About me

Welcome and congratulations on taking your first step toward a happier life and lasting change.

My name is Lisa McKinney and I am family and marriage therapy licensed in the State of Florida and the State of Virginia with over 25 years of experience working as a psychotherapist in many different settings.

I have collaborated with clients in a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, eating disorders, women’s issues, adoption, and infertility. I have also worked with the US Navy Crisis Response Team after service members experience trauma while deployed.

My therapy style is warm, interactive, positive, and infused with humor. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My theoretical perspective combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, family, strategic and solution focused interventions. We begin our journey building a strong therapeutic connection which will help us then identify clear treatment goals. This plan will act as our roadmap toward problem resolution.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling, happier life and to take the first steps toward that change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

One last note, I am NOT a CRISIS COUNSELOR. I am unable to provide the type of support needed for crisis counseling at this time.

I look forward to working with you!
