Meet Lesa Pescali in an “ASK THE THERAPIST” Teleconference
Lesa has her Master’s Degree in Psychology, Counseling and Education from Santa Clara University. For the past 16 years she has been working with clients suffering from neurological disabilities as well as veterans suffering from PTSD and other mental health conditions. Lesa also works with families helping them to understand mental illness and its effects on families and communities. She believes working with individuals in their communities rather than in an enclosed office allows greater success of integration back into society. Prior to her work as a therapist, Lesa was a deputy sheriff for Santa Clara County. In this role she worked with incarcerated offenders and saw firsthand what happened to these offenders within our court process. As a deputy Lesa was appointed to work with children in classrooms teaching them the effects of drugs and the best way to prevent their usage. Lesa’s work includes therapy, conservatorships and personal case management.
Lesa will speak about her background, her therapy with individuals with mental health conditions, and her personal case management. She will conduct a question and answer period to give you an opportunity to ask questions about her work and to solicit advice.
