Leslee Sesno, LCSW

Leslee Sesno is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been working in the mental health
field for over 10 years in various settings and populations.
She started working in mental health in the non-profit sector at a crisis shelter for runaway
adolescents and family shelters in San Francisco. She then worked with the older population in
a skilled nursing facility as a social worker and has learned tremendously about the challenges
and introspection at this life stage. She has worked with individuals with severe mental illness at
a non-profit organization in North County. Working with people at the most trying and
challenging times of their lives with limited resources and support in their lives has impacted her
spirit of compassion and care for vulnerable individuals in the community.
More recently, she shifted to work in private practice as a therapist for individuals from children
to adults. She works with children, families, and individuals of diverse cultural backgrounds with
issues including trauma, depression, anxiety, self-harm, domestic violence, LGBTQ issues,
relationship and family issues, grief, and loss. She is trained in therapeutic skills of CBT, DBT,
MI, and EMDR.
Leslee has this to say:
“My heart is open and passionate for people of all walks of life, whether it be any age and life
stage. I believe that everyone will heal and grow. As we nurture ourselves to acknowledge and
accept our past, be mindful of the present, and strive for personal growth, the possibilities in life
are open and endless.
We all need encouragement, support, and a safe place to be ourselves, to express our struggles
and emotions. My hope is that as a partnership, we can become the best versions of ourselves.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about me and for taking the opportunity to grow.
