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.

Lisa educates as well as listens along the way. I appreciate her ability to allow me to come to my own conclusions. She has provided me with various tools and education to better manage the life obstacles I’ve been juggling lately. I highly recommend. I may need to take a break from Better Help financially and hope I have an option to choose her as my therapist when I return.
