About Leslie C. Kilpatrick, M.Ed., LCSW
Leslie C. Kilpatrick is a graduate of the esteemed Smith College School for Social Work (2008), which provides immersive clinical education and internships for aspiring therapists. Prior to this Ms. Kilpatrick completed a Master’s Degree in Education at the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia, which continues to be of benefit in advising families and youth who are considering or have had psychological evaluations. Ms. Kilpatrick began her higher education at Lafayette College, studying both psychology and women’s studies, which sparked her interest in the psychology of gender.
Her career is informed by the five years she spent as a counselor at Graydon Manor, a residential treatment center, counseling youth and families during life-altering challenges and transitions.
Ms. Kilpatrick continued her education in topics that she believes would most benefit her clients. Because she values protection of patient health information, she attended the TeleMental Health and Digital Ethics course through the Zur Institute, and an online therapy HIPAA-compliance course with Person Centered Tech. To better support her pregnant and postpartum clients, she took perinatal mental health courses including Postpartum Screening training with the Seleni Institute and Postpartum Mood and Anxiety Disorders training with Postpartum Support International (PSI) and 2020 Mom Project.
In 2012, Ms. Kilpatrick went into private practice focusing on women, teens and families. Her work with clients is grounded in her regular yoga and meditation practice and her open-hearted nature.
