Clear Brook Counseling Professionals

Leisha Ristau

Life is full of ups and downs, and sometimes we need a little extra support. Clear Brook Counseling Professionals provides a non-judgmental and supportive atmosphere for clients to work toward their goals. Leisha has been practicing therapy since 2011, and is passionate about working with individuals (age 12 and up) on common issues, including depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, and life adjustments. She also enjoys working with couples and families on relationship issues, communication, and divorce. Leisha utilizes a client-centered and a strength-based approach to support clients with reaching their goals.

Leisha graduated with her master’s degree in social work from the University of Northern Iowa and is independently licensed in the state of Iowa. Leisha is trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), a type of therapy that has been proven to decrease PTSD symptoms and challenge a person’s negative beliefs about themselves. She worked several years as a school-based therapist in Des Moines and Waterloo so she has experience working with common adolescent and young adult issues.
