About Leyla

Sheraton Kona Portraits-.jpg


Iā€™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. Sometimes we just need a guide or to quite simply do something different to create a change state and healing process.

I offer many years of experience and knowledge as a licensed therapist. My clinical background includes working in the jails, homeless shelters, and forensic systems back east and providing integrative counseling in my private practice for the past 11 years. I own Phoenix Rising Counseling and am now developing my Biofeedback and Neurotherapy clinic in Cody, WY. Recently the Lokahi Wellness Center was established as a space for healers and teachers.

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 in the global community. With a vast skill set that includes clinical hypnosis, EMDR, and training in multiple therapeutic modalities I am able offer unique treatment plans and sustainable strategies that help my clients move forward in their healing process. In the Big Horn Basin I have created the Lokahi Wellness Center to offer complementary health services and teachings to help create a healing community.

No matter where I go or what it is I am doing in the name of being of service my greatest accomplishment is being mom to two super kids and my tribe of dogs.

I am pleased to be offering the all inclusive Aloha Lokahi Retreats in Hawaii and the online Activation Coaching program. The personal coaching program and adventure vacation healing intensives are ways to work with me outside of my center in Cody, Wyoming. Let me help you create greater vision, clarity and healing for the best expression of you in your best life!

Having just completed the last Aloha Lokahi Retreat in May, 2019 I am excited to announce the next gathering in Kona, Hawaii. Join me for a healing and rejuvenating journey around Hawaii, March 7-13, 2020. Contact me here for further info or to register.

My years as therapist, personal seeker, shamanic practitioner, mother, adventurer, student and lover of life has prepared me to take my work out of the therapy room into the global lands. I am developing other retreat options and online coaching programs to grow the vision of creating unique healing opportunities.

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. Stay tuned for details about the 2020 Fall Equinox Peru Journey for an incredible opportunity to Grow Your Own Medicine!

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.
