I believe that it takes tremendous courage and a leap of faith to enter therapy. I respect that individuals are complex beings and strive to work in very collaborative ways to combine an individual's expertise on themselves and their experiences along with their strengths with my expertise on evidenced based interventions. My goal is to provide services tailored to each person's needs and presenting problems using a combination of mindfulness and acceptance strategies, effective behavioral interventions and skill building to help people feel and do better, reduce suffering and be able to live their most meaningful and best lives.
Welcome! I want to support you on your journey to becoming your best self by helping you identify your needs and goals and taking steps toward balance, acceptance, healing and self renewal. I have 20 years of experience working with children, families and individual's. As a School Counselor I have worked extensively with children and adolescents with depression, anxiety, ADHD, school and social issues. I work with adults with anxiety, depression, trauma work/life stress and relationship issues to find solutions to specific problems, new insights into self, higher levels of functional coping and more effective communication.
Do you suffer low self-esteem because you have difficulty maintaining daily responsibilities at school, work, or home? Do you struggle with sitting for long periods or staying on task? Do you sometimes feel as though you are "controlled" by strong waves of emotion or anger? Maybe you're discovering trouble in your relationships with others due to forgetfulness, time management, impulsiveness, substance abuse, or general communication issues.
I am a passionate, engaging, clinically-driven psychotherapist who helps clients identify and change "Stories" that do not serve them. My background includes diverse clinical experience serving adults and adolescents across mental health and substance abuse diagnoses, biological sex, race, culture, gender identity, and gender expression. I use an authentic, relational-driven approach to facilitate exploration, growth, and change.
When an individual is abusing substances, often times it manifests itself as chaos, unpredictability, and complete confusion. As a result, not only is the individual tormented, but the suffering extends to their family and loved ones. When this happens, confusion, anger, fear, and other uncomfortable emotions frequently arise in all parties involved, as a solution to this overwhelming problem seems unfathomable. To compound this issue, the substance abuse treatment industry can be incredibly difficult to navigate. Having worked in a wide variety of substance abuse treatment settings, I can help with this process.
Telehealth available statewide. In-person sessions available in New Haven on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Welcome to my counseling practice; I know that it can take a lot of strength to make that initial call, and I especially enjoy working with those who are new to therapy. I am a licensed professional counselor with more than 18 years of experience working collaboratively with clients to provide mental health treatment for depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, addiction, anger, and life transition issues. I use an integrative mix of evidenced-based therapeutic techniques.
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, Leslie Hunt Palumbo, LCSW, MSW
Life is full of change and the unexpected. Have you been blindsided by one of the many curveballs life can throw at you? Do you feel overwhelmed, lost, or directionless? Realigning after a huge change- be it the loss of a loved one, separation/divorce, job change, health shift, or even college graduation- can be a challenging process. I love to help people adjust, grow, and transform though these shifts, seeing the forest through the trees to come to a fuller, more centered perspective on all that life still has to offer. Finding our way back to peace can be demanding and we could all use some support in this process.
Face-to-face sessions are so valuable and it's why I continue to offer them when many others do not. I am a licensed clinical social worker/psychotherapist with over 18 yrs of experience in all areas of mental health, treating clients aged 18-95. At my practice, Evolve Holistic Therapy, LLC, my goal is to help you heal & evolve to your highest potential. I will guide you in learning skills to manage stress & anxiety, and improve your life & relationships. We will journey together towards your best version of yourself and to peace & serenity. If you do reach out, please do so by text or email. I am inundated w/ calls.
