“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.”

"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
"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."
"The content and your teaching style helped keep me motivated and hopeful for the type of clinician I have always wanted to become.
I am very excited to continue learning and to begin using the practical tools you offer, based on such extensive research and clinical experience."
Dr. Dara Goldberg
"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."

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.

She keeps her audience engaged. allows for critical thinking processes, motivates positive responses and creates an exciting learning environment."
Dr. Mary Jo Ruggieri
"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
"Leslie Korn is a terrific teacher. She is able to communicate her vast knowledge to her audience in a fun and dynamic way. Her Leslie’s 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
I am so grateful to have had Dr. Korn share her wisdom with the GoodTherapy.org 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.

"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
"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
"Dr. Leslie Korn is a pioneer in the integration of mental health and nutrition and continues to lead the field. As an educator and an author, she has mastered the integration of the latest science and skillfully mentors other professionals drawing on her decades of clinical experience. Dr. Korn never stops learning and she never stops teaching. I highly recommend her courses and her books!"

"I have no words to express how excited I was to find your Integrative Medicine Certification and how happy I am for completing it. I am a licensed psychologist and have experienced frustration in not knowing how to come out of the closet.Your training has given me hope and inspires me to re-write my Bio and re introduce myself to the world and beginning to incorporate all my gifts for the good of others in need."
Ericka Juarez, PhD
"Thank you, thank you! I just completed this online certification course and I thought it was outstanding. I describe myself as a mind body spirit practitioner and use many of the checkpoints that you incorporated into the course, but certainly not to the degree that you do. I’m very inspired and excited and grateful"
