  • Leslie Shapiro, MA, LMFT

    Heather

    If you're reading this, you're thinking about how a regular video session with a therapist could help make your life better during these difficult times. I love working with teens and adults living with anxiety, depression, OCD, and hoarding disorder to improve their lives.

    I'm passionate about coaching clients on how to break the negative cycles that are causing them pain. Together we set the right pace to introduce new behaviors and move forward to see real change. My clients tell me this helps them decrease stress and reconnect with the people in their lives.

    As a parent myself, I take joy in working with my teenage clients. Sometimes I involve parents or guardians, sometimes the work is one on one, and I even work with clients using role playing games like Dungeons and Dragons for therapeutic purposes. When we start working together, we'll discuss all the options to find the approach that will work best together. 

    After years as a Professional Organizer, I've developed a special kinship with people who've found their compulsions overtaking their lives and their living spaces. While it may seem difficult to address these challenges while we're all stuck at home, I can work via video to address both the causes and symptoms to create lasting change. 

    These are difficult times, and you're brave to take the first step. Whether we work together or not, I wish you all the best in your journey.
