Deep Healing SE Sessions
Leah is an exceptional healer and teacher. Working with her brought a deep awareness of energy stuck in my body that I had been unaware I was holding throughout my life. Her bright presence and compassion holds space for real transformation to take place. I love SE healing work and find it goes miles beyond what traditional psychotherapy can offer.

So happy I found Leah!
I was introduced to Leah by a good friend when I visited Sayulita. Leah was so welcoming, so full of local knowledge and an amazing yoga and surf instructor. I had the pleasure to take both a yoga session and multiple surf lessons with her, and she made me feel so comfortable, taught me a ton and made the experiences a total blast. I’d absolutely recommend her to anyone. The town is very lucky to have her.

You need to try Somatic Experiencing with Leah if you're on a healing journey
Having Somatic Experiencing (SE) sessions with Leah has been so transformative! I've been going to talk therapy my whole life and this approach is so different and complementary in essential ways. Leah is trustworthy and empathetic. They are continuing their SE training seriously, beware of scams who talk about somatics after having taken an hour workshop! Not the case with Leah, they know their stuff!

Beautiful SE
I am so glad I found that Leah does SE! She has opened my eyes or body to a new way of listening to itself. This practice has helped with my anxiety a lot as well as helped me be more aware of my self abandonment patterns, and noticing my self going into them before I’m stuck in them so I can change course or check in with my self. Leah is an incredible practitioner and just really lovely to work with. I always feel thoroughly heard and seen by Leah in a very easy and comforting way.

The Queen of Surf
Leah rocks - her attitude and skill set made surfing so enjoyable. I felt safe and challenged and after a week of surf camp was so much more comfortable in the water… surf toolbox now full.

Epic time
I had my first surf lesson with Leah at the ripe old age of 47 & it was very informative (& fun!) Being the type of person that likes to be good at things right away, surfing was not one of those things & Leah seemed to recognize what I needed & keep me motivated & focused on my strengths in the water. I’m “one hundo p” (as my kids are saying) gonna take another surf sesh next time we’re in town. Maybe I’ll even give yoga a try! seeing as I felt pretty awesome with Leah’s instruction.

Amazing Surf Instructor!!!
I went to Sayulita with the intention of learning how to surf. Not just a one-day photo-op type of tourist lesson, even though I’m a complete beginner. Leah responded immediately to my request and set me up with 3 days of private lessons with her. She was so professional, articulate, fun and knowledgeable. What made the biggest difference for me is that taught me the tools and safety procedures so that I was able to begin to surf on my own after 3 days. No other instructor has ever even taught me those things! It was so empowering and fun. I cannot recommend Leah enough as an instructor and am hoping to take more classes soon!

Such a calming, joyful experience
I had initially booked a surf/yoga sesh with Leah. However, when I wasn’t feeling super well, she was incredibly supportive and we shifted to a gentle yoga practice along with my first ever SE session. Leah was incredibly kind and professional and brought beautiful energy to the space. I felt incredibly safe and was able to process so much during just one session. Leah also guided me through a very nurturing yoga practice that helped me feel much more embodied and grounded. I look forward to one day learning to surf with Leah!
