Imagine feeling good about yourself, food, and your body.  
 

 

  • Are you struggling with emotional eating, unhappy with your body, feeling out of control with food or your weight?

  • Do the words, “I’ll be good tomorrow” or “I’ll start again tomorrow” sound familiar?

  • Do you wish you didn’t spend so much time thinking about food and your weight?

  • Do you use food to soothe emotions?

  • Do you wonder if there is another way besides the next fad diet?

If any of these apply to you, you are in the right place 

Please know it is not about your lack of willpower or discipline. Trying harder with the latest diet is also likely not the answer. The answer is first about understanding why you are eating in a way that you don’t like but having a hard time changing it. Once you fully understand that, you can begin to make specific changes.

Working With Dr. Leslie

Dr. Leslie is a warm, empathetic, and honest psychologist with expertise in her areas of specialization. She focuses on building a strong and trusting relationship with her clients. Dr. Leslie uses evidenced based therapeutic modalities. She also personalizes therapy to best fit the unique needs and goals of each person.

Therapy will be focused on helping you reach your goals. Dr. Leslie asks the following questions: “If we finished our sessions and you said to yourself, ‘I’m so happy I scheduled these appointments, what would you be doing differently? How would you be feeling, and how would we know our work together had an impact?” These questions enable therapy to be tailored to focus on your goals and how to best achieve them.
