Hi. I’m Lisa and welcome to Better Help! I know this first step is one of the hardest, yet you are doing it!
I am licensed as a clinical professional counselor in Illinois and have 33 years of experience. My upbringing led me to the helping field. I’ve done my own work through therapy so I know what it feels like to be on “the other side.”
I have practiced at a community mental health agency, hospital-based eating disorders treatment program and a university counseling center. I draw on various approaches and will work with you to personalize counseling to what you need. Ask all the questions you need to be informed.
Clients have shared they find me caring, non-judgmental and very helpful to them. I will ensure you feel safe, heard and go at a pace you are comfortable with. My style is personal, relaxed and I will provide direct feedback and challenges if you are up for it.
Things I enjoy outside of career are exercise, being outside/gardening, coffee, chocolate, time with my companion animals, watching funny videos, and keeping up on social justice issues.
I think it’s important for people to “interview” a therapist to see if it feels like a good fit, so I hope you will contact me to see if it feels like we can work well together. Regardless, best wishes and take care.

After researching counselors and even interviewing some on Better Help for a couple of weeks, I decided to go with Lisa Fix. I absolutely made the right decision.
She has a sensitive disposition, she listens well and asks great questions which helps me to think about things in new ways.
If you want a compassionate counselor who listens and provides great feedback and thoughtful analysis then Lisa would be a great counselor for you .
