Leslie Fabian is an ‘R’ Licensed NYS Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of private practice experience in psychotherapy and counseling. She works with couples and adult individuals, providing an insightful and interactive approach to healing and change.

Leslie helps people with anxiety and depression, with relationship, parenting, and career issues, with sexuality and gender issues, as well as substance abuse and dependence.

Couples counseling is a direct, interactive approach wherein couples (married or unmarried, straight or gay) have an opportunity to learn about the forces that work to sabotage intimacy and commitment. Focus is on clarification and resolution of previous difficulties, learning healthy communication skills, understanding ones own and partner’s needs, and exchanging action for resentment.

Individual counseling combines several different approaches including ego psychology, self psychology, and object relations theory to help people understand the patterns that guide their lives and make the conscious changes needed to realize their goals. Leslie provides a warm, supportive, and nonjudgmental environment to work through past and present obstacles that detour people on their paths toward more fulfilling lives.

Leslie holds a Masters of Social Work from The Wurzweiler School of Social Work at Yeshiva University, and a bachelors degree with honors from The University at Albany. She has studied at The Greenwich Institute, and trained at The Fifth Avenue Center for Counseling and Psychotherapy. She has been in private practice in Greenwich
Village since 1994.
