I’ve been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) for the past 17 years and have worked in many different types of community services such as Geropsych, Hospice, Inpatient Psych and now working with Domestic Violence survivors and their alleged offenders - adults and children through the military. I’m also trained as a Forensic Child Interviewer. I’m well versed in personality disorders and mood disorders, along with aging and marital issues. I consider myself a Behavioral Therapist and use Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) as the main mode of therapy, but also use Mindfulness and Solutions Focused Therapy. I work a full time face to face job, Monday- Friday and work through BetterHelp part time Sunday - Thursday nights after hours, so I have limited availability, but I am consistent and respond to each and every person that responds 5 days a week. I absolutely love what I do and I look forward to meeting you, working with you and supporting you through the process of positive changes in your life!

Lisa is amazing!! She is very kind and understanding, I truly feel like she cares and wants to help, which means so much. You can tell that she wants the best for you, and I really appreciate the way that she gently approaches things. I immediately felt that I could trust her, and I'm very grateful to her.
