About Lesley Malik, MA


Lesley's Background:

Lesley comes to the therapeutic and psychological profession with a passion for people. A native of Britain and having lived in Europe and Africa before settling in the Orange County area, she truly understands the American "melting pot" and the wonderful people who make this community work, one human condition at a time.


"I love getting to know people and I'm honored when they come to trust me with their personal stories, hopes and fears."
People often come to her feeling overwhelmed by the challenges they are facing, but Lesley says "I have seen over and over again how powerful the effect of a warm, non-judgmental listener can be on a person."


Counseling Credentials

After graduating with honors from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology at Southern California, Lesley began her career with Human Options, an agency providing therapy for domestic violence victims. Since that experience, Lesley has been in private practice. Today, Lesley visits with clients in her Irvine, California office.


Personal Notes:

While finding her work with others challenging and rewarding, Lesley has also carved out time to work with her local Parent-Teacher Association, on the Childcare committee with the City of Irvine and is a board member of the Orange County Children's Therapeutic Arts Center (OCCTAC). She has been a member of the Irvine community since 1991.


"I am driven by the desire to help people be the best version of themselves they can be, and to have rewarding and satisfying personal relationships," said this compassionate counselor.
