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.

Lisa is so wonderful to talk to. She responds in a reasonable amount of time and her thoughts are helpful and relevant. A few times I've asked her and mature people who've know me most of my life the same questions and received very similiar answers. She is perceptive and willing to delve into issue after issue. So much thanks to this fantastic person and her counseling skills.

I've loved working with Lisa this past month! She has helped me with anxiety and dealing with uncertainty in my life. She is a great listener and provides great advice and techniques on how to keep calm or talk yourself down from stressful situations. She has a very calm and comfortable approach and response time. Lisa is wonderful and I would recommend her to anyone I know.

Lisa has helped identify and break down specific problems in my way of thinking that have been holding me back in my life. Her supportive approach has made this hard work feel possible and even positive. Very grateful to her -- her patients are lucky to work with her.

Written by L.A. on Jun 15, 2018 after counseling with Lisa for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and eating

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.

Written by J.U. on Jun 13, 2018 after counseling with Lisa for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping, parenting, and self esteem

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!
