About Me

Lesa Pascali, MFT

Featured on:

psychologytoday-300x97.png

I am committed to connecting with individuals and families through therapy.  I help individuals discover/rediscover the harmony, meaning and wellness within their lives.

 

After 23 years in law enforcement and 20 years doing therapy, there aren’t many situations I haven’t seen or dealt with. I’ve worked with a variety of individuals and families including veterans, ex-offenders, victims of trauma, single adults, couples and parents, teens and neurologically imbalanced individuals.

​I offer individual, family and relationship counseling and conduct case management, counsel families who have family members who deal with neurological imbalances and diseases such as schizophrenia, bipolar disease, depression and other issues. I conduct case management and counsel families who deal with custody and visitation issues.

I’ve learned by using proven therapeutic techniques that talking to a professional is the equivalent of taking control of your life. Every person as well as every family deserves full and happy lives.

“I’ve seen families who repeatedly stumble through the maze of trying to find solutions for the mental disorders their loved one experiences.  Where do they go and what can they do? Please give me a call.  I’ve been through the maze many times and can offer solutions”.
