About Me

Are you struggling with your relationships? Do you struggle with addiction issues? Are you dealing with depression or anxiety?

Hello, my name is Leslie Rowan. I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist. I am also in long-term recovery, so I understand the challenges and impact addiction has on one's life and those around you. I specialize in overcoming addictions, women's issues, life transitions, depression, anxiety, family of origin issues and couples counseling.

I counsel people who want to live a purposeful life in recovery. In full disclosure, I am a proponent of 12 Step recovery when it comes to addiction, but I do understand there are other ways and paths to live in recovery. I help people unpack and discard what does not work for them anymore and find a life beyond their wildest dreams. My goal is for you to not just survive but thrive!

Depression can be very debilitating. CBT skills and DBT techniques are helpful in managing depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps you recognize how and what you think dictates how you feel, and how you feel dictates how you act. It is my job to help you change your faulty thinking. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy teaches you how to utilize mindfulness in everything you do. Both CBT and DBT will help you to address the things you have carried with you for years so you can successfully manage your depression and live a happy and productive life.

Anxiety can stem from many places and events in your life. The first step in managing anxiety, is to recognize the symptoms. I will assist you in recognizing those symptoms, uncover the places and events that cause you anxiety and teach you skills so that you can finally let your anxiety go.

I am an great listener, very compassionate, and empathetic. Together we can review your choices, your family dynamics, and dysfunctional patterns, plus areas that are not working for you so you can live the life you have dreamed about. It would be my honor to guide you, support you and witness your journey of self-discovery.

I’ve been looking for someone that can help me sort out my various problems without judgement. Leslie doesn’t make me feel like I need to sugarcoat things, and she gives me her honest opinion. I appreciate someone that can tell me when I’m wrong without making me feel bad about it. I can’t make changes to grow without some real support. Thanks Leslie!
