Leigh Belcher has been working in the helping profession for over 20 years. She received an undergraduate degree from Samford University in Human Development and Family Studies and history in 1997 and a Masters in Counseling in 1999 for Georgia State University. Through various roles in the helping profession, she has developed a cognitive behavioral approach to address addiction and other co morbid diagnoses. Leigh is also trained in DBT, EMDR, trauma, and grief. She believes in the importance of meeting others where they are in their process and developing an individual plan strongly rooted in the 12 Steps and trauma-informed therapy to assist women through the process of navigating recovery. Her passion is to create and implement programs that assist others in being their healthiest self. Leigh believes that the Reprieve for Women is just such a program as it addresses all facets of a person as they begin to heal emotionally, physically and spiritually. Outside of work she is in love with her puppy, Tallulah Mae, and enjoys being outside, live music and a good book.
