Leslie is a very solution-driven therapist, which helped me a lot in my journey. She's human and honest in her approach and breaks down any misconceptions one might have of a therapist / patient relationship. I particularly enjoy how Leslie ties in aspects of our sessions into one another to form a bigger picture.

Leslie has been great, very easy to talk to, very relatable. She isn’t offended by my candor, and I feel like I can tell her anything. I waited too long to begin therapy- and I’ve got a long way to go- but she encourages me and reminds me of the progress I’m making. Leslie opens up and shares vulnerability with me. I look forward to every weekly session. Highly recommend to ADHD adults, she really understands how our brains function.

Leslie does an amazing job and is incredibly thoughtful and thorough. She is able to get to the essence of what one is struggling with quickly, and her advice and perspectives on situations are second to none. I’ve made enormous strides in my life by learning from her and she is someone who will make a positive impact on many people’s lives. I look forward to working with her for a long time to come.

Work with me!
