I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor in the states of Nebraska, Colorado and Iowa. My experience began while serving in the USAF, in California, providing care to service members and their families struggling with Post Traumatic Stress, Anxiety, Substance Abuse and difficulty adjusting to military life. As my experience has expanded since leaving service, I have had the opportunity to work with individuals living with Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, Personality Disorders and Severe Depression.
My counseling style has always been flexible and tailored to the person I am working with while ensuring we are following a model of therapy that is researched and shown to be successful. I have extensive training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Informed Care and in working with the LGBTQ population. I prefer an approach that highlights your strengths and follows your lead. I have no experience working with children, however I do have an interest area of working with struggling parents. With 2 children of my own and education in early childhood development I would love to begin working to help others navigate the world of parenting.
Whether you are wanting to navigate an unexpected life event, get a handle on life long anxiety or process through events from your past that still effect you today, I believe I can help you and fully believe everyone can recover.

Lisa is a very practical counselor who works with you on actionable, functional ways to improve your life today...not next week or next year. She has a very strong ability to get to know you quickly via text message. And I hear from her at least once a day. I feel very supported.
