Leslee Marcom, M.S.

Leslee received her B.A. in Psychology from Texas State University and her M.S. in Counseling Psychology from the University of North Texas.  Leslee is currently a doctoral candidate in Counseling Psychology at the University of North Texas.  Her primary orientation is interpersonal, but she utilizes a number of other interventions (cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and mindfulness techniques) in an effort to help clients increase their coping skills and resources to alleviate current stressors.  Leslee places a strong emphasis on forming a strong, working alliance with her clients, as she believes that the therapy alliance can be utilized as a vehicle for change during the course of treatment.  For fun, Leslee enjoys spending time with family and friends, running, yoga, any music-related event, water sports, and trying new cooking recipes.
