Leigh Richardson has studied human behavior for over 30 years. Her initial focus was on organizational behavior then shifted to human behavior in 2003 after her son had a traumatic brain injury. Leigh has been in ICU twice with brain injury and all of this fueled her need to understand how the brain works or why it doesn’t work. She can relate to brain dysregulation on a very personal level and she visualized what could be done for many others like her.
Leigh is founder and clinical director of The Brain Performance Center utilizing her MBA, MS, Counseling, and board certifications to offer state of the art solutions for “brain problems.” She is now in the PhD Psychology Program at Walden, with an estimated completion in 2024. The Brain Performance Center is a brain and mental health clinic specializing in a combination of psychotherapy programs like counseling and performance coaching, and neurotherapy treatments like neurofeedback and bio regulation therapy.
As a brain health expert, Leigh regularly contributes to radio and television stations across the nation. Whether it is anxiety, ADHD, depression, insomnia, or brain injury, Leigh’s understanding of the brain and the different methodologies that can be used to organically change the brain is immense. And more importantly, they will provide the right solution for the problem. Leigh has a unique ability to connect with people, understand their situation, and win their trust.
Leigh is the author of Turn Your Brain On – To Get Your Game On, an international speaker, and a popular syndicated radio host. Leigh enjoys educating the general public on how the lifestyle choices and environmental factors impact brain health and the physiology and psychology of your mental state.
Leigh gets inspiration from her friends, family, and clients. It is the positive change that she sees in others that motivates her to continue to learn. She just recently converted her upstairs office to an in-home art studio where she paints as a way to explore her creativity.

“It’s amazing how when you can get people to get in touch with their senses and they get very peaceful. I work with athletes and they say the same time thing. When I am at my best is when I’m calm and focused.” — Leigh Richardson
