Hi my name is Lisa Tuthill and I am a License Professional Counselor (LPC). I hold my LPC in the state of Wyoming where I lived for ten years. I currently live in California and have been in the mental health field for over 15 years. Over the last 6 years I have also pursued a Spiritual Coaching Certification. Along with my Mental Health practice I also work in my coaching practice with Individuals that relate to being Highly Sensitive and Empathic. Specifically those in the health and wellness entrepreneurship role. My approach to counseling and coaching is to provide an environment that allows you to feel comfortable and safe to open up about what you would like to work on. I have what I call a tool bag that allows me to find what fits for each client as we are all unique. Some techniques I use is a Mindfulness through the holistic approach. I believe it is important to be able to ground ourselves as we continue through our journey in this world. My approach is also to get to know the client and meet them where they are at emotionally.

5 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed clinical therapist in Wyoming with over 30 years of experience as a social worker. I have spent my entire career serving youth and families often involved in the criminal justice and foster care system. I am a strong believer that every child deserves a permanent family, either through safe family reunification, adoption or guardianship. I also strongly advocate that children have the right to be raised with their family if it is safe. One of my greatest joys is working with alumni of the foster care system as they break cycles of negative behaviors and practice new skills to raise their children in a healthy safe home. Serving this population I have developed skills for depression, anxiety, abandonment, trauma, all forms of abuse and neglect, parenting, relationships and special needs of children of incarcerated parents and the incarcerated parent. I work with families on adoption preparation, disruption and the importance of birth family involvement and management. As a foster and adoptive parent I have learned to draw on my experiences but be open and willing to listen and brainstorm new ways to help youth and families heal. My counseling style is relaxed with an appropriate sense of humor. Dignity and respect are rights everyone human being deserves. and I honor different perspectives and lifestyles. I use solution focused, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, person centered therapies. I will start where people are and walk with them towards healing.

30 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am licensed as a Professional Counselor and a School Psychologist in Wyoming with 30 years of professional work experience. I moved to Wyoming from where I was raised in the Midwest after completing undergraduate school, and and stayed after completing my graduate program from Central Missouri University. I specialize in working with victims of trauma and abuse. I have focused particularly on the issues of women who have suffered traumatic experiences and have problems coping with life's demands as a result. Those problems range from negative body image to failed interpersonal relationships, and everything else in between. For ten years I co-facilitated a male sex offender group, so my experience has included helping those men find out why they offended and work toward not repeating those behaviors. During that time, I had many clients that were sexual addicts, and worked with them on how to interrupt their cycles of acting out. I also have extensive experience in helping clients with relationship issues and family conflicts, including working with couples on bettering their relationships. Additionally, I have worked with many parents that have problems with getting along with their children, as well as coping with the grief that accompanies the loss of a child. As a School Psychologist, I have extensive training and experience in working with individuals with disabilities, specifically mental and learning disabilities, as well as children with emotional disabilities. Everyone deserves respect and compassion, and I bring that belief with me to my work. I will work with you on developing a treatment plan to meet your specific needs, then help you take action to meet your personalized goals. By taking this first step of exploring ways to learn to help yourself tells me that you are ready to do the work to make yourself happier and more fulfilled. I am here to support you in that process.

I am a licensed in counselor Colorado with over 20 years of experience working with adolescents, families and individual women . I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, behavioral concerns, learning disabilities and ADHD. I have also helped many people work through physical trauma, emotional abuse and the difficult journey through grief. I enjoy getting to know people and learning what life has been like through their eyes. I do not view life struggles as defeats or places of shame, I see these difficult circumstances as times where God is showing us our deep need for Him and His deep love for us. My therapy approach is cognitive behavioral and person centered. Many people are helped by having the opportunity think about their family history and life experiences and how these combine to impact the present struggle. Over the years I have learned that people receive the most help in counseling when their therapist gives attention to the whole person by exploring the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual side of their struggles. Life is so complex and our problems likewise become very complex and overwhelming. Often times change can come through making the complex more simple. My strength as a therapist is in my ability to encourage, support, and shower people with mercy as they tackle their therapy goals. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. Reaching out for help is a big step towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to help you meet your therapy goals. I look forward to working with you!

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Lost Springs counselor?

Before seeing your Lost Springs therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Lost Springs.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Lost Springs licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Lost Springs counselor can be dependent on your process.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Lost Springs, Wyoming can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you.
