Leslie has been a registered nurse (RN) for over 40 years and an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) for 37 years. She worked in intensive cardiac care and general medical-surgical nursing as an RN, and after graduate school worked in a private psychiatric clinic before starting her own practice of psychotherapy. She has been, and still is, a nurse-educator as well as a prescriber and therapist in the Indianapolis area. Leslie has lead hundreds of groups and especially likes to work with women’s groups. Leslie is interested in the biological basis of psychiatric disorders and the details of beneficial psychopharmacology. She has experience working with persons experiencing a wide variety of issues, and believes that learning to become healthier is a collaborative effort between the provider and the patient.

Leslie lives with her husband and her goldendoodle, Bella. Bella helps her keep track of her three young grandsons when they visit, if she is not retrieving balls.
