About Me

Are you ready to set sail for your new destination whether it be finding happiness, strength, or life purpose? Welcome! I have always been so proud, amazed and honored to witness such client resilience, throughout my more than 20 year career, in the human service field. After obtaining a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Psychology in 1996, I began my career by providing parent education and support in the many areas of being a parent, that include, but are not limited to the questions and challenges relating to child development, discipline, and communication. I continue such passion into today, even after deciding to expand my knowledge and practice approach to also provide counseling services, after graduating from RI College in 2009, with a Masters of Social Work degree. Over the last 10 years, I have been providing counseling services for individual children and adults, as well as in family format. I believe no single or same approach fits every person, and utilize a variety of interventions from strength based, client centered, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), trauma focused, insight oriented, solution focused therapy, as well as coping skill and self esteem development. Populations served have included 5 to 70 years old, and such clients have often presented due to symptoms of depression, anxiety, behavioral challenges, life transitions and challenges, as well as other related stressors. I am currently conducting sessions primarily through text live chat or video sessions, due to hearing impairment/legal deafness. I am not fluent in American Sign Language. If you prefer video sessions but tend to mumble, we may not be a good fit as I rely on lipreading combined with the natural sound of your clear and articulate speech. Hope to meet with you soon to embark you on your journey!

Lisa is a supportive, friendly, and solution-focused therapist who has been absolutely fantastic throughout my experience with her here at Betterhelp! Starting and Leaving each session with a goal to work on for the week was super helpful and allowed me to focus on manageable bits of the problem I was facing. Thank you Lisa!

I’ve really enjoyed working with Lisa! She always provides a great perspective and great advice and suggestions. I find myself applying her suggested strategies and reminding myself of her positive self affirmations throughout the day. Its all been so helpful in grounding myself through anxiety and stressful moments!

Lisa was very helpful in teaching me techniques to better handle stress triggers throughout daily life. She also blended her understanding of behaviors that are rooted from early childhood experiences, and how to recognize what is referencing them even in adulthood. I am very grateful to what I have learned from Lisa, and will continue to practice what I gathered from it throughout my life.
