About me

I offer professional counseling to individuals and couples to help them experience restoration, healing and freedom from anxiety, depression, trauma and relationship distress. I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques that are individualized to your specific needs and am a certified trauma therapist.

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with almost 20 years of experience working in child welfare and mental health. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from UAB and a Master of Social Work from the University of Alabama in 1999. I began my career in the field of foster care and adoption at King’s Home and later at the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home helping families care for children from hard places. During my career, I have served as a therapist in a variety of settings including residential treatment for adolescents, day treatment for veterans experiencing mental health crises, non-profit counseling ministry, and private practice. Currently, I offer tele-mental health counseling to couples and individuals through my private practice, Leslie Cude Counseling. I believe that a therapeutic relationship is vitally important in helping you experience healing and return to a life of flourishing . I will help you learn new ways to regulate your overwhelming emotions and interact with others. I strive to build an empathetic relationship to support you as you move through the challenges of life and relationships.
