Dr. Leslie Raymond Freedman
A caring and compassionate clinical psychologist with over 30 years' experience treating adults, couples, and families across the lifecycle!
Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
For over 30 years in private practice treating individuals, couples, and families, I have provided a calm, caring and supportive environment where patients can develop strengths and skills for managing life's challenges. My clinical perspective focuses on developing an understanding of our current behavior, along with our underlying thoughts, feelings, and beliefs in the context of our past experience. This offers a robust framework for understanding and coping effectively with life's complexities.
What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?
I provide short-term focused psychotherapy and long-term intensive interpersonal treatment for anxiety and depression, as well as couples and family issues, including the challenges of stepfamily relationships.
What are you proud of in your practice?
I pride myself on establishing a warm, engaging treatment relationship that many experience to quiet anxieties and promote trust and self-confidence. In a setting that ensures privacy and confidentiality, my patients learn to listen to their own voices and explore how best to address their life's demands.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
One of the most rewarding aspects of my practice is how trusting my patients are in sharing the everyday details of their private and public experience. What may seem mundane and predictable on the surface reveals its surprises as together we honor the emotion and unravel the twists and turns that lie between and beneath the spoken words.
