Leslie L Gum, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Oak Brook
Do you have a child or adolescent that is suffering from anxiety or depression? Transitions can be difficult and result in symptoms, stress and unhappiness for some youth. I work to help each person get through their challenges and find their strengths. Families can benefit from a therapist who helps them to process their feelings and experiences. Parents can feel overwelmed when their child is suffering.
Throughout my career I have focused on children, adolescents, individuals and families. I assist others in improving their current emotional state in a safe and comfortable environment. School changes, divorce, loss, mental illness and trauma are some of my specialities. I am a strong advocate for children and adolescents in schools.
I am a psychotherapist who tailors my approach to each individual and family. I focus on building trust and helping others to make changes in their day to day lives. My goal is for others to have positive well-being!
