Meet the Team
Leanne's passion has always been working with adolescents and young adults. Combined with her passion for the outdoors, Leanne became a wilderness instructor in 2004 for youth and adolescents in Northern New Jersey. She decided to take those combined passions a step further and pursue a career in counseling. Leanne received her undergraduate degree in psychology from The College of New Jersey and her masters and educational specialty at Seton Hall University.
Leanne knew at this point that she wanted to find a place where she could hone her craft while gaining more experience integrating innovative approaches. This took her to a residential treatment center in the midwest where she specialized in the treatment of Trauma, Adoption and Attachment through advanced training in Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy as well as Animal Assisted and Adventure Therapy. Leanne has completed her certification as a therapy dog handler team with her Cockapoo, Harley.
Leanne has since furthered her understanding of neuropsychology and treatment of Developmental Trauma as well as other diagnoses with the addition of Neurofeedback (EEG Biofeedback) to her practice. She is mentored by Sebern Fisher, Author of "The Fear Driven Brain" and renowned Neurofeedback Trauma Specialist. She is currently pursuing her board certification in Neurofeedback.
