About me

I offer a supportive non-judgmental environment to help people address a wide variety of issues including symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship struggles. I specialize in marriage, couple, and family counseling, but I also do a lot of work with individual clients. When the pandemic began, I was very concerned that the online format would not be as beneficial for people, but that has not been the case. This is especially true for individual clients. I do my best to make it feel like we are sitting in a room together and having a conversation that just happens to be working on any issues people are struggling with.

I have additional extensive training and experience working with teenagers with behavioral issues and their families. Teenage behavioral problems I have experience with include, but are not limited to, defiance, disrespect, self-esteem, school difficulties, criminal and problem sexual behaviors. These can be challenging behaviors for parents to understand and manage. I offer support and guidance for parents to address them and help their children grow into confident, healthy, happy adults.

I approach each therapeutic relationship as a team with my clients. I never dictate what someone needs to work on. My only goal is to help clients reach their own personal goals and that is different for every single client. I have been doing this work for over 20 years and I look forward to helping you reach YOUR goals!

Leslie has been an amazing therapist; the best I have ever had! She is so kind, supportive and truly listens. She is non-judgmental and eay to talk to. Even though I only sought therapy for about 5 months, I grew a very close connection with Leslie and felt like I was talking to an old friend when we would chat. I made more progress working with her for just those few months than prior therapists after a few years. I feel comfident in my ability to self-reflect, self-regulate and work through my struggles with the tools she has taught me. I highly recommend Leslie!

Leslie has an expert listening ear. She offers support without saying what to do. She offers options and confirms my feelings and concerns about the issues I’m dealing with. I appreciate her insight and her encouragement! I’ve already shared with two of my closest friends about her and about the BetterHelp app.
