Licensed Clinical Social Worker //

Leah Schumacher, LCSW 

 

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with the state of North Carolina.  I began my journey into social work and counseling after being honorably discharged from the US Army in 2006.  Due to a lengthy combat tour overseas in Iraq, I was able to gain firsthand knowledge and understanding about the devastating effects Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.  Close friends of mine were irrevocably changed before my eyes, and I needed to understand why that transition took place.  I utilized my G.I. Bill and obtained my Master’s Degree.  I have been in the social work field for over five years, working in various settings: veteran’s programs, residential treatment facilities for youth, outpatient treatment and a substance abuse treatment facility.  I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Trauma-Informed Care.

 

My belief is that real change can occur in one’s life when they work with a therapist who is genuine and unbiased; someone who has a desire to see others moving forward and living their lives to the fullest.  It would be a true honor to be that individual for you or your loved one.
