• Hi, I’m Leah Rockwell.

    I’ve been told that my lovingly direct approach to the counseling relationship is what helps people.

    I am a healer, a friend, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a counselor, a listener, an advocate, a coach, a lover, a chef, an aspiring/failing gardener, a feminist, a grandchild, a caregiver, a storyteller, a truth speaker and seeker, and a work in progress, evolving each and every day. I’m a recovering perfectionist, I’m working on my co-dependent stuff, I definitely bite my lip too much because of anxiety, and I know what it’s like to second guess myself. I’m like you in that, these days, especially, I am taking it one day at a time.

    My Mission

    I have had the huge privilege of being born of, living with, working for, befriending, and loving many powerful, vibrant, take-no-shit women. As a working mom of two daughters, I feel great urgency to create a world in which girls can have access to the world that they deserve in which they are loved, respected, and compensated equally to their male counterparts. I want to make a world in which they never doubt their own value and a world that invites them to THRIVE. I also want them to encourage loving compassion within and across all genders.

    I opened Rockwell Wellness Counseling, LLC in August, 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic because it was critically important to me to initiate the healing that our world so badly needs. With so many women overburdened by caregiving roles, the call to create space exclusively for women to take time for themselves to explore, re-connect, and engage in meaningful ways with their inner worlds was screaming at me to take action. Deciding to leave a comfortable salary to take the risk to forward what felt like a personal calling and mission was terrifying as hell, but I feel deeply that it is the spark of one woman that ignites the spark of the next. Thanks to the encouragement of other female entrepreneurs I know, I lit a match for the women of our community, and I hope that the existence of a female-focused counseling practice will encourage other women to follow their own dreams.

    Utilizing a feminist therapy approach, I offer online counseling to women in PA and MD because we deserve to have access to online therapy that’s accessible, highly personalized, and works within the overly scheduled lives of women in today’s world.

    My Background

    I’ve been a helper for most of my life, working in schools and higher education, always with women, empowering them to grow and find their voices. I’ve worked with teens, young adults, and new parents, and my approach is consistently kind yet straightforward and honest. I’ll be sure that, through our time together, you’re getting direct and open communication. When we do this together, you learn to do it in all other areas of your life.

    My professional training is as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC); I am licensed in the state of Pennsylvania and board-certified as a National Certified Counselor (NCC) through the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC.) I received a Master’s of Education Degree in School Counseling from Shippensburg University in 2010, and then went on to complete my training in Mental Health Counseling, earning my LPC in May, 2017. I have completed post-masters work in a variety of areas, including working with challenging adolescents, supervision/mentoring, and positive psychology.
