Grateful Mom in Parkland, FL
It is with great appreciation and gratitude that I am writing to show my sincere support for Dr. Jessica Leon's work. Dr. Leon came into our lives last year to help our young daughter manage her anxiety issues in school and other social settings. She gained our daughter's trust and increased her self confidence through a series of play therapy and motivational therapy sessions. More importantly, she provided our daughter with easy to use psychological tools and practical steps to manage her anxiety on her own.
Dr. Leon's patience, enthusiasm and dedication will always be remembered. We will be forever grateful for giving our daughter a skill set and self confidence to handle whatever new situation life may throw at her without letting anxiety stand in the way of success.
a more balanced and understanding household
I would like to start by stating my sincere appreciation for your help over the past several months. What started out as a goal of helping our son cope with some of his negative tendencies turned into an opportunity for everyone in our household to reexamine our own mindsets. I believe that in the short time that you have been visiting us that we have made great strides in becoming a more balanced and understanding household. Thank you very much for your advice and council. It has had a great impact, and I feel comfort knowing that you will be there to help us all next year as we move forward as a family.
All my life, I have had the philosophy that I would never need a therapist. I’m a strong, independent, successful female with a good head on my shoulders! Even though, I had a troubled childhood, had been shifted back and forth between my grandparents and father. Had a mother that was addicted to heroin, that eventually took her life. What could a therapist possibly do for me, that I couldn’t do for myself? Well, after losing my fiancé of eight years almost 5 years ago and entering into a relationship with a man that had a complicated past relationship, etc. I found myself needing direction, clarity. I couldn’t seem to let go of my life with my fiancé who passed away, thus affecting my current relationship. I couldn’t seem to reconcile the relationship between my new partner and his only teenage daughter. I found myself wondering, after all that I’ve been through, is there something wrong with me that I can’t figure this out? I decided to call Dr. Jessica. I had met her in one of my networking groups and I always seemed to feel such a great energy from her. A light, a sense of peacefulness and a caring woman that helped people for a living. I broke down one day while I was on my evening run and called her. Little did she know, I had just finished crying my eyes out, just prior to calling her. She freed up her calendar immediately for me! I proceeded to meet with her every week for about 6 weeks or so and then every other week. What I found out is that, we can all use help sometimes. We all have room for improvement in our lives. And most importantly, it’s okay to say, “I need help”. In fact, even more so than saying, “I don’t need help”. Dr. Jessica used techniques that helped uncover things that had happened in my past, through my childhood, etc. that were affecting me today. Dr. Jessica taught me how to view things through a different lens. Dr. Jessica taught me the importance of revealing and acknowledging the positive in everything that I do and everything that is going on in my life. Focus on what’s good, not what’s bad. Simply shifting my perspective! Suddenly, everything came together for me and I felt for the first time, in a very long time, I could see clearly. I was able to put my life and my memories with my fiancé in the appropriate space that it belongs in. I no longer allow this to interfere with my current day life and I’m okay with that. It feels good to say this. As for my partner, I have recognized the value of myself and who I am. I have established my own boundaries and continue to stay true to what is best for me. Truthfully, I’ve never felt better and I owe this all to Dr. Jessica! Thank you for helping me to understand me and what is truly best for me in my life. You are an angel on earth! <3
"Dr. Leon Enthusiast"
I have a gifted son who wasn't able to control his over-excitability. Dr. Leon has been a great help in giving him the tools and life-skills he needs to be able to handle his emotions and deal with anxiety. She was very open to any new information I offered and was caring, patient, and willing to listen to both my son and my husband and I. My son continues to show improvement in handling his emotions and reactions, as well as his interactions with other children. She's been a great find for us, particularly since the therapeutic field in dealing with over-excitability in gifted children is relatively new. I would highly recommend her!!
Dr. Leon was referred to me by a friend when I was going through difficult times with my daughter. I really had no idea how my whole family would benefit from her. She worked with everyone in my whole family, individually as well as together. I can honestly say that the techniques and strategies that Dr. Leon has instilled have changed our family dynamics immensely. I think all the time how lucky I was to have found Dr. Leon and appreciate the lifelong effects she has had on my family and I. I always say "everyone should have a Dr. Leon" I am confident that whatever difficulties we may experience in the future that Dr. Leon will be able to guide us.
