I am a sex and psychedelic therapist providing a holistic, alternative approach. I work with individuals and partners primarily seeking to address sexual goals, work with psychedelics, or want a therapeutic approach that can integrate meditation, tarot, reiki, and somatic (body) work as desired. I see my role in therapy as a facilitator of pleasure and a fellow hand in the dark as we walk towards your innate wisdom, strength, and light.

You’re feeling disconnected, either from yourself or others, lost, in pain, or just not like yourself. Maybe you’ve been here before, or this could be the first time you’re seeking therapy. Regardless, I warmly welcome you! I use mindfulness, narrative, parts work, and psychodynamic approaches blended with cognitive restructuring to support people with mood and thought disorders, difficulty with relationships, life transitions, grief/loss, and singular, chronic, or intergenerational trauma. Your body is also in therapy, so somatic, body-centered approaches to anxiety, depression, and other symptoms are also incorporated in my work.

Hi I’m Leslie, and I’m excited to work with you! I work with clients on cultivating an awareness of the mind, body, and spirit connection by incorporating cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness based practices, and energy work through the chakra system. I love holding the space for clients to learn how to sit with their feelings, turn down the chatter in their mind, and tune into their intuition. Whether we are using ERP (exposure and response prevention) to face your fears or meditation to learn how to let go, my style consists of down-to-earth humor, playfulness, and compassion.

Parenting and family life can often be more challenging than we envisioned. I help families navigate social-emotional difficulties, behavioral struggles and life stressors. I am able to connect well with both children and parents and to create a sense of comfort and safety. I use both play-based and talk-based interventions depending on the developmental level of the child. I help parents better understand their children and to respond to them more effectively. My ultimate goal is to strengthen the connections between parents and children and to create more joy and peace within families.

As I experience all the shifts life has to offer, I have developed more of an understanding of the value in considering others and my own mindset. Problems, uncertainty, and challenges are not going away; they are always going to be in our lives. The thought things must always be set in stone is an illusion from the start. However, if we change our mindset and change those same problems, uncertainty, and challenges into growth moments without limitations or limiting beliefs and focus on solutions; we are left feeling empowered to create change, and I am excited to go on the journey with you.

As an immigrant, I recognize the unique experience individuals face in life. I am passionate about delivering quality care and service to my clients. I hopes to provide support to anyone who is going through a confusing phase or hardship. One of the reasons why I became a social worker was my passion for improving care in communities. I specialize in working young adults, adults and older adults dealing with complex trauma, family dynamics, relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, stress, phase-of-life changes, grief, and loss, as well as children with ADHD and autism.

Clients I work with often feel in-between jobs, relationships, cultures, identities, or values. This “in-between” feeling can show up as depression, anxiety, or difficulties with relationships and life transitions. I believe that peace and stability comes from finding comfort in the “in-between” and not forcing yourself out of it. I offer space for individuals to learn more about themselves and how they show up in the many roles in their lives so they can be more themselves in all parts of their lives.

I believe that therapy is a unique place to begin to explore a person’s life story and to understand oneself in the context of that personal history and present situation. The way we tell our stories defines who we are in the moment that we tell it and therapy offers an opportunity to learn that the story is not finished and that the narrative can be changed.

I have a compassionate and strengths-based approach to therapy. I believe that it is the relationship we build together that empowers you to work towards your goals. While treatment looks different for each person, I integrate techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy, EMDR, psychodynamic theory, and trauma-informed practice into my work. As a bilingual/bicultural person of color , I am particularly interested in working with those who want to explore racial/cultural identity.

Achieving personal growth is a commitment of time and effort: change is hard work! That's why my style is warm, open, and direct. A sense of humor helps too.

Everyone comes to therapy for unique reasons. I feel I've done my job when my clients can leave with a greater sense of satisfaction and self-confidence.

I use my knowledge and experience to help them through the stuck places so they can live clearer, more confident, more meaningful lives.

The most courageous and compassionate act one can perform is the request for help. People often believe if they pay attention to a problem that they will make it worse or that the pain associated with the problem will overwhelm them. Yet in my clinical experience and in my own life, the opposite is in fact true. The longer we ignore pain or a problem, the worse it gets. I believe it is in the confronting of our problems that we begin to heal and discover that we are much stronger than we thought.
