For People With Diabetes

Anxious, Frustrated, and Overwhelmed with Diabetes?

Without emotional health, the best technology and pills won’t do us any good. I have diabetes: I’ve lived your fears and worries, but they no longer throw me into emotional turmoil. I’m here to help you find peace and live the life you desire no matter what.

Know Yourself, Know Your Diabetes

I don’t believe in a one size fits all view of diabetes management: I work with you, where you are right now, to determine what’s appropriate for you. I don’t care what your A1C is, and I don’t blame and shame you; I’m here to help you feel better and move forward. If you are looking for help, or even just to chat with someone who understands, contact me today.

Just Keep Swimming – Or Standing

I’m not taking this sitting down anymore. Everything I’ve learned over the past 15 years in terms of mental coping was put to the test. I believe that we all need each other to share what really helps us find our way forward in unpredictable situations. Diabetes has driven home that fact that control is an illusion and given me the unanswerable,lifelong question “So what are you going to do about it?”

Alone with a Low Blood Sugar

I sit at my desk shaking and sweating, sure signs I’m going low. I don’t have to open my desk drawer to look at my cgms, but I do just to see how low go. I push the button and stare down, but no thought follows my action. 80 mg/dL, double down arrows on my CGM, which means in reality I’m probably around 60-something since I know the CGM is slightly behind my real-time blood sugar.
I’m worried now.

Leann What I Do

What I Do

I offer emotional support and practical help in living  life with diabetes. What do you do if you have all the information in the world, but no idea where to start? What if you feel alone in a pile of pills, test strips and data and would love to talk to someone who understands?

Who I Am

My mission is to create a supportive environment that works with your emotional needs and integrate that into your day to day management of diabetes.

“Working with Leann was like talking to my best friend, my wise aunt, and a psychic in one. She knew exactly what I was thinking and didn’t lecture me like I was afraid of. I left our sessions feeling like I had control back in my life and wasn’t anxious about every little thing anymore. She listened to me in a way that only rivals my dog. ”

T., Indiana

“I thought I needed help with my diabetes meal plan, but I really needed emotional support because I really wanted to do nothing for my diabetes. She helped me uncover why no diet would work for me and why I hated all of them. I was facing going on insulin and didn’t want to do that at first – I am so glad Leann helped me then! I learned that I can do more than I thought because I really thought that this is all too hard. Leann is friendly and open and wants you to do all the talking. Somehow she makes the overwhelming seem simple. I wish I would have found her years ago!”

S., Northern Virginia

“Leann makes diabetes seem not so scary and I even improved in areas of my life I hadn’t thought were lacking. I never thought that was possible – call her if you are sick of diabetes and need help! You’ll just feel better!”

V., British Columia
