What is Leslie's practice philosophy?

Leslie says: "I believe in establishing an environment of care that is rooted in shared decision making. You might say, what does this mean? It means that I view my role in our client provider relationship as holding space and providing education/treatment options, so that you can make a treatment decision that is best and right for you. I hope that you leave our session feeling empowered, educated, and heard. I also believe that medication isn't always the best option. When it is needed, it can be a powerful tool in your toolkit to wellness. I look forward to partnering with you as we discuss how medication may benefit your current care, as well as other holistic treatment options that are available. Again, my goal is that you feel empowered, educated, and heard."
