Leslie Simmons, LCSW




As Maya Angelou said, “History, despite its wrenching pain, can not be unlived but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.”

Beginning a therapeutic journey is courageous and requires commitment. There are as many paths as there are walks of life. The goal of my practice is to build client-centered, collaborative relationships in a relaxed and confidential setting. I believe in using creative and compassionate problem-solving strategies—always starting where you are. I welcome all people regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or religious affiliation.

I provide creative and compassionate therapy to adults, teens & kids (over 10), with a special focus on women’s issues. My training and therapeutic orientation includes: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Eclectic Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy. Special practice areas include:

  • complex relationships
