Leslie Rouder (CHT,LCSW)
I have worked with a wide variety of clients as a therapist and coach since 1997. I’ve provided counseling to specific populations including those with ADD, those who are hard of hearing and/or deaf, those suffering from substance abuse addictions, adolescents and their families, couples and those experiencing a life transition or grieving a loss. As a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Certified Hypnotherapist, I have also helped many people who suffer with anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), phobias, smoking cessation and weight loss.
From 2000 – 2011 as the Director of Disability Services at Barry University (in Miami Shores, Florida), I had the opportunity to assess and provide counseling and coaching to hundreds of students with ADD/ADHD and various learning and physical disabilities. At the same time, I ran a part-time private counseling and coaching practice that specialized in working with ADD clients in Boca Raton and Miami.
In addition to my therapy and coaching work, I’ve conducted and hosted numerous workshops, trainings, and radio shows related to ADD and personal transformation.
Having developed a passion for, and then becoming an expert in the field of ADD/ADHD for more than a decade, as of July, 2011, I expanded my private coaching and counseling practice to full-time. My work is now devoted to helping people reach their goals and thrive.
A Few Interesting Tidbits About Me:
I love the beach and spend a lot of time there swimming, reading, and floating on my raft while the waves wash over me.
As an animal lover, I have 2 exotic short hair cats — one pure black and the other pure white. Their names are Felix and Oscar, named after the popular 1970’s television show called the Odd Couple.

The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
I’ve been an artist my whole life. My undergraduate degree was in fine arts and for several years I ran an art gallery in New York City and then owned an art consulting business for 12 years.
It’s funny how life turns out. When I first studied art in undergraduate school, my intention was to become an art therapist. Somehow after graduation, I ended up in the art world, until finally at the age of 40, I went back to my true passion –helping others. Now, that I am following my heart, I’ve never looked back. My goal as a counselor is to help you too, “follow your heart” and maximize your full potential.
