Westport, MA – Leah Marie is The Mind Health Coach, specializing in holistic stress management for families affected by the challenges of dementia. For over a decade, Leah has worked with families struggling with dementia and Alzheimer's to employ strategies that assist them in gaining a sense of peace.

“It's shocking when these types of behaviors happen, but it's because they're stressed and they don't know how to communicate effectively anymore,” Leah explains. “Their brains are not working correctly; it’s feeding them wrong information. It is so important that families understand that their loved one hasn't changed as a person and that they just aren't able to utilize their judgement center as effectively anymore because of the disease process."

Leah was inspired on this path following a near-death experience.

“I had to look for other means to recover from my experience,” recalls Leah. “That's when I started meditating. Then I learned emotional freedom technique. Essential oils are great. Yoga is just amazing. The self-care that happens with Ayurveda is so powerful.”

“I want to make sure that I fulfill the reason why I was brought back. Helping others in any way that I can is really important to me so I'm fully stepping into the role of really helping people before they get Alzheimer's and dementia. I think it's a matter of lowering stress, looking at diet, lifestyle, and being proactive about not only their overall physical health, but their brain health as well.”
