About Me

I have been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor for 20 years and I have extensive training in many populations, diversity, chronically mentally ill, and substance use disorders. My primary focus is here and now and identifying ways to incorporate new ideas and change in our lives. I use primarily cognitive and behavioral techniques with a focus on new neurological information as it relates to mental health. I am familiar with Meta Cognition and the approach that we have mindsets we can change, not spending hours on personality issues or going back to past history. Insight and reflection often needs to be mindful and in the present, allowing for our ability to identify appropriate needs and wants. The most important tool we have is an objective sense of self as well as an identity fitting with our culture and social needs.

I am a professional member of the AAPI Psychological Association and the National Latinx Psychology Association.

Leslie is amazing! She has a plethora of resources she shares that are all extremely helpful! We worked through a lot of trauma and she always made me feel very comfortable. 10/10 recommend

I've seen many therapists in different seasons of my life, but Leslie is the first one to really get to the root of all my issues and concerns. I'm now looking at myself from a completely different lens than I would have ever considered in the past. I'm quite impressed.

Leslie is a fabulous therapist and her years of experience and knowledge are apparent in her ability to identify and thoughtfully work through complex issues that surface in our sessions together. She is an amazing listener, a skilled communicator, and the guiding force that I need(ed) at a critical time in my life. I am SO thankful to have found her!

I enjoy the sense that she's traveled a similar path as me when it comes to emotional boundaries and communicative maturity.

She’s a great listener and really good at breaking down information, helps me understand the issue more. I’d prefer to keep paying for this service instead of going through my health insurance options. So much better!

Leslie has been nothing but easy to talk to. I went in with very little understanding on why I have been unable to dig myself out of this pit for so many years. After our first meeting, she had given me plenty of insight that has been a tremendous help. She has been an asset to shifting my thought-process into healthier version. I 100% look forward to continue working with her.

Written by A.L. on Feb 21, 2021 after therapy with Leslie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and bipolar disorder

Extremely kind, comforting, and very knowledgeable in my mental health diagnosis. Really excited that I found such a great person on my first try, that never has happened in my many years of therapy in person.

Professional, courteous and realistic all at the same time. Leslie has been a great resource for me as I moved forward to other providers!
