DR EMILY HARTLEY: PsyD, PSYCHOLOGIST
“leaf’s group workshops on vulnerability cut to the core. I entered my first online group session with trepidation;
We were all afloat on the same raft, floating down a river of self exploration, poetically grasping at ideas for which we, as self-identifying men, had few existing words to describe.
Our river guide: Leaf – a skillful moderator who pulls from personal experience to guide the group through both troughs of sorrow and crests of hilarious embarrassment, while whiplashing everyone with both the absurd and the profound.
By the end, we all realized we had similar core struggles, even if those struggles produce their own unique ripples on the surface. We were all paddling in the same river.
By the end, we had all lowered our emotional shields.
By the end, I had a deeper understanding of myself.
By the end, I possessed a new set of tools to help me lower my shield,
if but an inch to start, for the river is long.”
“leaf is incredibly adept at meeting you where you are in your work: deftly guiding when that’s needed then letting you find your way when that’s available to you.
Meeting leaf was extremely serendipitous to me and I will forever be grateful for his compassion and love during one of the most difficult moments in my life.
