Lisa Smith

(M.S., LPC, NCC)

About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor with over 6 years of experience ( 3 years Bachelor's level and three years Master's level) in North Dakota working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, Anger Management and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and dialectical behavioral therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Lisa is an absolutely amazing counselor who shows genuine care and concern to me. She has gone out of her way to accommodate me with regards to live sessions. She has a beautiful way of making a person feel very comfortable, and she is also very jolly and light hearted. I would venture to say that she is an invaluable asset for Betterhelp as a counselor. In a nutshell, she is absolutely and totally awesome!

Written by M.C. on May 31, 2019 after counseling with Lisa for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and coaching

She’s incredibly smart. It’s been about 5 months now, and I’m thoroughly impressed with her knowledge, AND her listening skills. She listens to every single word I say. I know she’s not on the other end of the phone, playing a game or texting. Highly recommend!

Lisa is patient, non-judging and warm. She brings a kind energy to tough situations and encourages me to keep sharing. I'm very grateful to her for being there and sharing advice when I'm struggling. Really, knowing her warm energy is there makes getting through tough times easier, just knowing that I'm not alone.
