Since beginning my journey as a Clinical Psychologist, I have been fortunate to have worked in a variety of settings, including a Mental Health Day Treatment program for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, a Mental Health Outpatient program, and a University Counseling Centre. I have been in Private Practice since 2005 and developed Dr. Leah Clyburn & Associates in 2012.
I use empirically-validated approaches to therapy and am continually updating my skills and knowledge of the research. Although I have strong foundations in Cognitive-Behavioural and Mindfulness approaches, I tailor the treatment to the individual needs of the client.
I believe the benefits of therapy depend on a strong therapeutic alliance grounded in trust, authenticity, and connection. I have a down-to-earth style and it is important that my clients feel comfortable and free of judgment. I believe it is a privilege to be witness to my clients' journeys through self-discovery and transformation. They have been my greatest teachers.
