Maureen Leigh

LMFT, Arcadia Supervisor

As individuals we all yearn to connect and be part of a relationship. We are products of our families, never learning the necessary tools to be in a healthy relationship. Our blocks prevent us to grow. All relationships are not perfect but if we do not take the time to learn about ourselves, we will go into a relationship less whole than when we were alone. Therapy takes time and having a safe place to allow that process to unfold is just as crucial as the desire to change. Read More

Asking for help can be challenging, especially asking for help outside of your community, being friends, family, neighbors, etc. Especially the use of therapy as a help seeking tool can in itself be taboo, scary, or simply just something unknown. Personally, coming from a family where dusting yourself off and getting over it was the advice given, it is ironic that I have pursued a career in a therapeutic setting. Read More
