Our Associates

Diane Brady-Leighton LICSW has over twenty-five years of experience as a psychotherapist. Prior to working as a psychotherapist Diane worked in therapeutic recreation, which laid the groundwork for her whole person approach to care, and reinforced a deep value of the importance of play!

She has been fortunate to have in-depth training with Jon Kabat-Zinn (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction), James Gordon (Mind Body medicine), Geri Chavis (Poetry Therapy) and most recently The Partners in Resilience (Pathways to Resilience).

DianeBrady-LeightonDiane approaches her work from a foundation of respect for each person’s innate wisdom, and agrees with the poet Galway Kinnell that “sometimes it is necessary to reteach a thing its loveliness.”

Diane has special interests in creativity, spirituality and movement which is why she is so thrilled to be an Associate of the Partners in Resilience and a facilitator of their Pathways to Resilience program which invites participants to such a full exploration of their lives – body, mind and heart.
