About Us

Facilitating Restorative Communication Games & Products

Our goal is to heal, restore, and transform lives & relationships.

Through thoughtfully designed and tested questions and interactions, these first-to-market physical games of “Human Sense” provide a safe structured space for people to explore, reflect on, share and process who they really are; their struggles, dreams, memories, values, feelings, lives, humanity and experiences with one another, while they bridge and connect people across all divides and barriers.

Our intimate, face-to-face communication games have proven to fill an extensive void in our fast-paced, increasingly disconnected technological world.


Facing Down the Challenge of Mental Health

Hundreds of millions of people have no one to share their struggles, lives, experiences, even their dreams with, and do not have access to, or resources for therapy, or due to stigma will not go to a counselor or therapist. Sustaining mental health and resilience have become enormous challenges in the United States, as well as globally.

Trance4mation Games has met and continues to meet this challenge by developing and launching restorative communication “games” which provide for a human infrastructure of compassion and healing. Trance4mation Games' products make difficult discussions and fierce, transformative, life-saving, and life-changing conversations enjoyable and accessible, and have impacted over one hundred thousand lives to date.

To date, Trance4mation Games has targeted and is presently impacting four of American Society's most pressing issues; those of Diversity & Inclusion, Veteran Reintegration, Prisoner Reentry and Recidivism, and Policing. Soon to launch is The Streets Is Talking, a gang prevention game, and Awaken, a substance-abuse prevention & recovery game.

Meet the Founder

Leslie, Creator & Founder

Throughout my life, I have always been highly sensitive to people’s emotional pain. My mother had significant mental health issues, and I helplessly watched her cycle in and out of severe mood swings. This left me without anyone to share my inner life with, or to have the opportunity to develop my own identity. Through years of my own significant emotional struggles, and decades of work in underserved and marginalized communities, as a social worker, therapist, facilitator, workshop leader and presenter, I have dedicated my life to helping people to explore their feelings, experiences, realities, and lives, and to provide ways for them to experience their humanity and value through authentic connection with others.

I have worked tirelessly to develop and launch my communication games – designed to provide safe spaces for people to explore the darkness and the light within, from our demons to our dreams, with those who want to understand. Until now, there have been no “tools” or processes to accomplish this. I wish I could have had a tool to connect on much deeper levels with people in my life who I have lost to suicide. People playing these games often state that they know the people they have played for one hour with better than they know most of the people in their lives who they have known for years. These first and only of their kind “games” are meeting an urgent void and need.
