Rebecca Leslie earned a bachelor’s in psychology master’s in psychology, and a doctorate in psychology.
“I started Best Within You Therapy & Wellness one year ago as a solo practitioner,” she said. “Today, we have grown to a group practice with six psychologists and a dietitian. I spend a great deal of my time providing therapy to my patients and specialize in helping people improve their relationship with food and their bodies.
“My time is also filled with managing the new company, from marketing to social media to hiring and onboarding. I also am a board member of the Atlanta International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals and on the Committee of Independent Practice for the Georgia Psychological Association. While my days tend to be very busy, I make sure to always incorporate some form of self-care (e.g. exercise, yoga, walks with our dog, Aubie, or calls with friends). In my free time I also enjoy hiking, exploring new areas of the city, and watching the Atlanta Falcons!”
Leslie recently attended her first Jewish Federation Women’s Philanthropy event and is excited for the opportunity to get more involved this upcoming year.
“I am proud of creating a group therapy practice that provides mental health and nutrition counseling services to individuals in the community. We have been able to help so many individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, insomnia, eating disorders, body image, or trauma this year. I feel incredibly grateful and honored.”
