Meet Leslie Hughes

Reaching out for help is both a difficult and brave task. The fact that you are considering it shows great strength and determination. I provide a safe, compassionate, and strengths-based counseling experience for you. We will begin by making a connection that feels secure while identifying your hopes and goals to improve your overall well-being. Your sessions belong to you and treatment will be customized to provide the best possible outcomes for your specific needs. I look forward to meeting with you!

I spent the first 18 years of my career as a teacher and loved it, however, found myself becoming burned out and began experiencing significant symptoms of depression. When I attended therapy myself, I realized the positive impact in my own life and decided to make a career change. In 2012, I completed my Masters of Clinical Mental Health Counseling and began my work as a licensed counselor.  

The joy of my work as a therapist is in working with people from all walks of life who have decided that it is time to make a change. I have primarily worked with people dealing with depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, addiction, and various types of life transitions. I am a licensed in both Kentucky and Ohio and can provide in-person or telehealth sessions.  

If you are interested in working together, I would love to provide a free 15-minute phone consultation to answer your questions and to ensure I am the best fit for your needs.
