It’s like visiting six offices under one roof.
Leiya’s integrated team of practitioners works as a team to ensure your family has easy access to the best possible care. Our records are integrated and practitioners meet regularly to ensure that all care providers are on the same page about your child’s progress and treatment plan. No more driving all over town to various offices, waiting for appointments, or carrying the burden of sharing information with different practitioners.

The Leiya Process
Leiya’s first step is a comprehensive assessment. Our team prescribes an evidence based treatment track based on the needs of the child and family. Payments are taken care of via subscription. Embedded reassessment of treatment progress after each subscription plan ends.
We first met while pursuing our doctorates in Child Psychology. After finishing our post-doctoral residencies and working in a variety of healthcare settings, we started a thriving private practice together. Within a year, we could barely keep up with the demand. The longer families wait for care, the worse the outcomes for treatment can be. As our waitlist grew, so did our frustration.
We also saw how overwhelmed parents were with shuttling their kids to multiple practitioners and being responsible for sharing updates on their child’s progress and treatment with each one. We kept asking ourselves… How can we do better?
Dr. Uhl completed her pre-doctoral residency in the Department of Psychiatry at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland, CA and an APA-accredited post-doctoral fellowship in clinical psychology at Kaiser Permanente Richmond Medical Center’s department of child and family psychiatry.
After completing her post-doc fellowship, she received 2 more years of specialized supervision in the treatment of pediatric OCD and anxiety disorders. She remains committed to ongoing training in and disseminating the best of evidence-based care to kids and families. To this end, she has completed the International OCD Foundation’s certification program in pediatric OCD, and is currently in the first international cohort of clinicians working towards certification in Yale Study Center’s Supportive Parenting of Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE).
In addition to her clinical practice and training pursuits, Dr. Uhl has presented on pediatric anxiety & OCD at international conferences, and is on faculty at UC Berkeley Extension where she teaches courses on child mental health disorders and evidence-based treatment approaches.
Dr. Luby completed her pre-doctoral residency in infant mental health at the Institute for Child and Family Health in Miami, FL, and an APA-accredited post-doctoral fellowship in clinical psychology at Kaiser Permanente Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department in Santa Clara, CA.

In addition to her private practice, Dr. Luby collaborates with early childhood programs around the bay area and is a mental health consultant at the Mills College Children’s School, the oldest laboratory school on the West Coast.
Aside from her private practice, Dr. Luby has worked as a contractor for Lyra Health and Little Otter which have deepened her understanding of the competitive landscape and the scope of services that families need.
