“I understand the toll all the things you have to deal with, raising a child with allergies takes on your mental and physical health.”
In 2017, I had a career in marketing, a seven-year-old son with eight anaphylactic food allergies, along with a history of anaphylactic reactions to latex and penicillin, and an active five-year-old. I was like many food allergy parents stressed over how to balance work, normal family responsibilities, and keeping my son safe and included at school and social activities. What I was looking for did not exist.
I left my marketing career behind and took my years of learning as a food allergy mom to become a food allergy expert. I went back to school and completed my Master’s in Child and Adolescent Psychology while conducting outreach programs for the Food Allergy Research & Education Organization. In short, I became the expert I needed.
I work to provide support to food-allergic individuals, their families, schools, communities, workplaces, and advocate for safe inclusion while reducing the stress and anxiety that can come with living with a food allergy.
Let’s connect so I can help you, your family, and community.
Leah Robilotto, PsyM
Leah’s personal drive to support other people whose children suffer from allergies is admirable and inspiring. She faces uphill battles constantly with school systems and bureaucracy, but somehow has the grace and motivation to keep her eye on the most important aspect – keeping children safe. She is thorough, smart, and efficient and is an incredibly reliable person for answers.
Leah was able to help me navigate through my questions, feelings, and gave me great insight about what my boys are going through as well. I appreciate that Leah practices what she teaches and relates to you personally. I highly recommend her services as she can give you the tools you need and the confidence to feel successful throughout this journey.
