Leslie Ann Velgach, LSW
As a Licensed Social Worker, my experience in therapy is truly diverse. My training in adult and child/adolescent settings has prepared me to provide evidence based treatment. I believe in the importance of understanding client’s individual needs and providing the appropriate tools for clients to find success. I practice from a strength-based approach combining several modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, dialectical behavioral therapy, and mindfulness. I believe that the key to success is a strong therapeutic relationship, and I strive to provide a warm and accepting environment that is conducive to positive change.I earned my Masters in Clinical Social Work (at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration), and my Bachelors in Social Work (at Luther College in Iowa). My specialties include: ADD; anxiety disorder; depression; bipolar disorder; self-esteem; stress management; behavioral issues; coping skills; mindfulness; crisis management; child, adolescent, and adult therapy.
