Hello! I’m Leah
A Counselor in Training
A bio usually includes a list of degrees, years of service and other valuable ways to measure qualifications. The development of this website finds me just getting started on all of those things. I do however, have some experience. Since childhood I have had the formidable desire to step into the emotions of others. I run toward those who are hurting when some would run away. My husband and I were in full-time ministry for fifteen years and I served on a church staff for two years. More recently, three years working at Covenant College was a turning point. While administrative in description my job evolved into discipleship. Days filled with conversations sharing life with students renewed a calling in me that had previously lain dormant. Now, I’m working toward a degree that will help open doors in order to merge this area of personal giftedness and occupation.

Not only do we have to acknowledge where our parameters lie but we also need to respect the parameters of others. In addition to seeing where these invisible boundaries should exist, we then have to acknowledge how others may be encroaching in ways that are unhealthy.
I value your thoughts, let me hear them!
