About Me

I have always enjoyed working with couples, being able to observe the dynamics and help each person be the most they can be within the relationship. I have over 25 years experience as a licensed therapist and have helped couples identify their deepest concerns, hurts, worries and fears within their relationships, along with their partner, in order to build and develop greater abilities for intimacy and vulnerability with each other. I share the characteristics of healthy, growing relationships with my clients and through their own work, discover ways they can engage more effectively with their partner. I work on issues related to communication, often a trouble zone for couples, so that they can share their feelings, be an active listener with their partner and break down defensiveness that can lead to arguments. Couples can learn to laugh more, authentically rely on the other when needed, and also feel comfortable and trusted as their develop and grow individually.

Written by K.O. on Sep 12, 2021 after counseling with Leslie for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

We have only been with Leslie for a short time but in that time she has been very attentive, helpful and kind.

I was and still am in a dark chapter of my life. I was matched with Leslie on the Regain app. I really did not know what to expect from this experience. Yet, I have now been corresponding with Leslie over a year (I think), and I have found her to be honest, direct, yet kind and comforting. I don’t think I could have handled the current challenges I am facing without having her to turn to for professional guidance and advice. In short, I think Leslie is wonderful.
