For over 26 years, Leslie S. Tsukroff has been empowering her clients to effect positive changes in their lives. By sharing practical, valuable, and healthy ways of coping with life’s stressors, Leslie enables people to focus on achieving their goals and making the most of their time in therapy.  

Counseling is not a one-size-fits-all process.  Leslie will provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment in which she can assess your history, symptoms, needs and personal style. Then she will work with you to develop a blueprint to guide your treatment. 


Treatment Models/Treatment Approach

Leslie pulls from her vast training and experience to create an individualized treatment plan for you and/or your family. Social workers like Leslie believe that people do not exist in a vacuum, but are a part of a larger system. She recognizes that there are many facets of a person’s life and that people are more than just their behavior and choices, their psychology and biology. Together, you and Leslie will examine how these factors, as well as your culture, environment, history, education, occupation, relationships, and family impact how you listen, learn, live, and love. 

She utilizes a variety of traditional treatment models, combining them with both experiential and creative treatment approaches.

  • Supportive Counseling

  • Insight-Oriented Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
