Hi. Thanks for stopping by my site! My name is Barbara Lester and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have almost thirty years of experience providing psychotherapy for children, adolescents and adults with a broad variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, eating disorders, and behavior and learning problems. I currently specialize in working with children and adolescents on the autism spectrum. I also have a family member on the autism spectrum – my ninety year old father!
I recently wrote a workbook for children who have a parent on the autism spectrum, and I have developed apps for smart phones (along with my wonderful husband and son who do the programming!) on anxiety, depression, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, anger, and behavior management. I also have a YouTube channel, ASDspecialist, where you can catch up with me “in person.” There I talk about autism and Asperger’s, and general psychotherapy related topics.
