realize their own strengths and talents, which lead them to more joyful and fulfilling lives.
