My belief is that everyone has the capacity to change, confront challenges and grow each day. Therapy is a tool that can help people find their capacity to change. My counseling practice respects that power to change in each person. My counseling approach is rather eclectic involving both client centered and existential theory. I utilize a personalized approach combining interventions from Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused CBT, motivational interviewing and choice theory tailored to meet your individual needs. I am passionate about working with clients and helping them discover new, healthier ways to address their mental health needs. When appropriate spirituality is infused in the counseling process. Treatment is data driven and evidence based.
I have experience working in hospital and community settings. Throughout my career, I have worked with children, adolescents and adults on issues such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, substance abuse and trauma.

I love Leslie! I feel like I am talking to a good friend...the one that totally gets you but tells it like it is too. She has given me some great exercises/homework to help me think through some of my struggles. She pays attention and is able to reference things we have talked about in previous sessions and tie things together. I looked forward to my sessions each week and feel much better after we've spoken.
Leslie is compassionate and caring. She listens to me and my concerns and walks me gently through the decisions that I need to make.
Leslie is so down to earth! She knows her stuff.
I really appreciate the time I get to spend with my counselor.
I felt very comfortable speaking with Leslie for our first visit. She instilled a confidence in me that we would be able to work through my some of my trauma. She offered several counseling techniques intuitively tailored to my personality and hit the hammer on the nail. I feel excited to see what we can accomplish together and am grateful to have landed in her excellent care.
Since I started with BetterHelp and Leslie, she’s been able to really help me understand the problems I’ve faced and how to manage my anger and problems.
Leslie’s enthusiasm and attitude really resonated with me from the get go and helped me to come out of my shell from the first appointment. She’s very easy to talk to and a great listener.
I’ve been working with Leslie since Oct. 2018. She’s been nothing but helpful and supportive since day one. I would highly recommend her.
Leslie has been a tremendous help. She has been the support system getting me through a really difficult time in my life. I'm thankful for having her as my counselor.
I'm just starting with Leslie but so far it has been good.
She is lovely!
I am very happy to work with Leslie. From the beginning she was very supportive and was able to gain my trust immediately. With her professional expertise, she was able to come to the point directly and show me different angles and new ways of thinking. She responds very fast to my questions and we are in contact on a daily base. I had concerns about to consult a therapist online, but due to my living circumstances it was more or less the only alternative. After working with Leslie, I found it even more suitable, than a classic therapy, where you see your counselor at longer time periods. I personally see Leslie more than an expert coach, who supports me on a daily base and helps to achieve my goals day by day. I only can recommend to work with her.
