Leslie has been a huge help to me at this time in my life. I feel very comfortable and never judged while speaking my truth to her. She is a wonderful listener and seems to remember all the things going on with me, which I appreciate. I always look forward to our appointments and the sense of relief and love I feel after. I would highly recommend Leslie for sure!
