Marnie Leahy


Marnie is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LCPC) and the founder of Best Self Inc. Marnie meets every new family exactly where they are at and assists with the planning process. This includes a discussion of problem areas, initial goals for therapy and a personal recommendation for the right therapist match. Marnie enjoys working with parents to form a deep understanding of their child’s unique profile and identify their individual needs. Knowing that parenting is equally challenging and rewarding, Marnie supports all who embark on this wonderful journey.

Marnie believes that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. She is proud to work alongside a team of clinicians who maximize their creative abilities everyday. Each therapeutic relationship is a collaboration, to develop that special set of strategies that will make the difference. Marnie is grateful for the opportunity to positively impact the life of a child and brighten the path to a happy, healthy future.
