Lisa is a great listener and has helped me find real solutions to problems I thought I had to work out on my own. She checks in often and gives me things to think about between sessions. I highly recommend her for her kind, compassionate, and down to earth conversations.

Lisa is easy to talk too. I enjoy our conversations with the new insights and coping mechanisms she's discussed with me.
