Some of the settings include Psychiatric inpatient, Community mental health clinics, Public School District( mental health) , Substance abuse and Geriatric health, to name just a few. I am energetic and have been described as , honest, caring , hardworking, upbeat ,open-minded, and knowledgeable. I have been known to utilize different therapeutic approaches depending on the concerns of the individual. I try to make each person feel as comfortable as possible. I treat everybody with the utmost respect, just the way I want to be treated. I am a good listener and I like others to feel like they are in a safe space when we are working together. I love to laugh and when appropriate, laughter can be quite healing. If you think based on this brief synopsis of myself, that I may be a good fit, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Lisa was warm and caring

Ms Lisa is God sent. I could not ask for a better therapist. She listens and will make you laugh and I am only still going because of her.

I always looked forward to my sessions with Lisa. She is very unassuming, and I was very surprised when I suddenly realised that the changes I was looking for were taking place. She is very empathetic and understanding; a very good listener. If you are looking for someone to take charge, this may not be the person for you. However, if you need someone to listen and help you find your way through the maze of life, Lisa is great. If I do return, I would love to be matched with her again.
