About me

Are you feeling stressed, confused, depressed, anxious, or angry?

Do you have a teen or child with emotional or behavioral problems?

Do you want to feel happier, more passionate, more satisfied with your life and relationships?

Are you having difficulty communicating your needs within your relationships or career?

Often, life gets away from us before we realize how quickly things have changed. Life is a process of personal growth and evolution. It is also a process of building and maintaining relationships with people in a world that is constantly in flux.

If you are looking to develop greater insight into these concerns, counseling is a great place to start.

In my Individual Therapy and Family Therapy practice, I focus on partnering with you to explore challenges around interpersonal relationships, behavioral problems, sexual identity and behaviors, self-esteem, core beliefs/values, and many other aspects of life.

In counseling, I also incorporate techniques from a variety of theoretical orientations, placing an emphasis on collaboration and client-identified goals. I explore with clients how emotional and psychological obstacles from the past and in the present interfere with attaining goals and optimal day-to-day functioning.

My innate curiosity, desire to help, and love for people, allow me to create a healing environment for my clients and provide them with results.

As the poet Khalil Gibran said, "To get to the dawn of a new day, you must first pass through the darkness of a night." It is actually during these times of great hardship that individuals find great rewards.

I am a Tennessee-based psychotherapist with more than fifteen years of experience treating children, adolescents, adults, and families. I have extensive training in CBT, DBT, EMDR, Motivational Interviewing, and psychodynamic modalities and specialize in treating trauma (PTSD; abuse). I use a flexible, eclectic, and highly individualized approach to my work. With a relatable and "real" style, I assist patients in identifying areas of concern, deepening self-awareness, developing and achieving realistic goals for their treatment.

I have been in therapy with Lisa for a year. My mother passed away, family went nuts blaming each other here and there, plenty of betrayals, some of the family members almost losing their sanity, and other family issues that I had to deal at the same time. Lisa helped me a lot to keep me sane and carry me to the light again. Her patience and expertise guided me to be a better human being..

Being connected to my therapist has been so helpful. Before talking with Lisa, I felt like I kept doing the same things over and over because I didn’t have the knowledge /tools to break the pattern.

Work with me!
