LESLIE LONG

(MA, MEd, CPsyA)

About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor, certified career coach and psychoanalyst specializing in helping people through thrive through life and work transition. Having been a counselor for more than 16 years, I have re-created my own professional identity through three significant careers: from teacher (public, private elementary) to sales and marketing executive (telecom, advertising) to psychotherapist in private practice (worklifetogether.com).
It is never too late to find a path to greater vitality, emotional vigor and sense of self. I offer guided assistance and an emotionally supportive relationship that clears obstacles and makes room for an authentic sense of greater potential and future in work and life. Some of those obstacles may be a loss of confidence, changes in your present work environment, relationships, and a long-felt lack of engagement. Facing these obstacles, it is normal to feel overwhelmed, stuck, anxious and depressed. I offer therapeutic support, a way to regulate negative emotions and a path to resilience. (Please note, I am not available for sessions after 5pm or on weekends)..

Written by C.A. on Oct 14, 2020 after counseling with LESLIE for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and bipolar disorder

Leslie is the best thing to happen to me in 2020! She is super attentive, supportive, encouraging and sweet. It was amazing having her to talk to once a week during the pandemic and she has taught me a lot of things in just our last 6 months of sessions. 10/10!!

Leslie is a compassionate and thoughtful counselor. She listens to me and offers practical and positive advice. Every session leaves me feeling better than I did before.
