Leslie is a joy to work with and very good at making me feel comfortable sharing my thoughts and feelings that i need to work through. It is incredible to see someone who has experience and expertise on both lgbt issues and trauma counseling available for me! I am very happy we got matched.

Leslie has given me work sheets in the better help app. She reads my journal entries. She is supportive and lets me drive the therapy but also brings her expertise to the conversation.

Leslie is more than I could have hoped for! One of my biggest concerns in starting therapy was that I wouldn’t jive with my therapist but I feel like she’s my perfect match! She hears me, understands me, is real, approachable, and provides tools to help keep me on track throughout the week. I can’t wait to continue working with Leslie and look forward to our sessions. Thanks better help!
