About Me

Life with purpose and peace. My goal is to help you move forward in your life. My name is Lisa Guerra, MA, LPC a counselor in Texas. Congratulations on taking the first step towards self-care. Counseling is a beautiful way to care for yourself. You are important, and the areas you are struggling in deserve time and attention. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, an evidence-based therapy that looks at our Thoughts, Behaviors, and Actions, and Gottman Method is used to help marriages find hope and healing.

Teens need to be heard, they need someone usually that isn't a family member to hear them. My goal is to help them find their confidence in spite of the social media world. This year has been very difficult for our teens. School from home, possibly grief over loss, loss from Covid, loss of friends, loss of social life, loss of progress, loss of extracurricular activities. Often times this causes our teens to feel confused about the future. The stability they had is now shaken. I will help them and you as their parents move towards well-being.

Although Betterhelp is not a place for immediate crisis care, I have experience recognizing issues that lead to crisis. I have worked with Law Enforcement as a mental health presence making 911 calls to adults, teens, children experiencing a mental health crisis. I was also a paramedic for 20 years and have experience in issues common to first responders.

I look forward to having an opportunity to help you move forward in your life.

I'm only 2 sessions in but already beyond pleased with the progress I've made with Lisa! I love her approach and the ease of opening up to her. So glad a friend recommended Better Help and even happier that they paired Lisa and me together!

Lisa listens and asks the right questions. I feel like she undestands my needs and helps me to develop some coping skills that I have neglected to develop over the years.

Lisa is first of all a very informed and prepared therapist. She has a lot of empathy and good listening skills. She immediately infused me with confidence and hope.
