She believes that substance abuse disorder is a serious mental health condition that should be treated accordingly.

Leah's clients grow immensely by developing a venue in which they are free to express themselves and process difficult experiences and emotions. On the marketing end, while writing web content may not seem like the most thrilling job, Leah presses that access to trustworthy information about these topics can be life-saving. She feels this is important work to be doing.
