Dr. Lisa was a very good match for what I was looking for an for what I need in a therapist. She challenges me when I need to be challenged, listens when I need a listener, and checks in with me between sessions to make sure I am making progress. I also get the impression she has customized her approach to our sessions based on my individual needs, which gives me confidence in her abilities and helps me trust her advice.
