Lisa Smith

(M.S., LPC)

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!

Written by M.C. on Jan 16, 2019 after counseling with Lisa for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and coaching

So far I've only had 2 "meetings" with Lisa, but in those 2 hours and all of the messaging back and forth, I've been thoroughly impressed and happy to have made the decision to use BetterHelp. Can't believe I waited an entire year to utilize the website.

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.
