Lesley Schmaltz


About me

Hi! My name is Lesley Schmaltz and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Indiana (licensed also in Kentucky) with 16 years of experience working as a social worker/therapist. I received my Master of Science in Social Work from the University of Louisville in 2005. I have a wide range of experience working with children of all ages through home-based, family preservation services, as a school-based psychotherapist working with elementary, middle and high school students and as a virtual psychotherapist treating concerns such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma/abuse, parenting support and many more. These experiences have given me the opportunity to utilize many different therapeutic modalities including trauma-informed care, Client-Centered and supportive approaches, Cognitive and Dialectical-Behavioral therapies, Behavioral and Behavioral Modification treatment, parenting support and family therapy.

My priority is to build relationships with clients and partner with them and their families to develop a unique treatment plan that suits each person/family. My style is warm, inviting and accepting. I am passionate and grateful for my opportunity to get to know people and witness their self-discovery. I look forward to having that experience with you!
