I found Leah Mazzola online..and through the weeks, she helped me understand more about my personality type, the type of job that would suit me, and how to begin working toward finding a job that I loved. She brought me out of a very negative and discouraged place to a place where there was some hope and optimism for the future...

...Leah approaches every situation with a natural presence of strength. No matter what the problem, she is able to sort through all extraneous worries and unnecessary hassles in order to find a place to begin fostering solutions. My coaching experience was priceless. The motivation I learned by remaining receptive and open-minded to Leah’s support and encouragement helped me to bridge a gap in a very difficult time in my life....

Starting from a somewhat hopeless place, through Leah’s coaching, I was able to see the potential and abilities I still had. Working through strategies and plans together that would put me on a more positive straight path, helped me overcome some depression. Leah continues to encourage me and keep me looking for opportunities.

I’m Dr. Leah Mazzola. I appreciate your presence. If you’re here, you must be ready and willing to do something to set and achieve goals that matter to improving your life. That’s a valuable place to be. I’m a psychology expert. That means, I understand how thoughts, emotions, and behavior work together to create our outcomes. As a coach, I’ll apply that knowledge to listen without judgment and provide a safe, confidential forum where you can be real about what’s going on to find solutions that work. I'm also a trauma survivor who grew up in poverty, went through my wayward teens then shifted to became a first generation college student and create a life I didn't even dare to dream of before I knew it. I know first-hand what it takes to overcome adversities and create a healthy, successful life on the other side. We all start from where we are with what we have. If you start and how far you go is up to you. I'd be honored to support you through those most challenging places where you may otherwise stay stuck or give up.
