Hi and welcome to my site!

I'm Leigh Conant, LMFT, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with a specialty in couples therapy. 


My passion is to help couples create stronger connections and healthier relationships.


Additionally, I work with individuals assisting you in building the relationships you long for, whether it's your intimate or dating relationships, friendships, at work, with extended family, or with your inner self.


In my work, I come alongside your journey as a couple or individual expanding your capacity to understanding yourself and your patterns, manage life stressors, work through stress and trauma, and enhance resiliency. I also have extensive experience working with the military community. 

I am both a Certified Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist (EFT), and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP).

I earned my master’s of science degree from Virginia Tech’s Marriage and Family Therapy Program and am licensed in the state of Virginia and Louisiana.  I am an avid runner, biker, hiker, have a golden retriever I adore, and am a military spouse (married to a Marine!)
