My name is Greg Leslie.

I’m a dedicated mental health practitioner who offers counselling and therapy to individuals and families dealing with mental health issues and those who have experienced trauma from violent crime (including gun violence and car and work-related accidents).

As a natural educator with expertise in mental health, my practice centers on raising awareness and educating others on diversity and inclusion, anti-racism, the impacts of trauma and the justice system. I also use anti-oppression frameworks to address systemic barriers to mental health and wellbeing.

I aspire to be a change agent and believe that authentic collaboration is the key to creating effective solutions that will break down barriers and bring about meaningful change for individuals and communities alike.

Working in the Black community, I use my lived experience and mental health knowledge to provide consulting services to public sector/non-profit groups, hospitals, school boards, and businesses on initiatives that support at-risk youth.
