A bit about: Leah Barrett
I'd like to help. I'm a trained psychotherapist: a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I've worked for over 15 years helping people struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, life transition and eating disorders. I'm a Master's Level Nutritionist. With over 20 years of experience in the field, I help people adopt healthy eating patterns for a lifetime, not a quick fix. I'm a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. I create exercise/fitness plans for individuals and work one-on-one in a personal training setting.
I am a Master Nutritionist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Personal Trainer. I've combined these three disciplines in order to best help individuals, groups and organizations better implement lifestyle changes by examining barriers to making change with a special emphasis on motivational interviewing. I hold certifications with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, YogaFit, Spinning and CrossFit in addition to CPR/First Aid and AED.
