In everyone’s life there comes a time when struggles seem overwhelming. It takes a strong person to ask for help. If you’re ready to take this step, I commend you for your inner strength, and I’d like to help you find a resolution.”
Dr. Leslie Faris’ words are comforting and sincere, and as a “solutions-focused” licensed clinical psychologist, she can help you successfully overcome the hurdles before you. Seeing people of all ages and from all walks of life, including children, professionals and high-profile individuals, Dr. Faris offers individual, group, family and marital counseling. She also conducts psychological evaluations and testing. Although she specializes in mood and anxiety disorders and health-related issues, she stays up-to-date on the treatment of many other psychological disorders and issues.
“It’s an honor to have a front-row seat to watch my patients heal and progress. Their success is what brings me such joy and what keeps me doing what I love to do,” said Dr. Faris, whose empathetic, non-judgmental and down-to-earth nature helps put people at ease.
When asked to describe her theoretical orientation, Dr. Faris says she uses an eclectic approach.
“No two people are alike; therefore, I do not take just one approach to psychotherapy. I lay the groundwork with a cognitive-behavioral foundation, but psychotherapy is always highly tailored to the individual,” she said.
After earning a Master of Science in psychology from Western Washington University, Dr. Faris received a doctorate in clinical psychology with an emphasis in health psychology from San Diego’s Alliant University, California School of Professional Psychology.
Dr. Faris, a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Texas, is a member of numerous professional organizations including the American Psychological Association and the Association of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback.
