Hi I’m Leslie! My pronouns are she/they. I’m a Creative Arts Therapist, Reiki Master, and Curandera (Healer). I attended SUNY New Paltz for my Bachelor of Science in Visual Arts and Hofstra University for my Master of Art in Creative Arts Therapy Counseling. I interned at Nassau University Medical Center with inpatient youth & adult behavioral health.
In my spare time, I love to be in nature, surrounded by family and friends, and snuggled up with my rescue cats, Nova & Henny. I love watching movies! My favorite movies are Avatar, Harry Potter, and everything Marvel. I also enjoy music festivals and dancing with friends. I’m super approachable, caring, and down-to-earth. I love creating peaceful & healing spaces for myself and others. I believe it is important to be silly, laugh, play, and create no matter how old you are!
As a Latina and first generation American, I too struggled with my identity and self-esteem when I was a child. When life seems impossible, there’s always hope. Even if you may struggle to see your worth today, I’m here to remind you that you deserve peace, self-love, and happiness. I can help you get there! As a Provisional Registered Art Therapist, I specialize in art therapy where free self-expression is always encouraged. We use the creative process to explore emotions, reduce anxiety, increase self-esteem, and resolve other psychological conflicts.
I have a passion for working with BIPOC & LGBTQIA+ youth and young adults who are struggling with self-esteem, trauma, anxiety, and depression. I look forward to helping brave young adults navigate their worlds, advocate for themselves, and build their self-esteem for a more fulfilling future.
I can't wait to create a healing space where self-expression is encouraged with you. Let's connect!
