Leslie HemedesPsychologist, PsyD
I utilize a strength-based, collaborative, and solution focused approach to treatment. My hope is that I provide a space that encourages safety and openness. I believe that our identity is influenced by our genetic make-up, significant relationships, life experiences, & culture. Throughout the therapeutic process, we will understand how your unique history influences your thought processes, decision making capacity, values, goals, motivations, self-worth, sense of balance, and relationship style. Drawing stronger connections between the past and the present, will make more room for identifying useful tools that will help you manage distress and move toward your goals. Throughout this journey, we will work together to help you better understand who you are, how to transform challenges into opportunities, and how use insights/tools to decrease distress, resolve conflict/problems, identify strengths, and move toward being the best version of yourself.
