About me

Dr. Lisa Sullivan

Are you a smart and driven parent dealing with myriad demands from your children, spouse, employer, family, and/or community? Is your life good, but not at the level of fulfillment that you desire? Are you ready to experience positive change? If so, let’s connect. I am a Ph.D. psychologist with experience in successful clinical therapy. And, importantly, I too have personally dealt with the real-world challenges of living a driven lifestyle in the face of today’s challenges.

My academic training coupled with hands-on experience provide the analytical tools to identify and help resolve the root cause of constraints that inhibit true fulfillment. I am particularly effective with parenting challenges (including parenting children with learning differences), women’s issues, relationship concerns, midlife crises, anxiety, and somatization (the physical expression of stress and emotions through the mind-body connection). I use both client-centered and solution-focused therapies to generate true fulfillment and personal success.

I earned my Ph.D. in clinical psychology in 2000. Thereafter, I provided professional services, including psychological test assessments, to adults, adolescents and children. I am licensed in clinical psychology in California.

Dr. Sullivan has been an amazing asset to me as I navigate my journey post partum and through grief and past trauma. She always listens and gives great feedback. She has been so gentle and kind with me which is exactly what I need during this sensitive time in my life.

Dr. Sullivan is a gifted, caring counselor. She is helping me sort through a challenging life situation and has offered excellent tools for me to utilize. Our weekly sessions offer a safe and compassionate space to talk, and her wisdom helps me navigate, heal and grow. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Sullivan is a great person to talk to and has really helped me with my confidence and anxiety so far. I’m so glad we were matched together. I have opened up to her more than I have opened up to anyone else and it has truly helped me understand how I’m feeling and what could be the possible roots to those feelings.
