My name is Leslie, and I am a licensed professional counselor licensed in Colorado and Texas. I have a Masters from Santa Clara University in California and have been counseling for over 20 years, supporting individuals, couples, families and groups across a myriad of ages, geographies and demographics.
In addition to my Private Practice, I have worked at Stanford University Hospital in CA, Baylor Scott & White Hospital System in TX, and as a Director of Counseling at several boarding schools and young adult counseling centers in the Bay Area. My experience lies in trauma, career and education, bullying, relationships (family and romantic), anxiety, ADHD, depression, PTSD, grief and loss, sexual assault, online dating, parenting, marriage, social media, and work/life balance, among others.
I would describe my approach as integrative and holistic, while also making use of cognitive and behavioral strategies to support clients who want actionable, concrete recommendations to achieve their goals. Above all, I always ensure my approach is uniquely tailored to the individual, topic and environment, so we can evolve and adapt our strategy as needed.
