About Me

Welcome one and all!
Let me introduce myself. I am Lisa. I'm a mother of four and grandmother of five. All exceptionally wonderful souls! I have lived a diverse life since leaving the nest in 1984 and serving my first tour of duty in the U.S. Army. I am a 14 year veteran with combat experience in Iraq in 2007. I also have over 5 years experience as a Corrections Deputy here in Michigan. I remain as a volunteer Firefighter after leaving a full time position as a Paramedic/Firefighter. Now, here I am a fully licensed professional counselor in Michigan (LPC). I have 3 years experience in working with adults with Substance Use Disorder where we see a vast majority also have issues dealing with depression, anxiety and traumatic past issues along with a myriad of other problems that leave people feeling stuck and unable to move forward. I approach each session as another extension of a journey. A journey that I want to be a part of as a partner walking beside you; and, not pushing you from behind nor dragging you along from in front.

Lisa is good. Listens extremely well and knows how to challenge thoughts through observations. Really great. Best therapist I've had in my 10 years of therapy.

Lisa is an incredible councillor. She connected with me especially well and was able to converse and guide me in a personable, enjoyable and compassionate manner. She has lots of quality knowledge & experience which is used to help in a variety of situations and her advice, council and help has been especially transformatice for me. On a more personal note, Lisa was exceptionally easy to talk to as she created a comfortable, low-pressure environment for all of our meetings which really helped. I can't recommend Lisa as a councillor enough, thank you for everything you've done so far!

With a few simple wise words Lisa after only a few sessions had changed my way of thinking and helped me release the past.

Having had a few sessions with Lisa, I feel well connected and supported. Her motherly instincts come across and is very caring and compassionate. The advice given so far is life changing.

Thank you for the support so far Lisa x
