I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Alabama with over 9 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, chronic health issues, career challenges, divorce/separation, LGBT issues, cancer, and more.
My counseling style is supportive, validating, nonjudgmental, and direct. I believe in treating clients with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.

Leslie has been so helpful and given me so many tools. She’s also great to just listen to me vent without being too pushy about solutions I don’t vibe with. She gives me ideas as to how to handle things that I genuinely hadn’t thought of. Thank you Leslie!
