Leanna Dopp - CSW - Utah
Are you feeling stuck? Like you want your life to move forward or look a certain way, but you just don’t know how to get there? It’s okay! The feeling of stagnation could be due to lack of motivation, anxiety, depression, grief, loss or low self-esteem.

I love connecting with people and facilitating the discovery of healing and empowerment that will lead to living a meaningful life.
I want to provide you with a safe space and listening ear to help you process your concerns and work through them. No judgement. I have experience working with teens, adults, couples and family units as they seek understanding and healing. I enjoy working with clients through mindfulness, ACT, EFT, CBT, DBT and motivational interviewing.
