Leslie is amazing! I feel like she actually cares about my mental health and well being and is invested in helping me navigate through a very difficult time. I couldn’t have asked for a better therapist.

Leslie is amazing. I’ve been in therapy before, but Leslie has given me new insight into issues that other therapists have never mentioned. Good listener, professional, respectful. Just can’t say enough good things about her!

My therapist is really great. She listens to me. Without judgment which is so awesome and she always provides a solution and let me know what the problem is and how I can fix it and congratulate me when she sees my improvement on certain things I would definitely recommend her to everyone I know

She listens and makes suggestions based on you. Gives you worksheet based on personal needs and supports a person. I needed someone like her to help me and not just say well that sucks but challenge me. She does challenge and has helped me get out of my funk.

Leslie was the perfect match for me, she has helped me look forward to counseling appointments. After the first session I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. Leslie has helped me recognize the sources of my anxiety and validated my feelings so that I could process them and find solutions to move forward. I’m so glad I took the hardest step by scheduling a session, I look forward to more healing as I continue therapy with Leslie.
