About me

I am licensed a licensed California Marriage, Family and Child Therapist with 20 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. I work with clients to create a safe, nonjudgemental environment where they can learn to overcome barriers to intimacy and connectedness, cope with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief and loss, & intimacy related issues. In couples therapy, I help clients to repair broken trust, improve their communication, and strengthen their capacity for emotional intimacy. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage; and I am looking forward to getting to know you, and helping you set goals towards a happier and more fulfilling life.

She's great! One of the most interesting and insightful people I've ever met and I know some cool people. We are so lucky we found her. My husband has had great therapists in the past but for me, Leslie is the first therapist who is obviously wiser than I am. It was always difficult for me not to second guess my therapist's insights, but Leslie has this remarkable ability to give us a gentle (or delightfully no-nonsense) reality check and she is never wrong. It's really, really nice to be able to just relax and trust that she SEES us and knows what she it talking about. Ten out of ten. Couldn't be happier.
