About – Heal Something Good


February, 2024: This website holds the healing manual I wrote about a decade ago, first published in 2014 (under the name Leah Peterson Crawford), which I used as a guide for my clients at my wellness center in San Diego, CA. I’m currently revising it with the latest health, science, and nutrition information available. You’ll know if the page you’re reading has been updated if it says so at the bottom.

In 2023, my partner and I joined a nutrition study called Zoe, the results of which changed the way we both approach foods, based on how our bodies need and use nutrients. I’m sharing more about participating in that study and the results over on Substack. (This is not a paid ad for Zoe. I do absolutely recommend joining their study if you can afford to.) The original recipes found on this website lean very strongly gluten-free and Paleo. I’m (slowly) adding newer recipes which represent the plant-focused diet I eat now, which includes much less meat and whole grains.

Welcome, Friends

My name is Leoh Blooms (he/they/she). I’m a mentor, Pro Dom, writer, and artist who is passionate about learning, sharing, and empowering others to live their best lives. I’m so glad you found me!

My mentoring focuses on intimacy, mental health, gender, sex, and practical self-care. I help clients understand where these major components of life converge and how our responses to them impact our ability to feel joy.

I use a variety of healing modalities in my mentoring practice with clients including energy work*, practical self-care, mind/body connection, trauma/emotional processing, kink (25+), and power dynamics (25+). As a trauma-informed energy practitioner*, certified Holistic Health Coach, and mental health advocate, I hold the journey my clients are navigating as sacred. I am committed to cultural humility and recognize how white supremacy, institutionalized racism, and injustice impact the body/mind and contribute to illness in many forms. I stand behind equity and try daily to do less harm than the day before.

As one of the first bloggers (Over 22 years of writing can be found right here.) to speak openly about mental health online in 2002, it was a privilege to pave the way for deeper and more open conversations about mental health and stigma impact. Being asked by Diablo Cody to be a consultant on the Showtime series, United States of Tara, where (a highly fictionalized version of) my life was used as a springboard for the main character was a transformative moment. I truly felt the importance of my voice and experience.

I use writing and painting as healing arts and encourage my clients to find and blend modalities that work for them. Weaving nurture and care of others in mentoring, along with my writing and art, fills me with joy.

My writing (mostly under my legal name, Leah Peterson) is available here and my art can be viewed here. You can watch videos of me talking about working with clients here.

*My relationship with being a Reiki Master has changed over the years. While I do use my own personal type of energy work in my practice with clients, which includes what I learned during the nearly four years I trained to become a Reiki Master, I no longer give attunements to others. I became passionate about Reiki when I believed my family genealogy included indigenous peoples. The Reiki Master I learned from had lineage that was similar to what I believed at the time was my own, along with Japanese lineage and training. That family myth has since been disproven via genetic testing. I refuse to knowingly contribute to the harm done to other cultures by white colonization and spiritual bypassing.
