Leah McDill, Ph.D.
I enjoy working with individuals to address boundaries, negotiation of power in relationships, conflicts in intimacy and/or spirituality, shame, grief & loss, and those adjusting to a diagnosis of a chronic medical issue (as I am a Type-I diabetic and a 2x cancer survivor). I invite clients to consider how past relationships influence current relational patterns and how these often influence current anxiety and depression. I pursue this by a) grieving past pain, and b) focusing on a client’s internal resources to help manage his/her greatest fears and unmet fantasies. Lastly, I enjoy teaching graduate students at Texas State University and training LPC-Interns on how to integrate Christian faith within the therapy process here at New Life. Taking clients at our North location.
