Dr. Rebecca Leslie, PsyD
I am a licensed psychologist that specializes in helping people change their relationship with food. I work with individuals struggling with binge eating, emotional eating or stress eating, and bulimia. I have a specific specialization in eating concerns and eating disorders with a binge component. I help people to feel less out of control when it comes to eating and spend less time thinking and worrying about food. Together we will improve your relationship with food and help you feel more confident. I also work with clients who have depression, anxiety, or trouble sleeping.
I completed my doctoral internship at Northwestern University’s counseling center and postdoctoral fellowship at Chicago Behavioral Health. I have experience seeing clients in private practice, counseling centers, hospitals, and medical centers.
As a psychologist, I use evidence-based approaches while personalizing therapy to best fit the unique needs of each person. I focus on building a strong and trusting relationship with everyone I work with. I am a warm, empathetic, flexible, and honest therapist.
Therapy will be focused on helping you reach your goals. In the first session, we will talk about what you are working towards. Then, our sessions will be tailored to meeting your individual needs and goals.
You are welcome to schedule a consultation or appointment with myself or any of the licensed psychologists at the practice.
I believe that trust is one of the most important elements in the therapy relationship. I work hard to establish trust so that all my clients feel safe to share and open up. It is so important to me that my clients feel I am on their team and genuinely care about helping them reach their goals. I tailor my approach to the individual needs and wants of my clients. I combine cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, mindfulness, self-compassion, and acceptance and commitment therapy. I help my clients to think about things differently, process their thoughts and feelings, and come up with steps to move towards their goals.
