About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Clinical Hypnotherapist. I have been working in the field for 20+ years. I utilize an eclectic approach to help improve your quality of life and to obtain the skills needed to accomplish your objectives. Interventions that may be used are Hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Experiential Therapy in treating issues such as Addiction/Substance Abuse, Dual-Diagnosis, Abuse, Depression, Anxiety, Grief/Loss, and Trauma-related disorders.

Awareness is the first step toward creating a positive change in one's life and helping people to heal. By beginning an inner journey of self-exploration, we can create this change together. The well-being of my clients and providing a safe, comfortable environment are of vital importance. Collaboratively, we will work to develop a therapeutic relationship based on mutual trust, honesty, and respect; to accomplish your goals; and to make a positive change in your life.

I know it is not always easy to take the first steps in asking for help. If you are ready to move forward, I am here to help and support you.
I look forward to working with you!

Lisa is the best. She always listens and gives me great tools to help calm my anxiety and tools to help me reflect on my feelings.

Lisa is an excellent therapist. She is exactly the type of therapist I was in need of right now. She is supportive while still being able to push me to deal with issues. I look forward to continuing to work with her. Thank you

I came to Lisa with several things I wanted to work through and improve upon. She spent adequate time going over each one with me to get to the root of the issue; I could tell she was listening with full attention and intent to make a difference. From then, she's worked with me to make progress in each of those areas. She never fails to address each area with me during our sessions and always leaves me with new ideas, tasks, and affirmations to help my progress. I am so grateful to receive her kindness and expertise.

I feel that Lisa truly listens to me. She is not only helpful, but also makes you feel comfortable and safe. I feel like I can rely on her.
