About Me

Life can be very difficult, at times, and situations develop when a person can feel "stuck" and have difficulty seeing a way out. I utilize an eclectic approach to counseling and aim to generate a comfortable environment which will eliminate that "under the microscope" feeling, some people tell me they fear when seeking counseling. I initiate counseling with person centered, solution oriented strategies, which will allow the client to begin taking steps toward relieving stress while generating hope for a more fulfilling future. I utilize, active and reflective listening, mirroring, Rational Emotive Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, as well as re-framing, and occasionally homework to help enable self motivation and the confidence to achieve personal life successes. I believe that people can learn the confidence to deal with many difficult situations, with encouragement, compassion, self understanding and the acquisition of new skills to approach problems which may arise in the future. Though I have studied and respect many religions and will do my very best to remain aligned with your personal beliefs, I do not provide religious counseling.

I have a MA in counseling from the University of South Florida, with a focus on mental health. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor Supervisor in the State of Ohio. I started my career in Florida nearly 27 years ago and have my primary experience in dealing with trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD and bipolar disorder . I have extensive experience helping adult survivors of abuse as well as having presided over a group home for sexually abused girls.

I am not formal or rigidly structured in my counseling method. I believe in treating each person individually and it takes a bit of time to learn about each person's perceptions and history. I work toward being compassionate, understanding and patient in my efforts to help you discover solutions for problems you are experiencing.

I look forward to working with you!

Lisa great! She listens to me and doesn't treat me a number.

After only 2 sessions, I believe I was matched with the perfect therapist for my situation. She knows my tendencies and nature, as well as how to help my problems perfectly.

Written by T.A. on May 23, 2022 after therapy with Lisa for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Lisa has been wonderful to work with. She’s helped me question some of my repetitive thinking and realize that I’ve made up “rules” in my own head that don’t serve me. I haven’t worked with her very long but I already find myself coming back to things she’s said when I’m experiencing difficulties. Shes great and I’d 100% recommend her!

I am only a few sessions into therapy with Lisa, but I so appreciate her already. She is quirky in a way that feels relatable and real to me, is a great active listener, and makes me feel comfortable to share or let her lead the conversation. I look forward to continuing to work with her.

I felt a fairly instant connection to Lisa. She gets me. She's very approachable and made me feel extremely comfortable confiding in her. So far it's been great!

She understands my plight and empathizes with me in a really human way. She also shares insight into what others can be doing to influence my own thought pattern and ways I could think about myself in those situations. I feel like I can actually talk to someone now.
