Leila has a B.S. in Neuroscience with a minor in Psychology, a M.B.A., a M.A. With Distinction in Counseling and Psychology, and ongoing self-study in neuroscience and neuropsychology. Leila’s approach to therapy focuses on a loving kindness path that explores both the logical and emotional factors that drive behavior, how our history has shaped who we’ve become today, and how the mind-body connection can be used as a tool in healing.
Additionally, an extensive background in business management affords Leila the unique ability to connect with the mental health challenges facing business professionals, enabling her to provide Executive Coaching services as well. This background is complemented by her many years of service in high-stress environments, including a teen homeless shelter, Tijuana orphanages, several years in the Emergency Room, and a brief stint in juvenile hall. Clinically, Leila has also worked in an Early Memory Loss (EML) program for those diagnosed with EML or Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) as well as a diversion program for youth and adolescents.
Leila is a published writer for several publications. She also serves as a volunteer Council Member for the Sameuli Academy Charter High School for underserved youth. Additional passions include yoga, teaching, public speaking, mentoring, and creative writing/spoken word. Leila is fluent in Farsi and conversational in Spanish. Leila is a Marriage and Family Therapy Intern supervised by Dr. Richard Granese, MD #A83535.
