Ready to stop feeling overwhelmed with life, family, friends, and relationships? Want to thrive and feel empowered again?
Do you or your child remember when worrisome thoughts, negative self-talk, feeling alone, disempowered, and overwhelmed weren’t the daily norm? Those days feel like a distant memory now. Don’t you wish you, or your child, had the tools to change that?
You’ve come to the right place
I’m Leslie and I help women and teens just like you: ones that have it within themselves to conquer those fears and anxieties, but just need the tools to get there.
I help my clients find confidence, happiness, independence and empowerment by equipping them with the tools they need to have a better sense of self.
Understanding that each client is unique, my approach is tailored to meet your individual needs. My goal is to equip you or your child with the tools they will need for the longterm, not keep you in therapy for an extended period of time. Together, we will create a safe, understanding, and non-judgemental space that is specifically tailored to your needs.
First, we explore what is causing the anxiety or depression. Then, we work on developing immediate goals and coping strategies that will be most effective. By the end of our time together, my clients are equipped to conquer their anxiety or depression and lead a life of contentment.
I am someone you can trust
My training and experience in working with women and teens means I have the expertise you need and deserve in order to conquer these challenges. But at the end of the day, you want to make sure I ‘get it’ and that I’m going to understand what it means to suffer with anxiety and depression, correct?
I do ‘get i’t because I’ve struggled with my own feelings of anxiety and depression in the past. I understand that there are some days where you feel like you just don’t have it in you to face any more difficulty. My job is to help guide you along the path to empowerment so that you have the tools that will assist you in breaking these cycles. So, when you work with me, you won’t just get a trained therapist, you’ll also get someone who has walked a similar path and understands your needs.
I look forward to meeting you. Please reach out to schedule your free 10 minute consultation. My number is 225-570-1331. If I don’t answer, please leave a message and I will return your phone call as soon as possible.
