Praise from our students and their experience at the Leslie Korn Institute for Integrative Medicine.

Dr. Leslie developed and delivered a customized course to support our highly diversified community needs. We called it Food for Thought. This course was one of the best learning experiences at KAUST Health. Dr. Leslie generously shared her deep knowledge about the relationship between what we eat and our health. She provided attractive materials and a booklet full of beautiful yet straightforward recipes. Overall the experience was excellent, and I am delighted to recommend Dr. Leslie to other groups and communities.

- Fatmah Hadadi, MS, Health Promotion and Wellness Director, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology

I have been processing our training for the past few days and want to express my complete gratitude.. I learned so much from you! Your continual openness and availability enhanced my experience. Your commitment to us; to our learning and to our understanding was so impressive. Equally appealing to me is your intentional, deep connection to service; to all people and their communities. This truly was a wonderful opportunity and I am excited and eager to begin applying the concepts we examined throughout the training. Your breadth and depth of knowledge are exhilarating. I hope that I am able to continue to learn from you.

- Jane Ross, LICSW,

I have taken many in-person and online trainings over the past 20+ years regarding CAM, energy medicine, and traditional neuropathic theory/methods. I am thoroughly enjoying your interesting, considered, and thorough program.

- Kathy Heuser, Psy.D., LPCC, Alternative Wellness Resources

I recently completed your most recent certification course on Integrative Medicine and Nutrition for PTSD and Complex Trauma. Thank you for offering such an in-depth course full of wonderful information to digest and utilize. I  appreciate how this knowledge has changed my life and how I now offer an integrative approach to my clients to help change theirs.

- Lynette Thorlakson, MFT, Kaiser Permanente

I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Korn’s presentation finding it rich with information, and she, herself, absolutely delightful to listen to. Her extensive knowledge, spanning diverse areas, is offered in an impressively warm and inviting format.

- Elizabeth Bergstrom, PhD, LMHC, Washington

Your work is so important to me. Speaks to my soul. Learning from you helps me become a better version of a practitioner.

- Melissa Fabreo-Montelongo,Board Certified Holistic Nutrition and Wellness Coach, CEO, Banyan Tree Women’s Collective

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.

- Ilyse Keeley, Licensed Social Worker, CMHIMP, New Jersey

I love the work of Leslie Korn! It broke my brain! This course opened up my mind to new information that changed my life, my family’s life and allowed me to enhance the life of so many clients.

- Allison Huffman, LMFT, WA

You are the Jane Goodall of integrative medicine and nutrition.

If you are looking for vibrant speaker and educator who assists you in applying integrative approaches while thinking both within and outside the box – look no further. Leslie Korn provides the full spectrum of medicine traditions, with applications to public health and clinical service. Leslie is one of the finest speakers and clinicians I have had the opportunity to train with and learn from. Her understanding of trauma, culture and the development of health is like none other. Leslie’s narrative engages audiences fully, meeting the unique needs of each group. Add to this, her integrity and ethics, with a dose of vibrant humor, her lectures and courses become everlasting. Her blend of gold standard research and a life time of clinical and cultural experience brings a unique understanding of the human condition, along with practical application of health principles in a variety of communities. Leslie shares her passion for health, vitality and the journey one takes to wellness. Every moment with her is worth its weight well beyond measure.

- Sandi Loytomaki, Integrative Medicine Practitioner Student, M.OMSc Osteopathic Manual Therapy, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Leslie Korn used storytelling for her keynote “Somatic Empathy: Restoring Public Health with Massage.” Korn captivated attendees with stories of her work collaborating with tribal communities in Mexico and the United States to restore touch therapies and nutrition from traditional foods, traditions that had dropped off in response to complex and historical trauma. “Their bodies told stories their minds longed to keep quiet,” she said. Without breaking from her storytelling style, she fed the audience data from many studies, shared techniques for healing that were evidence-driven, and made recommendations for future studies. It was a rare treat that set the mood for the day, acknowledging the intangible nature of massage alongside the evidence.

- Diana Thompson, LMP, Seattle

Dr. Leslie Korn has been my teacher, mentor, associate, and colleague for over thirty years. Leslie is a brilliant speaker, communicator, and a very skilled teacher who can take command of a class or group and move them to excellence. Leslie’s teaching and speaking gift combines dynamism, clarity and a wonderful humor all rolled into one. She keeps her audience/students engaged, allows for critical thinking processes, motivates positive responses and creates an exciting learning environment.

- Dr. Mary Jo Ruggieri, Former Olympic synchronized swimming coach and professor, The Ohio State University

Dr. Korn’s class took my clinical practice to another level. She goes beyond the traditional clinical considerations to helps practitioners guide their clients to better mental and physical health by implementing common sense nutritional strategies. This is the perfect training for any professional who wants to add nutritional awareness to help their clients improve their mood and their mental health. The mix of vignettes, knowledge sharing about the principles and practices of mental health and nutrition, charts, and recipes makes this course valuable and easy to follow.

- Jill Charney, MSW and yoga instructor, Boston

Leslie Korn is a terrific teacher. She is able to communicate her vast knowledge to her audience in a fun and dynamic way. Her positive energy and humor in combination with her ability to articulate complex ideas make her a wonderful speaker. We were lucky to have someone of Leslie’s caliber at our conference on Alternatives to Medication for Child and Adolescent Mental Health.

- Paula Ochs, LCSW, CP, PAT, Associate Clinical Director, Family Service League, Montclair, NJI

I am so grateful to have had Dr. Korn share her wisdom with the community. She has a wealth of knowledge in natural medicine and trauma and does extraordinary and admirable work here and abroad. Her continuing education presentation, ‘Rhythms of Recovery: Trauma Nature and the Body’ was a valuable resource for our members interested in non-pharmaceutical treatment methods. I encourage anyone interested in complementary and alternative medicine to familiarize themselves with Dr. Korn’s work, and I thank her for her wonderful contribution to our continuing education program.

- Noah Rubinstein, LMFT, CEO and Founder of

I was so impacted by your teaching and you personally at National College of Naturopathic Medicine, all those years ago. I’ve never forgotten. Your presence was very powerful and I resonated with it.

- Dr. Deirdre Orceyre, George Washington University Center for Integrative Medicine

The Nutritional and Integrative Medicine for Mental Health Professional course is a valuable introduction for occupational therapists that are seeking to increase their personal and professional competence in this area of practice. The themes of lifestyle change and empowering the client to take ownership of their wellness journey mirror our professional values and the evidence-based interventions are well within the scope of occupational therapy as a partner in the integrative health process.

- Dr. Muzna Ahmed, OTD, OTR/L. Doctor of Occupational Therapy, Intrepid Spirit Center

I found your recent PTSD training to be one of the best I’ve attended in some time. It was so good, so practical. Thanks so very much.

I am proud to have just finished your 18 hour online course on integrative medicine. I found it so inspiring to learn of your knowledge and all the benefits of the “Brainbow”. I specialize as a clinical psychologist in California and a board certified dance movement therapist – to me working with children and parents has always been an integrative practice of mind and body.

- Dr. Lori Baudino, BC-DMT, Licensed Clinical Psychologist
