About Me

We all want a happy and connected life, but sometimes achieving this feels impossible. Feelings of sadness, anxiety, fear, and loneliness take over, and it feels impossible to shake yourself loose. Eventually, we become overwhelmed and shut down under the weight of it all. Even the process of finding a counselor can feel stressful and unsure.
In counseling, we will work closely together to recognize what is no longer working and develop new skills that do. We begin the process of rebuilding and repairing together as a team, working towards your goal of a more fulfilled and happy life.

My passion is working with adults individually and in relationships. I specialize in relationship counseling, trauma, and sex therapy for women and relationships. I have been in the counseling profession for over thirteen years and my educational background includes doctoral level training in Clinical Psychology, a master's in school counseling (2007), a bachelor's in psychology (2004), and post graduate training in Psycho-Educational assessment (2018). Additionally, I have professional training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) (2019), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (2020), and I am currently in the process of completing the requirements to become a Certified Sex Therapist (CST).

I work with adults and relationships both online and in person. My approaches include Emotionally Focused (EFT), attachment, EMDR, and sex therapy. My sessions are structured, but relaxed, and I start by getting to know you, so counseling will always feel safe and comfortable. Throughout this process, I will invite you to communicate with me openly and honestly as well as provide several opportunities for you to practice new skills in session and in daily life. Using the skills learned in counseling, we will work together to achieve your goals and bring happiness back to your life.

Lisa is amazing! I experienced more personal personal growth and worked through a lot of personal baggage and childhood trauma that I have been holding onto for years.

Lisa provides a level of care that I haven't received before. I am hopeful for the future for the first time in a long time.

I have had two sessions so far ! Lisa is fantastic ! She listens, offers tools to help outside of the session & helps this idea of reaching out for help seem as normal as it can be. Im looking forward to our upcoming sessions !

This is my first time trying Better Help and I couldn’t be happier. I feel like my counselor really helps me a lot with understand myself and how to better handle situations. It’s been a great help.
