Her Story

After surviving sexual assault at the young age of 14 as well as multiple abusive relationships at various stages of adolescence and adulthood, two of which involved mental illness and drug addiction, Leah Anderson needed answers for her own personal healing and growth.


Questions like; Why do we act the way that we do?  What causes someone to become an abuser?  How is the brain involved in mental health?  How does our environment contribute to our relationships?  How is it possible to have a healthy life and relationships after trauma and abuse? 


Leah began her journey to healing in 2011, which included earning her Psychology degrees, becoming a Life Coach with credentials as a Professional Coach, Relationship Coach, Youth/Parent/Family Coach, Business Coach, Executive Coach and subsequently earning her Master Coach credential. While attending school, Leah went through an intense 72-hour training class to become a volunteer advocate for domestic violence awareness in her local community.  Throughout her many years of community advocacy, Leah was able to connect with hundreds of women who shared similar experiences; she had finally found her own voice of survival and resilience.  Those experiences paved the way for Leah to grow and evolve into the strong, confident, successful woman she is today.  Leah continues to follow her passion to help others overcome the biggest obstacles in their lives, whatever they may be, and find the tools within themselves to be productive, successful and healthy. Whatever your struggles are, from organization or restructure of a daily routine, to healing and empowerment after an abusive relationship, Leah offers her clients comprehensive tools to aid in successful forward progression!  She is a vital asset to those who feel burdened, overwhelmed and discouraged by their individual challenges as she brings a very personal depth to her work in combination with her educational and professional experience.
