Please wait ...

Your clients are sick and tired of talking, session after session, about their trauma...

...They're hoping for a breakthrough that never seems to come.

When every evidence-based strategy you’ve been trained to use breaks down, it’s easy to feel like you’re not doing enough.

It’s a feeling I experienced often in my early years of practice.

But through my time as a pioneering integrative medicine researcher and clinician at Harvard Medical School and later working side by side with indigenous healers in the jungles of Mexico, I began to discover a complex relationship between what we eat and the way we think, feel, and interact with the world.

With my clients, I started integrating talk therapy with nutrition, body work, breathing strategies, yoga, medicine and more.

And I quickly discovered that their journey to healing accelerated and they experienced lifechanging results — even when they were previously stuck.

That’s why I created this exclusive, self-paced online certification training… to teach you how to treat both the mind and body so your trauma clients can find deeper healing faster than ever before.

You'll end this certification course with a step-by-step process you can implement immediately with your clients and the confidence you need to create personalized care plans from an array of scientific disciplines proven to improve overall well-being.

Bonus! Once you complete this training, you’ll meet the educational requirements to immediately become Certified in Integrative Medicine & Nutrition for Trauma Treatment* …

And your first year of certification is FREE (a $99.99 value!).

She specializes in post-trauma therapy, treating complex physical and emotional illness by integrating psychotherapy, bodywork, yoga, herbal medicine and nutrition.

For over 25 years, Leslie directed a pro bono traditional medicine clinic in the jungle of Mexico, working with indigenous healers and directed yoga and bodywork teacher training and internships. Leslie completed her academic studies at Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Public Health, Union Institute and Lesley University.

She is the author of the textbook on Integrative Medicine and Trauma, Rhythms of Recovery: Trauma, Nature and the Body. About this book, James Lake, MD, said: “the first scholarly work that attempts to fill the enormous gap in the conventional armamentarium used to treat PTSD.”

Leslie developed the Masters level certification in trauma therapy treatment program training for Licensure level clinicians at Lesley University in 1990. During 15 years of private practice in Boston, she treated victims of violence, individuals with chronic and complex trauma and survivors of clergy and treatment/cult abuse. She taught body therapies in the psychogeriatric ward at Lemuel Shattuck Hospital in 1983 and introduced a body psychotherapy to patients with PTSD, schizoaffective disorder, and borderline disorder at Cambridge Hospital out-patient psychiatry in 1985, as a clinical fellow and instructor. Trained in acupuncture, Leslie became the clinical director of the New England School of Acupuncture in 1990.

Leslie was the first clinician invited to present on somatic therapies for treatment of trauma at ISTSS in 1995 and has twice presented at the invitational annual IMMH (integrative medicine for mental health) on Integrative medicine and nutrition for PTSD and complex trauma. She is an instructor at the Integrative Psychiatry Institute and has taught for the Washington State disabilities training course programs on pain and sat on the Governor's Committee for Obesity and Diabetes.

She has been awarded multiple research grants including a 3-year grant as principal investigator to conduct mind-body medicine research by the NIH and a 3-year grant to study community trauma in rural Mexico. She was a Fulbright research scholar on Traditional Medicine in Mexico.

Leslie has a private practice seeing patients and mentoring clinicians in integrative medicine for mental health practice and continues in her role as director of research at cwis.org. She is the author of 9 books and numerous peer-reviewed papers.
