The Advanced Integrative Medicine consultation group allowed me to work with Dr. Korn directly over a significant period of time. Doing a deep dive on one case for an entire hour allowed me to apply the BrainBow Blueprint model in a safe learning environment. As a busy therapist, one hour a month for a year was minimal commitment with maximum client impact. Dr. Korn has the knowledge of an encyclopedia (or two!); and also has the heart of a teacher and mentor. I now conduct integrative intakes for all of my clients and I feel confident in prioritizing care and making recommendations.
Dr. Leslie Korn is a renowned expert in integrative medicine for the treatment of trauma and its physical sequelae including chronic digestive illness, insomnia, pain, substance abuse, diabetes, cognitive decline and “unexplained illnesses”. She has provided over 65,000 hours of clinical care integrating psychotherapy and somatic therapies with nutritional, culinary and herbal medicine. She completed her training at Harvard Medical School and The Harvard School of Public Health. She is licensed and board certified in 4 clinical disciplines. She has been faculty instructor at Harvard in the department of psychiatry and faculty at 2 Naturopathic medical schools. She lived for 25 years in the jungle of Mexico, where she worked alongside indigenous healers and directed a pro bono health center. Her clinical practice focuses on helping clients who are ill with restoring their health and reducing or eliminating medications.
Her mentoring practice focuses on helping clinicians create a successful, integrative medicine, trauma- informed career. Her ethic of compassion and care is informed by feminist values of social justice and her love for dogs.
