What readers say

I think that this place is a miracle place for people with many different disorders and Dr. Leigh Richardson has a special heart. She is brilliant. She’s studied this and her compassion to help people is far above anybody I’ve ever met and I’ve been many different kinds of physicians and therapists. She doesn’t just want to be your therapist. She wants to fix you. She wants to make your brain better and get you to where you feel whole. Knowing that everything that I was struggling with was fixable changed my life. Nearly off every medication I have ever been on, Dr. Leigh has helped me heal my brain and I will continue to work with her to keep being the best me.

There are very few “cures” in life for those of us challenged with an array of mental and emotional health issues. I came to Leigh with attachment disorder, deep endless depression (the kind that swallows you up in a well you can’t crawl out of), Borderline Personality Disorder, Massive trauma from losing both my parents in the same 2 years, and losing my largest client. I told Leigh I had “piles” all around me I was paralyzed to attack, so the problems just grew and grew… creating even more stress and desolation. I read about LENS and LORETTA brain training and, even though expensive, I figured drugs and therapy costs (not that I could even handle THOSE any longer) and went for the intensive treatment. Leigh used a combination of LENS and Loretta treatments over my 10 days of 2 session per day treatments. My immediate feeling was that the “bottom of the well” was elevated to the point where I could feel like it was possible to be happy again someday. As the treatments progressed, miracles began to happen. I started “seeing” circumstances (and myself!) more clearly. No longer shrouded by self-hatred, I can now report I see my positive attributes, which had eluded me all my life. I am at peace now. I can be still and know that God is in control and all is well versus screaming at God all the time to rescue me. I am starting to spend my life in gratitude for the wonder I see in every day versus the black desolate landscape my life used to be. The piles are now gone, and my business is running RIGHT – the first time ever, really. I am excited to wake up every day to look for improvements and tweak the weaknesses. The treatments have given me the ability to make good, solid, balanced decisions about my way forward. Leigh sent me off that last day with that very blessing – and her blessing has come to pass. It’s truly a new life… And what price could I ever assign to these miracles? Thank you, Leigh. Everything you promised has come true. You are truly one of God’s Angels.

Six years ago I was in a terrible car accident that caused a brain injury. I started seeing Leigh to try to get past all the problems that happened with the injury. The journey hasn’t been easy, but she has helped me so much. I have been seeing Leigh now and using her treatment for 3 years and since the accident I have seen lots of improvement. One of my biggest struggles was my voice, I had lost so much of it in the accident. While I am still not a hundred percent, but it’s 70 or 90% better. I can’t explain how amazing it is to see that kind of progress. The biggest piece of advice I can give anyone facing any kind of trauma, or internal anxiety, depression or even learning disorder, you can get better. Even if the journey is slow. Just be persistent don’t give up.
