Leslie Ekings, LICSW
As an experienced clinical social worker, my goal is to help you to reach your goals. Whether you are facing a loss, a life transition or other challenges, my work with you focuses on partnering to identify and enhance your strengths, look at limiting beliefs stemming from your experience, to achieve your identified goals of treatment. I believe that in our lifetimes we go through a series of transitions and these transitions have the potential to lead to transformation. As a therapist, my role is to facilitate insight and understanding of the impact your experiences have had on your life and to support you in reaching your goals, optimizing your life satisfaction in your personal and professional relationships.
I utilize various approaches in counseling including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strength Based and Mind-Body modalities. I believe in using humor, creativity and an open, non-judgmental curiosity in my approach with you.
I am a graduate of Columbia University School of Social Work with 28 years of experience in the field. I work with adolescents (16+) and adults in individual counseling. Call me, and we can talk a bit first to see if I may be a fit for your needs.
