Message from Aleigh

If you've been searching for a therapist who is active, dynamic, and is enthusiastic about getting you out of your comfort zone, welcome home. I'm kind but direct, warm and energetic. I'm a feeler and an intellectual and work with both the brain and the body as a therapist and as a human. You can expect our work to be deep, vulnerable and comforting at times - and vibrant, enthusiastic and challenging at others. I don't shy away from humor or encouraging you to look clearly at yourself in the proverbial mirror. Working with me, you won't get a therapist who sits back quietly, nodding with gentle mhmm's as you lay out your woes session after session. I will be an active partner to you, bringing insight, expertise and regular feedback to help you uncover the patterns, beliefs and themes in your life that may be directing your behavior without your conscious realization. Often that awareness is enough to start the change process, but if not, we'll ensure that we work together to translate insight into action. Beyond the expertise outlined below, I have niche specialties in working with those managing the transition to parenthood as well as those working in high intensity creative careers.

Get to Know Aleigh

"Aleigh is fantastic. She's insightful, thoughtful, and is really good at finding the balance between being a sounding-board and pushing. I have no hesitation recommending her."

J.F., Pre-Marital Counseling, Client

"Aleigh is incredible! Listens intently and provides thoughtful, considerate advice. I feel very safe speaking with her and always appreciate how she asks how certain things are resonating with me to ensure we are on the right path together. I began seeing her at the beginning of covid and I'm not sure how I would have gotten through the past few years without having someone to talk to."

S.M., Individual Therapy, Client

"Aleigh has been fantastic in so many ways! I feel so comfortable speaking with her and she truly listens and provides helpful insight into every topic we discuss. You can tell she really cares about you as a person and wants to help! I think she has a wide range of expertise on different topics and I couldn't recommend her enough!"

K.P., Couples Therapy, Client

"Aleigh is the best. She is a really good listener. She's great at identifying and addressing problems, and does so with empathy and understanding. I always knew in our sessions that I would be heard and that my thoughts would be taken seriously because of the safe space she creates. My experience with Aleigh was extremely positive, and I have sent her info to friends and family, who have had the same excellent experience. I cannot recommend Aleigh enough!!"

S.H., Couples and Family Therapy, Client

"I was new to therapy when I started working with Aleigh; I was nervous, excited, desperate and skeptical. She made me feel safe in ways words confined to a review box cannot describe. Aleigh was soft, yet stern. She was equally thought and emotion provoking, as she was an ear for listening. Through some of the darkest times of my life, as well as being there for some exciting new beginnings, Aleigh was a guiding light, a beacon of safety, and taught me how to create space for me. I learned empathy, I learned how to listen and I truly believe I am a better human because of our time together. I would recommend Aleigh to anybody seeking therapy and especially anyone who thinks they don’t need it. A beautiful experience"

B.F., Individual Therapy, Client

What is unique about the work you do, or how have you found your work to be different than your colleagues'?

A lot of therapists shy away from challenging you in service of creating a space that is warm, comfy and cozy. I attempt to do both. I believe artfully challenging clients out of their comfort zone, bit by bit, is a powerful tool in creating meaningful change through therapy.

Are there any philosophies or values that inform your work that I should know about?

I believe that our relationships are a critical part of leading a meaningful and fulfilling life. When we feel disconnected from others, in general or with specific significant people in our lives, it can have huge impact on our day-to-day happiness. I've found that looking at ways to learn about and improve the quality of your relationships can have a profound impact on how you feel about yourself and your life.

How will our relationship be different than relationships I have with friends/loved ones?

This is so important. Your relationship with your therapist is infinitely special because it is all about you. This is the one place where you can focus exclusively on your wants, needs, thoughts and feelings. This is a space for us to explore everything about you (and for couples counseling, your relationship) in order to get you to where you'd like to be.

What is the best part of the work for you?

I find learning about the raw and real experiences of the people who work with me to be endlessly fascinating and deeply meaningful. My work as a therapist energizes me every day, and I am honored to walk alongside you, or you and your partner, as a guide on your journey to working through areas where you've become stuck.

How do you approach diversity in the room or working with clients who may come from a different background than you?

I have worked with people along the full spectrum of racial, ethnic, spiritual and socioeconomic backgrounds. When a person's background differs from my own, I perceive them to be the expert of their own culture, values, beliefs and experiences. I ask thoughtful, exploratory questions to get a full picture of what walking through life looks like for you. I supplement this with my own research if I, or you, feel there are gaps in my understanding. I invite this understanding intentionally into the therapy room and make it an active part of our work together.

From your perspective, what is therapy?

Individual Therapy often answers two questions concurrently: "Why am I the way that I am?" and "How do I want to be?" In our work together, we will seek out the answers to these questions and find our way to a you that feels good. Couples Therapy often answers slightly different questions: "Why do we continue to get stuck?" "How will we get through this?" "How can we reconnect with one another?" and at times, "Is this the right relationship for us?" In our work together, we will seek out the answers to these questions and find our way to a relationship that feels intimate and loving.
