Lesley Hollister

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

The focus of my practice is on both couples and individuals. As individuals I believe our highest potential awaits our discovery. Sometimes we have a lot of "stuff" that gets in the way of realizing our best selves. As a counselor, I like helping clients find and know their highest self - the person they know they are meant to be. My goal is to create a safe and creative space for my clients to explore, discover, and heal from the issues and barriers that block full awakening.

As a couples' counselor, my therapy focuses on the emotions couples bring into their conflicts to understand the dysfunctional negative interaction patterns, so that couples can make conflict discussions more functional, constructive, and regulated. Couples who understand their own and their partner's underlying attachment patterns and emotions can gain more empathy and understanding and feel more emotionally connected and secure. My approach to therapy combines The Gottman Method as well as Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT).

Couples often seek counseling after their relationship has sufferedfor a long time. Couples therapy can be a great way to strengthen a strong relatonship before it collapses. My therapy works well for pre-marital and other couples who have a good relationship and they want to keep it that way.
