I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Colorado, Hawaii, Washington and Florida. 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.
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Relationship issues, Parenting issues, Control Issues, Jealousy, Military and Veterans Issues, Mood Disorders, Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks, Polyamory / Nonmonogamous Relationships, Social Anxiety and Phobia

Lisa Watson really listens to my concerns even though it’s all only through chat messaging. It makes it really easy for me and although it sounds like the therapy session is less effort but it’s pretty efficient and impactful.

I joined Betterhelp because I was a mess of emotions and needed someone to talk to. Lisa guided me through it and helped me to be strong. She validated my feelings, gave me worksheets to do which were very helpful. She quickly texted me back. I really enjoy being able to text her whenever I felt like it. I am now getting a divorce and let him go! I can move forward feeling good about my decision and look forward to my next chapter in life. I appreciate Lisa’s help immensely and it was worth every penny!
