Leslie Lescallette-Button, M.A., LPC, NCC
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and the owner of Kaleidoscope Counseling Center. I have spent the majority of my counseling career in the school setting, working with children and adolescents of differing needs, ranging from mild impairments to more complex problems. My current focus is on helping adolescents, young adults, and mature adults, however, I still love children and offer group therapy to children who are receiving services from a different practitioner, or those whose parent/guardian believes they may benefit from this service.
I am passionate about the power of effective therapy and am committed to improving my clients' functioning so that they can live better lives. I create a safe space, offer emotional support, and utilize an integrative counseling approach, individually tailored to each of my clients, to elicit real change. Regardless of the presenting problem, I use a strength-based approach to develop the skills they already have and a variety of interventions to help them develop a new perspective and new skills. I am certified in Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) for individuals and for group settings, and am a skilled group facilitator who appreciates the value the group experience can provide to my clients.
I love kaleidoscopes and what they represent. I am also a firm believer that the use of color can improve mood!
