My name is Leslie Smith Townsend and I'm the pastoral counselor at Broadway Baptist Church. My office, the original pastor's office, is in the children's wing of the building. I have more than 30 years experience working in agencies, hospitals, private practice, and churches. Most of the people who come to see me are ordinary folk who've encountered major life crises that interrupt their normal functioning. I work with individuals and families struggling with anxiety and depression, vocational and related life transitions, chronic and terminal illness, adolescence and young adult development, sexual/trauma abuse and recovery, and those seeking spiritual direction.

I have a Ph.D. in pastoral counseling (1991) and am a licensed marriage and family therapist. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns at 502-895-6190.

I am a CIGNA, Anthem, and Humana provider. The first two visits for Broadway members are free.

I look forward to hearing from you.
