Hi everyone! My name is Leigh Skal, LICSW. I received my BSW and MSW from Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts. I have over ten years of experience in the social work field. I have worked in the school systems, as well as at state and private agencies.
I am currently working as a contract clinician in the private practice sector. I also recently began teaching as adjunct in the social Work field at a college level and enjoy this work immensely. I believe both my variety of experience as well as my dedication to my clients shapes the person I am today. I have a passion for helping my clients in pursuing happiness and finding authenticity in themselves. I believe everyone has a right to happiness and I enjoy guiding people on this journey as they seek their true potential.
My practice approach focuses on the use of mindfulness and identifying measures to allow a person to appreciate the positives in their lives. I find that humor and happiness occurs when we learn to let go and shift our perspectives.
I am excited to be part of this team and to start working with clients.
