Lesley White, LICSW

Hi, my name is Lesley and I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. As a clinical social worker, I’ve supported the needs of individuals living with serious mental health conditions and neurodiverse profiles (autism, ADHD, Asperger’s, and other learning differences) for the last decade. I currently offer individual therapy to adults treating depression, anxiety, adjustment to life changes, relationship issues, and women’s issues.

My goal is to provide a safe and trusting environment where you feel understood. My approach to therapy is centered around identifying your needs, honoring your feelings, and building on your strengths.


I believe in a person-centered, strengths-based approach and can pull from a variety of interventions including cognitive-behavioral therapy, solutions-focused or psychodynamic theories to support you in your healing and empower you to live authentically. I strive to meet you where you are so that you can connect with your individualized patchwork toward wellness.


Before becoming a therapist, I received my undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of New Hampshire. I received my master’s degree in social work from Boston University in 2015 and practiced social work in the state of Massachusetts before moving back to the seacoast in 2020. I have been licensed for independent practice in the state of New Hampshire since 2022.


If you are interested in partnering with me on your journey, I’d love to work with you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at (207) 977-6307 or lwhite@oldeportcounseling.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
