Lesley, a licensed independent clinical social worker, provides individual therapy to adolescents age 13 and older, as well as individual and couples therapy to adults up to age 65. Lesley’s practice is grounded in a culturally responsive, strengths-based, and trauma-informed approach. She specializes in helping people to gain insight and develop self-compassion that helps them to tap into their strengths and tackle concerns such as navigating change, identity development, and improving relationships across the spectrum (friend, family, intimate partner, professional).
Lesley uses evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness/Meditation, Internal Family Systems, and DBT skills. She customizes her therapeutic approach in response to client needs as they address anxiety, depression, self-esteem/assertiveness concerns, mood disorders, and other concerns that serve as barriers to reaching their goals.
When Lesley is not working with her clients she enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, listening to podcasts, and caring for her pets.
Lesley received her Master's in Clinical Social Work from Bridgewater State University in 2011.
