Hi, I'm Lesley.

I believe everyone should have a safe space to be themselves in a non-judgmental environment and be heard. I would like to provide you with that safe space to share your story. As a therapist, I have worked in a school setting and in the community providing individual therapy to young children, teens and their families. I have spent the majority of my time serving teens, adolescents and adults who have lived in transitional housing and shelters and have experienced PTSD, sexual abuse and assault with dual diagnosis. I have also worked in-patient and outpatient hospitalization for eating disorders. I have specialized in anorexia, bulimia and binge eating while assisting with nutrition, meal prepping along with self-esteem, body image issues and managing depression and anxiety. 


In my approach to therapy, I meet you where you are at and collaborate with you to address the core presenting problem and create meaningful goals that you want to address during the course of therapy. I use different approaches during the course of treatment such as cognitive behavioral therapy to challenge the negative thoughts and focus on integrating positive thinking, and work on implementing new behaviors and ways to respond to triggers and events. My work is also client-centered and humanistic to create acceptance, awareness and self-love. 


I attended the University of La Verne, receiving my B.S in Psychology and graduated in 2012 following that I attended Mount Saint Mary’s University for my Masters in Psychology for Marriage and Family Therapy.  My interests include reading, traveling, and spending time with friends and family.
