Education & Experience

Received my MS in Counselor Education in 2005 and became trained in EMDR 2008. Was in private practice for years in Casper WY with my Neuropsychologist husband Dr. Bruce Leininger. That is where I became experienced with clients with chronic pain, traumatic brain injury, and families of dementia patients. Also honed my skills as a trauma counselor and started using technology assisted therapies to address ADD/ADHD, sleep disturbance, anxiety and depression. We moved to Cheyenne in 2011 to work with Veterans and Service Members. I then had the great privilege to work with Soldiers and their families while working at the WY ARNG. I continue to serve many of our men and women in uniform and their family members now that I am in practice. I have a passion for assisting clients reprocess and desensitize their traumatic memories with EMDR so they can live life more fully. I am now in private practice as a Certified EMDR Therapist, EMDRIA Approved Consultant, and EMDR HAP Facilitator.
