About Leslie’s approach
My approach to therapy is based on eclectic evidence-based practices that focus on meeting clients where they are today. Without trying to fix people or their relationship imperfections, the goal is provide people with a stronger ground to stand on so that they can address the challenges unique to their lives. Though people’s basic needs are the same, our individual circumstances and environment can leave us unequipped to respond to difficulties, thus impacting the health of our relationships. Whether you’re dealing with chronic anxiety, discontent in a marriage, or a child’s misbehavior, the tools and skills are here for you.
Based on my 32 years of being an LCSW, I draw upon a wealth of experience and knowledge in:
CBT, DBT, DBT-PE, Trauma therapy, effective parenting, mindfulness training, The Gottman Method of Marital Therapy, DBT, Imago, relational therapy and emotionally focused therapy
A variety of evidence based techniques will be used according to your specific needs.
