VETERAN SPOTLIGHT Leah Schumacher is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with the state of North Carolina. She began her journey into social work and counseling after being honorably discharged from the US Army in 2006. Due to a lengthy combat tour overseas in Iraq, Leah was able to gain firsthand knowledge and understanding about the devastating effects of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Her close friends were irrevocably changed before her eyes, and she needed to understand why that transition took place. Using her G.I. Bill, she obtained her Master’s Degree. Leah has been in the social work field for over five years, working in various settings: veteran’s programs, residential treatment facilities for youth, outpatient treatment and a substance abuse treatment facility. She has training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Trauma-Informed Care.

Leah’s belief is that real change can occur in one’s life when they work with a therapist who is genuine and unbiased; someone who has a desire to see others moving forward and living their lives to the fullest.
