Lisa Arce

(MA, LPC)

About Me

My name is Lisa Arce (Pronouns: She/Her) and I am a licensed therapist located in San Antonio, Texas. I have my Bachelors of Art in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Master's in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Often times we can find ourselves struggling with life transitions, anxiety, depression and self worth. This influences the way we view ourselves and the world around us. Sometimes these thoughts can be distorted and self defeating. I can help you in learning the coping tools you need to navigate these obstacles and challenges. I am LGBTQ+ affirming and trained. I also specialize in working with individual adults who are suffering from anxiety, self worth issues and those struggling with life transitions. In addition, I work with non traditional couples and consider myself a sex positive therapist. I am also a trauma informed therapist and provide EMDR therapy for those suffering from trauma related concerns.

I understand that seeking professional help can be an intimidating experience. It often takes a brave and vulnerable decision. It also takes self-awareness, work and commitment. My style of counseling is empathetic, non-judgemental and direct. I would be honored to help you begin the journey to living a more authentic life.

As someone who has never interacted with a therapist before, Lisa made the experience amazing for me and surely brought in some concepts and tools I was never aware of, helping on a path of healing. Thank you, Lisa!

In my dealings with Lisa I have found her to be informative and succinct. She outlines exactly how she handles this type of platform and therapy. She is very knowledgeable and sends information that is informative and helpful. And also interesting!! 13/10 would recommend her.

Lisa has really helped me in leaps and bounds. The changes that I have made since I started working with her have had a huge impact on my life. It's also helped me become a lot more comfortable with myself and just made me happier in general. Lisa helped lift a very dark cloud that had settled over me for a very long time. And for that I will always be grateful.

Lisa Arce has aided me in changing my life for the better. I have struggled for years with things I never thought I could manage. With Lisa’s consistency, knowledge, and ability to hold me accountable for my actions and thoughts was exactly what I needed to start challenging mental illness and take control. She is wonderful, relatable, and so easy to talk to. 10/10.

Lisa is amazing! I am so lucky to have matched with her on my first time using the app. She is super available and quick to respond. Her style feels like you're talking to a friend more than being in a super professional type setting which can be overwhelming for someone who already has depression / anxiety / etc. I would and have recommended her to anyone and everyone.

Lisa is extremely easy to talk to and is always willing to talk to you at any time. Her schedule is flexible which makes it convenient to work into a busy daily schedule. She is knowledgable and is helpful in understanding why I am stressed and helps to work through it to destress and move forward, including short and long term goals.

Lisa has been extremely understanding and has offered me so many great perspectives on what I'm going through, I'm so grateful for her expertise and for giving me the tools to get a grip on my anxiety. I also appreciate how she's always on time for our sessions, even a little early, and sends me resources throughout the week to work on. I highly recommend.

Lisa is an incredible counselor. Her style is great, and she provided me with a handful of tools that I can apply in everyday life and professional situations. Besides the weekly sessions, she provides you with extra material so I easily worked on myself for appx. 3-4 hours a week. Great counselor, great experience, really thankful for how engaging and focused our work together was. Thank you!

Written by K.A. on Jan 22, 2019 after counseling with Lisa for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and self esteem

Lisa is really understanding with me and my issues. I can talk openly and also occasionally repeat myself without feeling overbearing or like a burden. So far I already notice a more positive thinking pattern after only a few weeks of counseling. Lisa has given me different tools to understand me and my thinking better and navigate both in a more positive way.

Written by T.I. on Oct 29, 2018 after counseling with Lisa for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and anger management

From day one of using BetterHelp, Lisa has been so beneficial and really a key person in helping me get to where I’m at today. I thought I’d need years of counseling, but really after 3 weeks so far, I can tell a huge difference in myself and my life. I owe that to myself for doing the work, but also, Lisa for all of the tools, information, insight, and really just being someone to listen when I so badly needed someone. I am forever grateful to her and this experience. I could tell just from my first chat session that she was a great fit for me and had the professional experience. She is very easy to talk to and take advice from. I was always able to send a message to her when needed outside of my video sessions. You can tell she has a passion in helping others and I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking for a therapist.

Lisa has been great, very attentive and responds in a timely manner. I have been able to express my feelings and she provide guidance. She has given me an open forum to say what I need to which has been so important for me to get past this experience I am in
