Book A Coaching Session

Hello, I’m Jennifer

Like you, I trusted my doctor and suffered a chemical brain injury from the benzodiazepine that I took as prescribed.

Now seven years off the drug, I educate people worldwide about benzos, as well as help them learn to cope with withdrawal symptoms.

If I can be of any help to you, please reach out.

I’m here for you,
Jennifer Leigh, PsyD

Is it a benzo withdrawal symptom?

Here is a list of the most common withdrawal symptoms. Seek medical attention if you want to rule out any other cause for your symptoms.



Healing With Love

New workshop January 14, to February 8, 2019


There are two states of being: fear and love. Everything falls into the trajectory of one or the other.

Fear destroys. Love creates. 

This workshop will delve into spiritual teachings plus neuroscience to help you better understand how to manage and cope with your withdrawal symptoms using love as your guideline.

Classwork will be on a page here on the website, and a morning (recorded) live video about the lesson will be on a private Facebook group. (You can ask questions/share during the morning videos.)

Class lessons and the Facebook group will remain open after the class ends so you can refer back to it.


Cost of the workshop is $56. 



“I highly recommend the acceptance workshop. It is worth ten times the price you are paying for it. It is so valuable, that I am taking it again.  Lisa M.

“Bringing acceptance far beyond its most basic definition, Jennifer explores its facets with clarity and purpose. I found her compassion and empathy, along with her sharing her own experiences, incredibly powerful. I’ve discovered that to truly understand and cope with this journey, it will take more than resting my tired brain and body; I must practice acceptance in order to build a healthier life.  John S.




Sacred Relationship

A unique, individual journey into the
heart of self-regulation and connection
for ultimate health and happiness.

It’s almost miraculous how much better your life becomes when you know more about how your brain and central nervous system works!
 Sacred Relationship, (based on Polyvagal Theory) is THE MUST KNOW information for better health and well-being. 

I’ll be sharing easy to learn lessons with you, one on one, for an hour each week for four weeks. Plus, you’ll receive written lessons. You’re encouraged to email with any questions or updates on how you are doing throughout the month.

This course is ONLY for people who are healed enough to follow the coursework and apply the information.

I will only accept a few people each month to teach this course as it is intimate and life-changing, and I want to make sure that my students have my utmost care and attention.

The cost for the month of coaching, the lessons, and emails is $495.

If you are interested, please message me below to arrange an intake interview to determine if this deep-dive, one-on-one, transformational workshop is for you, or to ask any questions about it.
