Ezekiel McLeskey (they/them)

EdS
Accepting Clients

Hello! I appreciate you considering me as someone that may stand by you during this difficult time.

Counselor in Gainesville, FL
Supervised by Heather Vann, EdS, LMFT

About My Clients

The focus of my individual clinical work has been with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, identity crises, childhood trauma, and obsessive-compulsive symptoms, while tackling a plethora of general life issues. I have also worked with couples and families to resolve interpersonal issues.

My Background and Approach

When working with individuals, I move toward finding balance between reducing current symptoms and addressing the underlying issue(s) causing the symptoms. Generally, I implement cognitive-behavioral techniques through a person-centered trauma-focused lens. When working on relationships, my lens shifts to an attachment-focus with some behavior skills. -------My presence is warm, authentic, and empathic. I bring myself into the counseling process as I view all humans, including myself, as flawed and beautifully imperfect. I see my role as a guide toward healing and growth, while also holding the notion that I am simply a “fellow traveler” on the journey of life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about helping people in systemically opressed groups like those in LGBTQ+, non-monogamy, and kink communities as well as any others that may find it hard to express parts of themselves. All of you is welcome! -------There is also a part of me that wants you to be the best version of yourself. I have seen the value of this in my own life, and I am enthusiastic about guiding you to go deep and develop the insight about what's most important in your life, which can ultimately lead you to self-actualization.
