Leah Cordero holds a Master’s degree in School Counseling from Florida Gulf Coast University along with a Certificate in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
Raised on a deer farm in Michigan, Leah has first-hand knowledge of the impact of family dynamics, social isolation and the importance of finding healthy ways to cope with stress. Following multiple impactful volunteer opportunities and extensive time in Mexico spent volunteering at a center for addicted youth, Leah has worked to promote mental health, belongingness for all, impactful education and social justice awareness.
When working with clients, Leah has been successful using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) to support genuine, strength-based and trauma-informed interactions.
Fueled by her desire to help foster feelings of client safety and acceptance, Leah proudly advocates for client growth and change while meeting them where they are.
In her free time, she daydreams about (and actively participates in!) all things travel, loves learning about different cultures, reading a good book, exercising, eating good food, tending to her houseplants and spending time with her family!
People start to heal the moment they feel heard. - Cheryl Richardson
