Leah S. Heifner, MA, LPC, MHSP, Counselor in Powell
I am passionate about assisting individuals and families in growing to their fullest potential. I do not view an individual's problems in a negative manner, but believe that many obstacles can be used as opportunities to bring about positive changes and personal growth. A primary focus of my work history includes working with clients who have experienced loss and trauma. I also have extensive training in marital and family therapy. I have experience working as a group facilitator for FOCUS Healthcare and specialize in working with clients who struggle with eating disorders.
I present with experience and a background in supporting clients who have an interest in dealing with issues related to spirituality in the therapeutic setting. An important value I hold is to be respectful of each client's individual value systems.
My office location allows easy access to services for those who live in the Anderson, Powell, and Knoxville areas. My primary office location is in Powell near the Emory Road Exit.
