Leslie – Registered Clinical Counsellor

I recognize how essential it is for my clients to feel heard and supported and to have their concerns addressed as quickly and effectively as possible. I view therapy as a collaborative process where I work with my clients to acquire the appropriate coping skills for their present difficulties while gaining the understanding and insight needed to handle future challenges. By working together, I will help you to build on your strengths and expand your skills to not only cope with the obstacles in life, but to optimize your well-being and to reach your full potential.

I am a registered clinical counsellor who uses an integrative approach, and therefore, counselling techniques are tailored to your needs and personal circumstances. I provide treatment in the following approaches: Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural therapy (DBT), Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), Person-centered therapy, and Solution-focused therapy (SFBT). I work with adults experiencing many challenges, including anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma.

Whatever the reason you are seeking counselling, it can be helpful to have someone to talk with who is not going to judge, analyze, or tell you what to do. With my clients, I always aim to provide a safe space for therapy where we can discuss and explore a range of issues, have those difficult conversations, and where you can share your thoughts and feelings. Most importantly, this is a time where the focus is you.

“I am so grateful for the counselling I received from Leslie. She helped me work through some things that felt very overwhelming and really helped provide me with the tools to get myself out of the rut I had fallen into emotionally. I am in such a better place emotionally and mentally and I could not have done it without her!”
