I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialist that has worked as a School Social Worker for 14 years. I have also worked as a SPARCS facilitator and substance abuse clinician for a Juvenile Detention Center for 9 years. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, substance use disorders, and chronic stress. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy 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, psychotherapy, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards 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 easy to talk to because she is a good listener and asks good questions. She provides exercises to help you work through the things you discuss. I like her calm, encouraging manner.
