Are you a highly sensitive AND highly ambitious person?
Are you caught between a desire for good health and vitality on the one hand, and a desire to dare greatly and launch into entrepreneurship on the other?
For a long time...so was I. Caught, I mean.
I spent the first half of my life only fostering my more ambitious side of myself. I got excellent grades. I climbed up the corporate ladder. I was a classic American Dream tale. The only trouble was...I was losing. My. Mind.
Anxiety. Insomnia. Depression. They were my bedfellows. I couldn't figure out why. What was WRONG with me?
After a ton of exploration...I figured out there was nothing wrong with me. I'm just a highly sensitive person. I process things deeply, get overstimulated easily, connect with others easily, and pick up on subtle changes in my environment.
Having made that discovery, I retreated. Retreated from leadership. Retreated from the busy Bay Area. Retreated from my dream to start my own company. All was pushed out to make room for my health and wellbeing.
I figured out how to master this slightly more sensitive nervous system. Anxiety and depression became things of the past. For the first time in my life...I felt FULLY ALIVE. It was awesome!
The only trouble was...well...now what? What is all that energy and vitality FOR?
I wanted fo figure out a way to stand at the intersection of financial stability, purposeful work, and physical/emotional health.
After spending over a decade of time and a sizable quantity of money in training...I figured out how to do it.
Now, I want to help OTHER ambitious, sensitive people create lives that allow them to have health, vitality, purpose and financial stability.
If that sounds like something you might be interested in creating for yourself, I would be absolutely delighted to speak with you.

Leah Burkhart is a life changing coach. Literally. I am so thankful for her presence in my life as she has given me support and tools in some of the most stressful times in my life. She has an innate ability to ask thought provoking questions and hold them in a space of non-judgement to evoke a persons innate wisdom in their own life. She is invaluable and irreplaceable.Katie Hodges
Leah is fantastic! I've started going to Leah for help with stress management, and even a year after our first session, I'm still using the tools she gave me to help with my stress. Leah's compassion and expertise has made her my go-to for life's overwhelming moments. I highly recommend her!Rikki

She has a deep set of knowledge in so many subjects, from relationships to health and fitness, I feel like I could ask her for advice is any areas of my life! She is gently, compassionate and empathetic and will meet you where you are. I highly recommend Leah as a health coach for anyone who wants to make lasting changes and having an advocate on your side!
