About Me


Hi! I’m Leslie Stevens-Tavera. I am a Tappahannock, Virginia native who has called the beautiful state of North Carolina home since 2002.


I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, life strategist, spiritual coach, and writer. I am licensed to practice therapy in both North Carolina and Virginia. I co-founded The Congruence Counseling Group PLLC, a private practice in Carrboro, NC, to help meet the growing mental health needs of individuals in our community. I am a believer, and as a believer, I believe in the infinite and limitless possibilities of God’s love. 


By nature, I am an empathic, intuitive helper.  I show up in life ready to serve and willing to provide support.  I am a direct impact person. The clients that I serve come away from our sessions feeling heard, validated, and supported. With that, they are able to make healthy changes that impact all spheres of life.  This platform is born out of a desire to reach and support more people.  Let’s take this journey together!
