Guided by Leah

Welcome to my ‘Guided by Wolves’ page. I’m excited to share my personal experiences on this journey while exploring other cultural value systems and environmental and relational dynamics that influence mental health.


I am a non-practicing psychotherapist with a graduate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. On my return from our travels I will be working towards licensure. During our journey through Mexico and Central and South America I’m exploring other cultural value systems and environmental and relational dynamics that influence mental health. I am also writing a book about anger. The book includes research collected throughout my clinical work and academic studies in psychology, as well as personal thoughts and life experience as a heavy metal musician, and other people’s thoughts on and/or experiences with anger.

My Blog

I like to write about all kinds of topics that come up for me as a result of our experiences on this journey. I hope you enjoy.

Stories of the Road

I have some experience being on the road as a former musician. I have also traveled a lot throughout my life. What I’ve come to realize is whether I am touring, traveling or overlanding it’s a lot like a nomadic life; always in new places, meeting new people in completely new environments. I hop you enjoy these stories of the road on our journey to Ushuaia, Argentina.

Personal Resources

Throughout my life I have accumulated and cultivated tools that have helped me cope, grow and then thrive. Over time these tools have served to de-clutter my head space and make room for more productive uses of my time and energy. These tools are relative to my life at home and even more important during times of travel. I hope you enjoy my collection of blogs on this topic.


My relationships are the biggest resources in my life, and I am forever grateful for them. I don’t know what I would do without my family and friends. And most of all, I do not know what I would do without my loving husband. He is my rock, my island.

Many of the overlanders we meet on the road have been couples and we are often curious about what makes their relationships as successful to spend many months, sometimes years on the road together. If you have stories of your own, please connect with us!
