When treating common issues such as depression and anxiety, Leslie encourages her clients to consider the many factors–some of which are not readily apparent–that tend to shape such self-limiting patterns. Leslie helps her clients examine how unresolved family issues can present various roadblocks to realizing one’s desired lifestyle, career or relationship. Utilizing CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Leslie motivates clients to better understand self-defeating tendencies of thinking, feeling and doing as they arise in the Here and Now. Leslie believes the single most essential key to unlocking a client’s full potential is the client’s genuine self-belief, open-mindedness and willingness to accept personal responsibility for one’s Life Experience.
