Lezlee specializes in helping you address relationship challenges. She can help you identify the barriers that hinder your connections with people. She especially loves to work with couples and young adults to help them express their emotions. She also supports individuals and couples who experience infidelity and trust issues.

Lezlee uses emotionally-focused therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and Gottman approaches to help repair interpersonal and family relationships.
