Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Leigh Lightfoot combines thirty years professional experience teaching theater and movement arts with her work as a therapist and teacher of psychology. She is a graduate of UC Berkeley, has a MFA in Dance from Mills College, and a MA in Psychology from California Institute of Integral Studies Somatics Program. She offers both short-term counseling and long-term depth work, weaving psychodynamic, cognitive, behavioral, and somatics approaches with guided imagery, sensory focus, and creative and meditative techniques. She is additionally influenced by Jungian perspectives which support exploration of personal narratives and collective myths, stories and symbols; and by multi-cultural spiritual and healing traditions. Her specializations include work with anxiety, grief, and depression; sexual abuse and trauma recovery; couples and family counseling; adolescents; personal development; life transitions; health support; and mind/body integration. Appointments are available in Berkeley and Ukiah offices, with sliding scale fee structures.

Karen L Kleckner, M.A..

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Walnut Creek, CA

At the core of many personal issues lie old messages of your sense of worth. Those messages conveyed to you while growing-up that minimized your self-esteem. The journey inward toward your past can often be frightening and disheartening. By slowly revisiting the wounded part of yourself, old repetitive behaviors can cease to exist. A new sense of kindness toward yourself will begin to emerge. Allow me to travel with you to discover what is buried deep inside of your soul, exploring what keeps you from becoming all that you want to be.
