More about Leslie
“I have tremendous respect for the hard work of showing up to therapy. My clients have my utmost respect as they step in the door to do therapy with me. I bring my optimism, my humor, and my real self to each session. I balance the validation and acceptance of clients with the belief and strategies available to help clients change. I do consider myself a change-oriented therapist.”
