I am trained in IFS , which takes a radically non-judgmental approach to those patterns that you're seeing, and views them as ways you have learned to protect yourself.
If you are seeking counseling, you might be trying to make sense of challenging relationships, in the middle of an unforeseen transition, or just starting to process wounds from your past. With everything that you are dealing with, you may have noticed some patterns emerging that keep you from feeling like yourself--maybe criticism directed inward or at others, coping with food or substances, or just shutting down completely.

People often come to counseling feeling stressed, overwhelmed, worried, depressed, and sometimes unsure of where to turn next. My goal is to create a relaxed, comfortable, “come as you are” space that is free of judgment to talk through whatever obstacles are impacting your life. My approach focuses on relationships and is client-centered in order to empower you to take steps towards the healing and growth that you desire. I trust you to be the expert in your life as we walk together towards achieving your goals. In my work, I use an eclectic blend of techniques from CBT, IFS , DBT, and mindfulness to best meet your needs.

From there, I incorporate approaches such as EMDR, DBT, IFS , and Brainspotting to help you in learning skills and resources to effectively take action and create the life you envision.
My ideal client is anyone who is contemplating a change in their lives, big or small. This may include specific, actionable areas such as changing a certain behavior or more broad, general changes such as how to better improve your mental well-being or develop healthier relationships. I believe that everyone is capable of change and, many times, already possess everything they need - they just don't know how to access it. I work with clients to develop an individualized change plan to turn big decisions into easier action steps. I view my role in this process as a "change consultant and coach" to help people live their dreams.

Everyone experiences wounds in life, be it loss, illness, abuse, a difficult relationship, neglect, or any other overwhelming issue. Sometimes even experiences that "should" bring joy like graduating, starting a new job, marriage, or having children can render us feeling like we are in crisis - or stuck. I work with clients to help them get unstuck from feelings of anxiety, depression, and emotional reactivity. When we can identify the patterns that keep us in pain, we can begin to develop new ways to cope and manage the stress of our lives.

​The people I help in therapy are used to handling whatever life throws at them. They are high achieving and successful at school and work. Other people have high expectations of them that they can usually meet. But, at some point, they begin to feel that perfectionism and the pace of life has worn them out. Something has changed and the ways they’ve coped in the past aren’t as effective as before. If you're thinking about starting therapy, you may be feeling the same way. You’re meeting everyone’s expectations of you and getting it all done. But you’re exhausted by the fear that your best will never be enough.

Telehealth only. What makes today so different? Today is different because something happened that made you decide, "Hey, I really need to do something about my life. I need to talk to somebody." Hi! I’m Dr. Leslie Ring. Some clients come to me because the bottom just fell out of their lives, a setback at school or work, a betrayal discovered, or the death of a loved one. For others, they just don’t want to keep living like this anymore. Old hurts from childhood or previous relationships keep robbing them of their peace of mind, creativity, fun, and closeness with others.

I believe every person can overcome their history and trauma to lead a rich fulfilling life.  I know that every person deserves and can achieve radical healing, and that it shouldn't take a lifetime to get there.  If you are relentlessly and courageously pursuing your own healing, you have come to the right place.  I use a combination of deep listening, EMDR, parts work, and other somatic modalities to help my clients achieve profound and lasting change.  I expect that you will see significant progress in the time we are working together, and if you don't, I will help you find someone who can offer you that.
