Child Therapy

It can be difficult to make sense of the world when you’re still finding your place in it; many children experience challenges in childhood or adolescence that make coping increasingly difficult. Lesli’s office provides a safe and welcoming place to explore fear or shame that can arise from unhappy circumstances and feeling misunderstood.

Lesli works with children of all ages and backgrounds, from the age of 5 through 18. Common topics include:

  • Symptoms of depression and anxiety
  • Arrival of new siblings
  • Grief and loss (pets, family members, and friends)
  • Developmental concerns
  • Self Esteem
  • Test anxiety
  • School Transitions (middle school, high school, college)
  • Anger and rage
  • Coping with divorce or remarriage
