I had never had a Soma Session before and was completely blown away by Leah’s attention to detail. She was able to assess my body and find the areas of pain that had been bothering me for years. No massage therapist has ever given me the care that Leah gave to me. She was able to pinpoint each pain area and spent plenty of time working out the tension. I walked away feeling more in tune with my body and... Read more »
I felt released and renewed after my Body Intuitive session with Leah. She is quietly and confidently able to catalyze deep shifts quite gently as she guides you through aspects of the subconscious and beyond. Big thumbs up for that aspect of her work.

Theta Healing with Leah was a sweet and sacred experience. I received exactly the information and confirmation that I needed. I expect the messages to continue to seep even more deeply into my body and psyche with time. Leah’s intuition was spot-on as she named and offered healing to deep and tender places, including some surprisingly specific rituals to take with me. Kind, respectful, and ego-contained, Leah is a trustworthy companion for healing body–body and soul. – J.S., WA.
Two sessions of theta healing with Leah did so much for me. Theta healing felt like having a tailor mend the fabric of my life — mind, body, and soul. Theta healing gave me another perspective. How invaluable. I was so impressed that I started looking up more information on theta healing. Leah is a rare jewel among Theta healers. With this work, it is my impression that the message is just as important as the messenger- and I... Read more »
Your healing was the first focused energy work I have experienced in a long time. I am feeling great from the work. I haven’t been fully relaxed in a bit. I appreciate your attention/intention. The most powerful part was briefly falling asleep. Most of my life, I have had a severe sleep disorder. So falling asleep is a compliment to your work. Thank you for the very powerful treatment. – R.A., CA.
It was my first time for Theta healing therapy, in general, and with Leah, truly a gift! We connected in a calm but spiritually explosive emotional healing specifically driven. Respectfully and gently addressing the specific emotions causing contrast, allowing for a clean flow of cleansing to take place. A truly guided giving and receiving experience of deep healing emotionally, that I hope to explore more deeply in the future. – R.R., Bellingham WA.
I was struck by your care, your clarity, and boundaries. Nothing felt imposed upon by you, allowing me to feel safe and open. Everything felt like an invitation, making it easy for me to participate. The next day, I felt remarkably better, especially with the back injury. It felt like I hadn’t injured myself. The work was meaningful to me as a recipient. – W.C., OR.
I value your grounded presence and the way the space was held. You were logistically and spiritually dialed in. I appreciate your subtlety. The session was every bit as real as getting a tuning fork session in person. I feel good, shifted, and in a new place.
