Hello there! I am from Haiti and have lived in various parts of the US-- NYC, Southern California for my doctorate, North Carolina for my pre-doc internship, and Upstate NY for my post doc internship. I chose to be a mental health professional because I value providing a safe space for individuals, in which they can be themselves, and explore the complex nature of who they are and who they are becoming.
Being a teenager can be especially difficult and traumatic. It can also be filled with joy, passion, adventure, as teens are learning more about themselves, meeting new peers, and deciding how they'd like to lead their lives. I want to provide a safe space for your child-- a space in which they feel secure, understood and validated, and assist them in finding more joy throughout their teen years and beyond. I have mostly worked with teens experiencing depression, anxiety, sexual trauma histories, and interpersonal difficulties.
I tend to keep in mind individuals’ cultures, history, and the various obstacles they may be experiencing (e.g., racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia), and how all of these obstacles can impact mental health. I value engaging in healing and liberating work where individuals can find safe spaces in their communities online and offline, where they can be themselves, share their stories with others, share their dreams for a less oppressive future, remember their peers and ancestors who may have been taken away too soon, and share the music, writings, and arts they love.
I think all humans crave connections and my dream is for individuals to find connections and spaces in which they feel at home. I also put a lot value on exploring and engaging in self-care. Connecting with, being in tune with, and loving oneself can all enhance our ability to connect effectively with others.

Sarah is an incredible listener who is always an aura of respect and calm to my day. She’s easy to connect with, and makes me feel heard and valued. She’s great!
Dr. Leclerc is wonderful. I highly recommend her and the entire application if you are someone that feels extra security knowing that someone is there for you!
She was very sweet and a good listener. She took the time to understand my needs.
Dr. Leclerc is really attuned to my issues and what I bring with me. Her methods and values are really closely aligned to my own, which makes me much more likely to respond and reflect on the advice and practices. Dr. Leclerc is very consistent in her reminders of previous suggestions, extensions of topics, and consideration of communications/time. Her approach towards me as a whole person and cultural background has been a comfortable and positive experience. I will def carry forward with much of her and I’m really appreciative of the entire experience.
Dr. Leclerc is a wonderful therapist. She takes her time to listen thoughtfully and offers advice which is practical, objective, and judgement-free. I found myself surprised by how quickly I felt comfortable sharing with her given we were only speaking over the phone. I would recommend Dr. Leclerc to anyone looking for a therapist.
Dr. Leclerc was amazing. She is very attentive and listens closely. She gives excellent feedback and exercises to do outside of the sessions. Would most definitely recommend her.
Dr Leclerc is very professional and is always on time for our sessions. She listens to me and gives me suggestions on how to deal with different situation. I look forward to our sessions. Talking with her over the past few months really made a positive difference in my life.
Dr. Leclerc is amazing! Hands down fabulous. She has helped me dive into parts of my mind that I never had access to. She’s very solution-driven and has helped me target areas of opportunity in my life and has pushed me to push and grow in these areas. It’s been less than one month but she has helped me feel more like the person I want to be for myself and for those around me. My relationships have become stronger and most importantly I have better control over my anxiety and stress. I have never felt more psychologically safe prior to meeting her!
This woman is legit the best counselor that we all deserve!
I have never had a good experience with therapy until Dr. Leclerc. She made me feel comfortable throughout my time speaking with her and confident in myself.
Dr. Leclerc is so easy to talk to and she creates such a welcoming environment. She listens well while offering support, advice, and coping mechanisms. Because of her help and counseling, I have recommended teen counseling to multiple friends and colleagues. Dr. Leclerc creates a safe environment to express yourself and work through your emotions and problems.
Dr. Leclerc is knowledgeable and approachable. I had a somewhat failed experience with app-based therapy before, and she has made it so easy. It feels just as effective as in person therapy, but much more convenient. Dr. Leclerc is careful and considerate and remembers our previous conversations and chats. She asks probing questions and has already led me to insights after just a couple of weeks!
Dr. Leclerc has patience, empathy and looks at the total picture. I was so nervous about therapy despite seeing and knowing the benefits. Dr. Leclerc made me feel comfortable and confident to explore the foundation to my anxieties. She is prompt with her message responses and highly detailed. When we schedule phone session she was on time and referenced back to our chats. My appreciation and confidence in the service has trickled into my personal life. I’ve recommended teen counseling based on the quality of service provided to me by Dr. Leclerc. She cares, she is easy to speak with and her tone of voice is calm, inviting, respectful, and knowledgeable. I recommend her and am happy I was matched with her for therapy.
Give her a raise. I love her!
Dr. Leclerc has been extraordinarily helpful, empathetic and insightful. I am continually instilled with complete confidence that she is actively listening to me and respectfully troubleshooting my daily struggles.
Dr. Leclerc, words cannot express how grateful I am for her holistic approach. She is an incredible professional, she is kind, caring and really insightful. She has been so very essential in my journey and navigating some really rocky waters in my life. I always feel better after our sessions and am really glad that I have finally found a therapist like her. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking someone that they can speak to openly and process their transitions, past and journey. Thank you Sarah!
Dr. Leclerc has been an amazing support system since I have been fortunately matched with her. She’s helped me get closer to being the person I want to become, while also forgiving the person I am today, more than anyone in myself in a very long time. I’m really, really thankful for her and recommend her to anyone that wants to get help and doesn’t know where to start.
Dr. Leclerc is extremely understanding and is super helpful. I always feel so much better after each session with her. She always gives me tools and things to help me with whatever I need. She is also super kind.
I wasn't sure about therapy through an app, but after a few sessions, I'm so happy I gave this a try. Dr. Leclerc is so wonderful and a great listener. While going through a rough life transition, she's been very responsive and supportive. I'm really looking forward to continuing our talks and working on my self-love.
Dr. Leclerc is amazing. I feel comfortable opening up and don’t feel as though I’ll be judged when I do. She offers great feedback and suggestions for managing stress as well as other problematic areas in life. She responds in a timely manner and takes the time to respond with messages. They are thoughtful and well written. I would highly recommend her!
I have only had one meeting so far, but she was insightful and helpful. Also, very responsive to messages. I look forward to working with her further. I have a very busy schedule and am glad to have found this approach to providing counseling - thank you.
I am the parent of a teen being seen by Dr. Leclerc so I don't have regular appointments with her. However, from the parent perspective I do find her to be engaged and response to my messages.
I was very hesitant to do counseling but Dr. Leclerc has been incredible at helping me deal with and move through a very hard time in life riddled with anxiety. I would recommend her to every single person I know. She’s amazing at what she does. I believe she truly understands what I need from her as an individual and she doesn’t follow a script of what a typical counselor might. She’s wonderful and very professional.
Dr Leclerc is very kind and understanding, and is a great listener! Thank you!
Dr. Leclerc is so patient and truly listens. I’ve never had a therapy experience where from the first session I feel like the therapist gets to the root of my issue and supports me in clarifying my habits and ways to clear it up. I would recommend her to anyone. I’ve had breakthroughs on breakthroughs already and I’m so happy that she is there with me the whole way.
