 I’m certified in Mental Health First Aid, but not a licensed therapist. What I share is from my own experiences with depression, grief and trauma. I recognize that we each have unique journeys and need different tools to thrive. You know what’s best for your own healing.

I am a writer, artist, self-defense instructor, social and environmental activist, and mental health advocate living in San Diego, CA. My life goals are to enjoy life and be part of those who are creating a healthier, all inclusive culture on our beautiful planet.

Peace and hugs, Leah

  1. Enjoyed reading your blog and your comments at totsymae’s. Your personality is attractive and reflects what I believe to be a beautiful personality.



  2. I am an ex-drug dealer, gang member, and ex-con who, in the mist of my incarnation, have changed my life and is now attending UTA. I need your assistance in starting a non-profit organization geared towards preparing inner city youth for a higher education. I have a desire to fix what I was instrumental in destroying… Please help!


    1. First off, thank you for wanting to give back to others and for sharing your story. That is inspiring to hear. Since you have been through the system you are now an awesome example that it is never too late to turn your life around.

      Since I don’t live in Texas I suggest finding a mentor in your area that would be willing to work on this project. I am not sure how far Pflugerville is from you, but there is this amazing woman named Deborah Orr who mentors youth through literature. She might be able to help or connect you with someone who can. http://outreachlibrarians.org/about-us/

      Here are two mentors I would suggest connecting with or studying, even though they are not in Texas.
      Ron Tinsley who mentors young men, https://impoweryou.org/2013/03/04/role-model-ron-tinsley/
      Christoher McFadden of the Philadelphia Youth Project, https://impoweryou.org/2013/04/08/christopher-mcfadden-pyp/. Both have done amazing work for the youth in their community.

      It takes a lot ot start a non-profit including money, but you can start a program without NP status if you are really determined. Either way it is good to be informed of all your options. Check out this site that has info on how to start a non-profit in TX. http://www.startnonprofitorganization.com/starting-a-nonprofit-in-texas


  3. Hi Leah!

  4. Hi, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I know you already have this award, but I enjoy your blog and hope you don’t mind that I included a link to it on my post Blog-O-Rama.


  5. Leah,
    I just wanted to stop by to let you know that I am bestowing another award upon you,The Very Inspiring Blog award! You are very much deserving of it and I just wanted you to know how much I enjoy your blog and how much I appreciate what you are doing for girls and women too, I think it’s amazing. If I wasn’t a starving artist I would definitely be contributing towards your book publication fund! Feel free to accept this award or just relish in the fact that I think your blog is great and you, very inspiring 🙂 I have just published a post about it on my blog where you can find out more about it.


  6. Your work with young girls sound wonderful. I love the title to your book. I will try and check it out. Your art is beautiful as well. You are certainly an inspiration. Along with my art I too have worked with those in need. Individuals with disabilities and special needs. It is a honor to have found you and your blog.
    Peace and Light


  7. Hi Leah, thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving such great comments on there. I would love for you to write about self-defense for young women for Marinagraphy/Empowering Girls and Women. Maybe I can write something for yours as well. It’s exciting that you are so empowered that you have started your own business, blog, and writing business. Thanks for the support, know you have mine, and keep in touch.
