Leslie made my son feel important as he is. She worked through several different modes to keep in touch and make him comfortable even though he wants to be nonverbal.
We all need support after this year and she has supported him even through messages that let him know he matters and is thought of by others than just family. I appreciate her continuing efforts to draw him out of the cave he's been hiding in.
Expertise listener and equipped to unmask problems
I’ve really enjoyed my counselor. Her insight has helped me navigate my life tremendously. She’s very easy to talk to
Leslie has helped me put a lot of things that I am very confused or unsure about into perspective. She is teaching me techniques to help better understand myself and use in future situations as well. I really enjoy having her as my counselor.
Leslie is very attentive to detail. She does a great job of assessing the full situation before jumping to an action plan.

Leslie is helping me get through this excruciating situation of pandemic and uncertainty and upheaval. She listens, is very respectful, has a soothing manner about her, helps me understand myself and is flexible about scheduling time to see me. I highly recommend her and have already recommended teen counseling to a friend--who also is grateful for the assistance right now. Thank you!
Leslie is great! She listens very well and has great advice. I immediately felt comfortable, and she will always try to fit you in to scheduling and encourages contacting her outside of sessions if need be. I highly recommend her!
I joined just before the Wildfires in California kicked off, and it meant everything to have that support system during such a turbulent time.
Leslie has been very helpful for me. She is realistic, yet kind. I feel that I can talk about my problems without judgement, and she provides realistic advice in response.
Leslie has been such a blessing! I’ve had so much going on the past few months and she has been great helping me stay on track!
Leslie is great! She has helped me attack my problem head on and I’m becoming a new me everyday she is god sent and she has helped me see things from a perspective I would’ve never imagined. She is helping me learn to live everyday as if it’s my last! I recommend her fully my first counselor but will be my last I plan to use her forever!!
Leslie has helped me so much. Going through this tough time with her has helped me grow as a person and realize what i need to do. She has helped guide me through past trauma that has affected my life that I truly didn't see until now. She has been fantastic!
I like Leslie a lot. She listens to my concerns & we try to work through the challenges that come up in my life. I have PTSD, and we are trying to work through suppressed memories.
I have really enjoyed having Leslie as my counselor. She is very knowledgeable in many areas. It is easy to open up to her as I have no fear of being judged. It is nice to have a kind professional’s point of view. Thank you Leslie!
Leslie is very patient and impartial. She helps you to consider the situation at hand and how you can manage it by dealing with things you can control and managing boundaries in areas you cannot. She is compassionate and her experience allows her to give great advice
Ms. Powers is so kind and responsive. I have not been counseled by her for that long, but I really appreciate her attention to detail and always checking up with me if she hasn't heard from me. I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs counseling.