It seems so many times in life we fail to acknowledge those that make some of the greatest impacts on our lives. A letter, some small gift or even a simple thank you seem to evade our grasp despite what seemed at the time our best intentions. It is for this reason that I feel compelled to write a letter of recommendation about someone that has made a profound impact on my life in a very short time. I feel very fortunate to have met and become a patient of Dr. Leon. It is very rare that someone can help to facilitate such a dramatic change in such a short amount of time. Dr. Leon provides insight and advice that comes from a place of personal experience which has given me so much respect for her. She is truly someone that practices what she preaches. Looking back it’s hard to believe the changes that have happened in my life. One of the greatest tools she has given me is a coping mechanism that I am able to apply on a daily basis. It enables me to keep things in perspective instead of finding myself overwhelmed. She has taught me how to utilize the tools of technology which have been at my fingertips for years yet were seldom used. By using them I’ve been able to significantly increase my time management skills and my ability to keep track of daily tasks and goals that previously evaded me and seemed to get lost in space. This next statement alone is one which completely blows me away; within a two month period of seeing Dr. Leon I’ve been able to double my best sales month ever. By applying the skills I’ve learned I have been able to do things in my professional career that I never thought possible. I could go on about her but in closing I would like to say how truly wonderful it is to work with a therapist that I can relate to, not one that looks down on you or judges you. Dr. Leon is able to help identify those areas of improvement that can make a difference in your life and help you become that person you dreamed you could one day be.
Navigating Life's Obstacles
I am a mother of 2 young children, a business owner, wife of an addict and suffer from several medical conditions...and as I told my mother last week, I can honestly say that Dr. Leon has saved my life. I was in such a deep fog, I could not see the light. However, by working with Dr Leon, she gave me the confidence and coping strategies to pull myself out. I have seen therapists in the past, but nobody has the instinctual insight that Dr. Leon possesses, the ability to target the primary problem, and most importantly - how to navigate through that problem with actual coping strategies. I always feel like I can breathe for the first time in days after a session. And I have the tools to carry out my week. Dr. Leon truly cares, and reaches out between sessions to keep you on track. I feel better now than I have in years and I finally know, I will be ok. I can not only see the light at the end of the tunnel, I can reach it!
A Stronger Family
We wanted to thank you for all your hard work in improving communication and rewiring our negative thoughts over these past few months. It has made a tremendous difference in our overall happiness. You got right to the heart of what our family was dealing with and gave all of us age appropriate and productive tools to work with. As a result, we feel stronger and more confident as individuals and as a family. I think what we enjoy so much about our sessions is the flexibility depending on how we’re feeling each week. Whether one – on – one or as a group, your sessions have helped us understand each other much better and communicate more effectively. We also appreciate your sharing with us frameworks that we can use on our own. For example, the knowledge and ability for our family to recognize and squish those ANTS helps us grow long after the session is over. We are so pleased to have met you and look forward to many future productive sessions.
A Key Ingredient To Success
Fraser Property and Adjusting Inc. has over, the last two years, grown from a small operation housed in the closet of small condo to a successful multi-location company which is quickly expanding. There have been a number of professionals who have played a vital role in the success and growth of Fraser Property and Adjusting, one of them being Dr. Jessica Leon. Her coaching, advice and professional guidance have enabled top executives of the company cope with enormous stress and pressures as well as have taught them how to structure and manage a multi-layered work environment which fosters ultimate productivity and a sense of calmness and satisfaction among members of the staff. Dr. Leon has been a vital part of the growth process as well as the structuring of both the management staff and secretarial force. Her wisdom has helped enable this company to promote successful interpersonal communication on a daily level and also under intense stress levels. I would highly recommend her because she has been a key ingredient to the success of this company and I believe, to my own personal success.
In the OR
As I was wheeled into the OR last month, with my IV in, gown on and mind racing, I handed the nurse Dr. Leon's contact information because she is struggling with a special needs child. I feel SO fortunate to have Dr Leon as my therapist and life coach, that I pass her name to anyone that seems in distress. The nurse asked "is this for me or for my child", and I said "both :)". I am always so pleasantly surprised how well diversified Dr Leon is in therapy. She has helped me with anxiety, ADD, marriage counseling, life coaching, business coaching, parenting skills, being married to an addict, my struggle with pain and medical problems, and grief. I am so grateful
for the tips, coping mechanisms and strategies she has taught me, and hope everyone can benefit from her wisdom. She is a beautiful person, both inside and out.
