About Leyla


I’m Leyla Dim, a licensed counselor of many years, fellow seeker, and a lady on an adventure to create a meaningful experience

I believe having a felt sense of a meaningful existence is imperative.  We often lose sight of a greater vision in our lives. I help others release, regenerate and re-write limiting beliefs and old stories to step into deeper connections in their relationships and within.

I offer years of experience and knowledge as a licensed therapist and own Phoenix Rising Counseling and Integrative Services in Cody, WY. Having been in the field for many moons, with many of those in private practice I have a vast clinical and metaphysical background that I am now synthesizing. On the land I think of myself as a therapeutic sha’man as I help others bridge their consciousness, activate a change state, and integrate the mana back to the mainland while having fun!

My clinical background includes working in the jails, homeless shelters, and forensic systems back east,  many years providing integrative counseling in my private practice, and more recently developing a unique “electro-medicine” business utilizing the most recent neuro-technology to help with a wide variety of issues.I have spent years studying, applying and expanding on my understanding of complementary mind-body  medicine, clinical hypnosis, biofeedback technology and energy paradigms of healing.

Having a vast spectrum of experience, knowledge and understanding of spiritual process I am now synthesizing with my clinical foundation to offer unique coaching programs and personal development retreats.  I understand us, as human beings, on multiple energetic dimensions. I have found in my own journeys that when I do my personal work on the land, she teaches on multiple levels. The stories teach, the land activates, and we learn how to integrate. What do you want to leave in the Valley?

I am taking what I do in the office outside to guide group retreats, personal intensives and spiritual workshops. I believe the group process and teaching community can be powerful and offers us tremendous instruction about our own journey. As an experiential coach and retreat facilitator I've created multiple custom packages and programs to help as many as I can discover their truth and authentic life path.  Book a discovery call to see if you’re ready to be activated!

I am pleased to be offering the Aloha Lokah Retreats and personal shamanic healing intensives around the Big Island as my newest offerings. Having just completed the first Aloha Lokahi Retreat in September, 2018 I am excited to announce the next two dates for 2019. Join myself and Barb Morgenweck, a certified yoga teacher for a shamanic yoga journey around Hawaii, May 4-10, 2019.

My years as therapist, personal seeker, sha’manic practitioner, mother, adventurer, student and lover of life has prepared me to take my work out of the therapy room and into the land. Bridging cross cultural and dimensional wisdom teachings helps us to look at our own mythology. Collaborating with other unique teachers and local talents offers a truly authentic experience that changes from one retreat to the next. We return home feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and regenerated with wider vision.

I describe myself as a life adventurer- a collector of experiences and travel. A therapist by trade and coach in action.  As a healer and teacher I am honored to be of service in many ways to help others activate, recalibrate and integrate wider vision into their daily experiences. And have A LOT of FUN along the way! Come talk story with me at the next Aloha Lokahi Retreat.

It would be my pleasure to connect with you.  Don't hesitate to reach out.
