I am a social worker with over 20 years of experience working with clients from infants (support to parents) to geriatrics. We all have different experiences and that is what makes us unique and what makes counseling so exciting to me. I recognize you are the expert of your life, it is not my job to tell you how to live or what to do, but it is my desire that all clients end treatment with a few tools in their toolbox to better manage whatever circumstances may come their way. I am a down to Earth person and use a lot of analogies and education with clients when discussing ideas that may be new to them, so they can find the language to understand something or a skill to change the things that are not working for them any longer. Then you can take these ideas with you to use in the future.
I love helping clients find out more about themselves through conversation and discussions that focus on moving forward while understanding how they got where they are today. I often use a solution focused approach along with rational-emotive behavioral therapy. But switch it up based on the individual and their goals and needs. Together with the client goals will be set and reassessed consistently to make sure that what is being addressed is meeting their needs and assisting them towards ongoing wellness. One of the most important part of therapy for me is for you to know you are not in this alone.

Lisa is just what I need in a therapist… kind, straightforward, and honest. She helps me to reframe my thinking to better manage the stressors in my life. She puts me at ease and is so normal! I am so happy I was matched to her!
She’s very patient and understanding. She knows the Bible, she’s empathetic. She’s really nice too.
Very easy to talk to. She’s personable and really listens. She asks great questions and really makes you think from a different perspective. Looking forward to continuing working with her.
