Pursuing Peace During Uncertain Times

July 09, 2020
3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Zoom Meeting

Please join SMPS Charlotte in welcoming Psychotherapist Leah Marone as she is hosting this special virtual event focused on how to Pursue Peace During Uncertain Times

  • How do we remain effective and efficient in our tasks while maintaining consistency? 
  • How do we re-frame what our productivity looks like now? 
  • Can we avoid the anxiety and mood shifts that may seem overpowering? 
  • How do we stay connected with others while maintaining healthy boundaries?  


These are all questions that Leah will address during this special event, focusing on how we grapple with working through COVID.  Leah’s session will be followed by open discussion and break-out networking groups.


Meet Leah

Leah Marone is a psychotherapist who specializes in anxiety, depression, grief/trauma, and sports psychology. By having a variety of clinical roles in various states and countries, she has developed diverse professional experience and global perspective. Currently, Leah sees individuals and families at her practice in Charlotte, NC. She is also sought out by corporations to work with executives and teams on improving communication, productivity and job satisfaction.

Leah grew up in Indiana with a basketball in hand. Sports not only encouraged growth on a number of levels, but the experiences challenged her to become more comfortable with vulnerability.  She completed her Masters in Austin, TX and then proceeded to allow the "travel bug" to take over. Her passion for adventure has not dwindled, simply morphed with motherhood.  Leah and her husband strive to provide their two daughters with the tools to gain confidence to seek out their own adventures every day.

The Zoom link will be provided to all registered attendees at 5:00 pm on July 8th.
