Atlanta Psychologist Dr. Rebecca Leslie

Specialties: ages 18+, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges, perfectionism, trauma, eating disorders, and body image

You may be reaching out for support at this time because you’re feeling stuck. When meeting with my clients for the first time and discussing what brings them to therapy, most share that they have tried everything that they can think of to address their concern. Perhaps they’re used to being able to “figure it out” independently but the current issue feels insurmountable. My approach to therapy is walking alongside you as you explore different parts of yourself, better understand your thoughts and emotions, reflect on where long-standing patterns may have come from, and move towards actions that align with your values. While you are the expert of your own experience, you don’t have to go through this alone.

I am a licensed psychologist who specializes in relationship concerns, anxiety, depression, disordered eating/body image, perfectionism, trauma and resilience with close attention to and incorporation of your intersecting identities. I have almost 10 years of experience providing counseling services to adults and young adults. Specifically, for the last two years I was the psychologist for the Emory School of Medicine, where I worked primarily with medical students. I have a deep understanding of the ways academic stress impacts young adults, particularly in their longing for a sense of control and the impact of work stressors on relationships.

I use research supported approaches to address client concerns, while leaning into our therapeutic relationship by building a safe and collaborative environment. I strive to find balance between exploration and empowering you to leave each session with tangible skills and strategies that can help you meet your goals and maintain changes over time. It would be an honor for me to walk alongside you as we explore parts of yourself and trust that we can make meaningful changes together.

Therapy Approach

Therapy can provide a safe space to process what may be difficult to understand in the “outside world.” Using an interpersonal process perspective, we can understand the therapeutic alliance as a reflection of general tendencies that occur in the real world. For instance, if a client has social anxiety, I will use our relationship to work through fears that may be happening in interpersonal settings. Through this and a psychodynamic approach, we will be able to understand where the anxious thoughts came from, as well as how they may have developed at some point as a coping strategy but are no longer serving a purpose to the client. I work with clients to let go of what’s not working for them anymore and adopt new habits and thought patterns through intentionality and practice. Using a feminist and multicultural approach, we will uncover strengths that currently serve you and move towards a more value congruent way of being.

What would you say to someone who is considering therapy?

You have done the best you could with what you had. If you are feeling stuck, take that next step and realize you do not have to be alone in this process. Meeting with a therapist will empower you to live out your own values between sessions, see a different perspective, and change your life in a meaningful and sustainable way. You will leave therapy with tangible skills and strategies while also understanding yourself better and seeing more clearly what old patterns you want to hold onto and what you want to leave behind. It will be hard work at times but I will meet you where you are to build a trusting and safe therapeutic relationship where you will feel heard, validated, and understood.
