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.

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!
Leslie has helped me tremendously since I signed up for BetterHelp a few weeks ago. I am so appreciative of her advice and willingness to listen to what I have to say. She goes out of her way to check in and remembers details about my particular situation. I highly recommend her and BetterHelp in general as an excellent way to get the help you may need.
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.
