Hello – I’m Leslie. I’ve been a clinical mental health provider in Maine (LCPC), Rhode Island, Wisconsin and North Carolina (LCMHP) for over 22 years. I help adults and adolescents, individually, as couples or families, and in groups. Focusing on your desired change, I provide perspective, resources and effective strategies. I commonly help people experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship and family problems, aging, bereavement and health, sleep and career, sexuality and spiritual challenges to find their “better” way. Healing trauma, both military and domestic, and empowering people to be their unique selves are core concerns. I see people as complex and skilled, if sometimes “stuck” or “off track”.
My counseling style is warm, creative, and interactive. I value human being, and treat all with respect, compassion and cultural sensitivity. As a holistic, body-centered practitioner mind, body, heart, spirit and life experiences are all important to life quality. My trauma-sensitive approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, mindfulness, wellness and art therapy tools. Our dialog about your unique and specific needs guides your achievement of your goals and deepens your understanding of life.
I am pleased you want what is best for you. You seek an objective, non-judgemental and experienced ear to help you find clarity effectively. My joy is for you to get “there”. I am ready to go there with you.
