My name is Leslie Salmon and I am a Licenced Clinical Pofessional Counselor and a Certified Alcohol and Other Drug Counselor. My passion is helping people transform, recover and heal from problems they thought they would never overcome. I offer a holistic (mind, body, soul) approach to emotional and behavioral health care, and I strive to provide genuine, empathic understanding and acceptance to all of my clients.
I am a seasoned therapist and have been counseling individuals, couples, families and youths since 1993. My most common treatment approaches are; Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (addressing one’s way of thinking, feeling and acting), and 12 – Step Counseling. I am also open to Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. I respect and honor all faith backgrounds and am happy to work with clients within the context of their religious or spiritual beliefs. My counseling experience includes work with; depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, substance and process addictions, bereavement, death and dying, addressing pain, parenting and family problems, stress management, gender identity/expression, codependency and other relationship concerns, workplace problems, and eating disorders.
My goal is to provide unconditional respect to my clients in a warm and peaceful atmosphere so they can comfortably focus on self exploration, personal growth and empowerment.
