Leslie Wilborne, LPC

My work as a Mental Health Therapist…

My Name is Leslie Wilborne, a Licensed Professional Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor™ in the state of Connecticut. I am a two-time graduate of the University of New Haven, obtaining an undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice and Psychology and a master’s degree in Community/Clinical Psychology.

Who I’m Passionate about working with…

I have worked in various clinical settings including but not limited to in-home, community, private practice, and outpatient settings. I help individuals with Trauma processing, Racial Identity issues, Anxiety, Stress Management, issues of Self-Esteem and Confidence, and Relationship concerns.

I believe my ability to connect with clients is universal. I work to empower others to become more comfortable with accountability, vulnerability & progress. I would describe my treatment philosophy as one that is built upon the belief that people begin to heal at the moment, they feel heard.

More about me…

I strive to close the gap between access and healing. As a Black and Hispanic woman from the Bronx who has lived in the New Haven Area for over 10 years, I would be remised if I did not mention that my personal history has led me on my own journey toward healing. It has also placed me in this position to help those in my community and similar on their journey.

I view myself as anything BUT a “cookie-cutter” therapist and have an eclectic approach to treatment. I aim to always remain transparent, understanding that the relationship we will have must be, like any other, BUILT on trust. In doing so, we will delve into the issues at hand, and collaborate to create a plan for addressing them in a way that helps you strengthen your foundation and bring about stability.

I draw upon my years of experience while recognizing there is always more to learn. I work to empower others to become more comfortable with accountability, vulnerability, and progress. I welcome you into my healing space, I am eager to get to know you and help you on your path toward your goals. Dope vibes will be emitted all throughout your treatment journey.

I look forward to working with you on your healing journey to foster intergenerational healing.
