Leanne Sawchuk understands that the journey to a fulfilled life and embraced self shouldn’t be a lonely one. Specializing in addictions, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, body image, and trauma, Leanne connects with clients on a deep, personal level while offering a non-judgemental, safe environment. Acting as co-pilot on the route to positive self-exploration and healthy solutions for change, she brings a natural, compassionate approach to every one of her psychotherapy sessions, both individual and group.
A graduate of the Toronto Institute of Relational Psychotherapy’s intense three-year relational psychotherapy program and a member of The Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy (CAPT), Leanne’s experience as a therapist spans over nine years. Prior to the completion of her relational psychotherapy studies, Leanne completed a psychology and fine arts degree from York University. Her education in both fine art and psychology has provided her with a solid base throughout her career as both an art therapist and psychotherapist.
Leanne’s deep passion for helping others succeed mentally, emotionally, and physically stems, not only from professional experience and education but personal experience as well. Leanne is currently writing a book based on her personal route to self-healing. She also runs workshops on anxiety and fear as well as a workshop for parents and caregivers of loved ones who suffer from eating disorders. She soon will be launching group therapy sessions on body image. Leanne is also a passionate public speaker. Her natural ability to deliver value through purposeful information and personal insight helps stimulate change and positive development to an array of audiences. An advocate for a balanced life, Leanne enjoys spending her spare time hiking, going for walks, meditating, and being creative.
