Jennifer Leigh, PsyDBenzo Withdrawal Coach & Educator
Dr. Jennifer Leigh
Coach. Educator. Author.
Hope. Help. Healing.
After I earned a doctorate in psychology, I became a coach. As an award-winning author, I appeared on national radio and TV and my work was showcased in top newspapers and magazines. I was vetted for my own reality show and Psychology Today asked me to be a contributor. But that career came to a halt when I had a life-threatening brain injury due to a benzodiazepine I took as directed by my doctor. I blogged honestly about my ordeal, sharing my experience with others. Now recovered, I help people around the world who are in benzo withdrawal.
I have a doctorate in psychology, trauma training under Dr. Peter Levin and Bessel van Der Kolk, post-doc education in social neuroscience, certification in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University, and certification in the Gut Microbiome.
I am on a crusade to reduce suffering in the world by helping people recover from benzo withdrawal and to help them go on to live their best lives ever.
