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
Mornings With Jenn
Want more support as you navigate your way through benzo withdrawal? Join me for a live video
Monday through Friday, 9:15 a.m. Pacific at my closed Facebook page, Mornings With Jenn. Can’t join us at that time? No worries. All the live events are recorded and archived.
The group will be a place of positive focus. (It will not be a place to focus on symptoms or to spread fear and doubt.) I’ll discuss whatever topics people ask most about. I’ll also share some of the spiritual practices and neuroscience that is healing and transformative. (If you are uncomfortable with the idea of God, Higher, Power, Source, etc., this group may not be a good fit for you.)
The cost of enrollment for a month of support (about 10 hours of live video connection) is $69.00
NEW BOOKS TO HELP YOU HEAL
If you are off of your benzo, this journal will help you to keep track of your healing. You can make notations about your sleep, diet, exercise, distractions, spiritual practices, and more. A page of prompts helps you fill in your information quickly, and the proceeding blank page gives you room for your thoughts, sketches, doodles, etc. Be as creative as you’d like. There is also a section for doctors, therapists, and friends and family should you wish to share. I wish you all the best on your healing journey!

Healing With Love
Two Weeks: April 1 to April 12
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 live video about the lesson will be on a private Facebook group. (You can ask questions/share during the morning videos.) The video will be recorded and posted to the group.
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.
