Leah Giles, LMSW
Female issues: Adolescent and Young Adult
Anxiety and Depression
Leah is a Knoxville native and attended the University of Tennessee where she received a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and a Master of Science in Social Work, she is a Licensed Master’s Social Worker and is in supervision working towards being a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. During this time, she gained clinical experience working with children at Helen Ross McNabb and counseling adults at the YWCA. In both of these settings, she found her passion for the wellbeing of each individual as a whole: mind, body, and spirit.
This approach directly impacts how Leah interacts with and counsels her clients. She feels it is essential to address all of these components within the individual's life in order to create and maintain a balanced well-being. In this way, she hopes to journey with her clients towards a path of holistic healing.
In her free time, Leah enjoys being active outdoors; whether it be paddle boarding with her dog (Kydon), running with a friend, or going for a bike ride. Growing up in Knoxville, she became well acquainted with all of the beautiful trails and places to hike such as Ijams or the Smokies; and she takes pleasure in relaxing in God's creation - always with Kydon in tow.
