About Me

Hi, I’m Lisa Marie, and I’m so glad you’re here. It takes tremendous courage to seek support for a personal matter, and I appreciate you taking the time to learn about my practice.

I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice with over 15-years of professional experience working with teens and adults across many settings. I specialize in developmental and complex trauma, anxiety disorders, process addictions, disordered-eating behaviors, and relational and attachment issues. Through a trauma-informed, cross-cultural perspective, I creatively integrate somatic and experiential therapies, mindfulness principles, and holistic practices to create a balanced, whole-person approach to healing and personal growth.

My therapeutic style is collaborative and dynamic, emphasizing the intimate relationship between the human body and psychological wellbeing. Learning to listen and trust our body’s innate wisdom is an effective strategy for building self-trust and self-worth, two critical components of a healthy relationship with our authentic-Self. I encourage clients to use body-centered exercises, visualization, and artistic expression to find their voice and reconceptualize their fears with a more direct approach.

Emotional safety is paramount when helping clients process their trauma, work through complex emotions, and address maladaptive behaviors. With compassionate intention, I hold space for clients to be vulnerable and share their sacred stories. As a transformational alchemist, I help clients transcend their limiting beliefs by exploring creative ways to utilize their unique strengths to foster personal growth and success.

It would be my pleasure to join you on your journey towards emotional health and wellness.

Dr.Drew is a great therapist, she really takes her time to listen to you. I like that she’s very patient and understanding. My sessions with her feel care free and non judgemental. I feel like I can be myself. It’s nice to meet someone that is true to her profession and herself. She really is a kind and compassionate person. Dr. Drew has helped me tremendously in my growth and continues to guide me. I would recommend her to anyone.

Lisa has helped me so much in the time that we've spent together. She's extremely kind and thoughtful. I've learned a lot about myself and I couldn't have done it without her. I would highly recommend speaking with her.

Lisa is truly knowledgeable and compassionate. In this time of working with her she has been so engaging. Lisa has shared many good resources and has been helping me to work through past and present life experiences stemming from trauma, grief and moments of addiction/ patterns that feel negative with a new and hopeful perspective. It is truly appreciate working with her and communication never feels forced. I genuinely recommend Lisa (thank you so much)!

In such a short time I have truly bonded with Lisa. I have grown in leaps in bounds with her guidance and wisdom. I have no doubt she’s one of the best. Lisa always gets back to me when I need her. I recommend this app to everyone I know. Thank you!!!

Lisa is overall such a great therapist. I was hesitant to try virtual therapy, but after the first session with Lisa, all of my worries went away. It's amazing how her kindness and genuine concern translates through the screen. I love that I can talk about anything and she will always have a way to break things down in ways that I hadn't thought of before (and I'm someone who likes to think that I understand my flaws). I look forward to our sessions every time.

Lisa Drew is a caring and helpful person. She really takes an invested interest in your mental health and tries to guide you in the best direction. I feel like I actually have someone who is genuinely interested in how I feel and doesn’t just brush me off.

Lisa is very compassionate and really listens to my concerns

Written by R.E. on May 24, 2021 after counseling with Lisa for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, eating disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I am new to therapy and was looking for a therapist that could sit down and help me break down patterns in my behavior (as well as thought processes and past trauma) in order to better understand myself. When I had a couple sessions with my first therapist on betterhelp, I would talk about my day or a topic of my choice and the therapist would be an ear to listen. While this technique may help other individuals, I went looking for more. I read Lisa's bio about her methods with therapy and knew immediately that she would be a good match for me. After my first session with her, I excitedly scheduled my next session. Lisa is so attentive with the way she approaches our sessions. She points out if there is a certain tone in my voice or a facial expression, and, together, we break down what it may mean. So far I've only had two sessions with Lisa but I have learned so much about myself and the world around me. I cannot wait to see what else she has in store for me.
