About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker/counselor working in Murphy NC. I have over 25 years of experience working with individuals, families, adolescents, youth, and children. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and more. I am a trained professional in trauma related issues.
My counseling philosophy is one of mutual respect and acceptance. I believe that all people have struggles at times and we often learn coping behaviors that get in our way in later circumstances. All people can benefit from a warm and interactive therapeutic experience. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, and a non-invasive therapy called EMDR, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. I will tailor your therapeutic experience to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to come to therapy for the first time. I desire to support you in seeking a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I am so happy Better Help matched me with Lisa! I think that’s one of the advantages of the Better Help platform. Since there is a greater number of therapists in their network and you aren’t restricted by region, you’re able to be matched to someone that really fits your needs.

Anyways, back to Lisa - I’ve been seeing her weekly for about 2 months and she’s been a great listener and communicator. She also lightens the mood when needed. It’s hard to talk about your feelings, but Lisa makes it easier. She’s been super helpful with my past and current family problems. Cannot recommend her enough in this short review.

Lisa is simply amazing! She is knowledgeable, highly educated, and down to earth all at the same time. She makes it very easy to open up to and has constructive insight. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I found my session with Lisa really helpful. She was very supportive and understanding. I definitely feel better having spoken to her.
