Lisa Leahey, MA, LPC, NCC
I am passionate about people and finding solutions to interpersonal problems and relationships. After many years as a manager for the Walt Disney Company and later as an airfreight sales executive, I decided to use my public relations and management skills to focus more on people’s personal needs. While raising my three children, I worked on a church staff as a Children’s Ministry Program Director, women’s ministry counselor, and public speaker on
various issues relating to counseling and family life.
Walking through the personal struggles with so many men, women, children, and families throughout the years led me to pursue my MA degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Denver Seminary, where I graduated with honors. My practice is not limited to Christian clients, but I believe in addressing spiritual, emotional, relational, and physical aspects related to who you are as a person with acceptance and compassion. I have found that it is impossible to truly understand a person and their situation or life struggle without understanding all aspects of who they are.
My main interest is helping clients with their deepest issues, which is the key to real transformation and freedom from confusion, abuse, anxiety, self-esteem issues, and depression. I work with couples, individuals, families, and blended families who want to transform their current relationships, or are healing from broken relationships. I am a regular speaker at Divorce Workshop Denver, and am passionate about helping people heal through the painful process of divorce. I am certified in Prepare/Enrich pre-marital and marital counseling and have training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples. I am also
trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for clients dealing with PTSD, trauma, abuse, chronic pain, and past or current unsettling life disturbances.
I don’t just believe in change and transformation – I am honored to have experienced this with my clients firsthand in an atmosphere of empathy, trust, and respect. If you are ready to experience change in a safe and non-judgmental environment, or you are a couple that wants to experience deep intimacy and healing, please give me a call.
