About Me

Welcome. I am a Psychologist licensed in Minnesota . For over 25 years, I have worked as a psychotherapist with many clients with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, stress management, relationship issues, parenting problems, grief and loss, and trauma. A particular interest has been providing support to parents and caregivers of teens and individuals with developmental and cognitive disabilities.

My counseling style is warm and supportive. I use a person centered approach focusing on the individual's strengths. Identifying one's strengths and coping skills that can be used to help work through various issues is an important part of my therapy approach. .I believe in building a relationship that is trusting, respectful and comfortable. I will work with you on achieving your goals and getting what you want out of therapy. I believe that each individual has the ability to overcome struggles but that sometimes having additional support in the form of therapy can help one to better identify and recognize the coping skills and strengths they already possess.

You have taken the first step in your journey to being a happier, healthier you. I would be honored to assist you on this journey.

I have only talked to Lisa twice, but she has been incredibly supportive and gives great advice. I can tell she cares about me. I would recommend her to anyone.

Lisa has been really great. I wasn’t sure if therapy via messaging would work for me, but I’ve found that without an end time to a session, and being able to send several messages throughout a week when I need to has been immensely helpful. As someone with a busy schedule, keeping regular appointments in the past isn’t something I’ve been able to do, so being able to message her whenever it works for me means that I’ve been able to stick with it much longer than with previous attempts.

Lisa is awesome! She listens well and makes sure to keep checking on me when I disappear. She asks insightful questions and helps me work through problems that lead to actions for change. Highly recommend her!

I’m still getting to know Lisa, but so far I am very happy with her responsiveness and suggestions. I feel comfortable being open and honest with her.
