This includes children, adolescents, adults, families, couples, parents, groups, communities, students, & professionals experiencing depression, anxiety, & ADHD.

My Background and Approach

Lisa utilizes a holistic and integrative approach to psychotherapy based on client needs. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, strengths-based, person-centered, solution-focused, family-systems, psychoeducation, and meditation are some of the evidence-based practices. Empathy, compassion, trust, and unconditional regard are the foundation of the therapeutic relationship with Lisa.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Lisa is a Certified Compassion Fatigue Professional. Through telehealth, Lisa is focused on supporting professionals, including helping professionals such as psychotherapists, supervisors, administrators, and healthcare professionals to improve or sustain their overall well-being and quality of life. Licensed psychotherapists, especially those practicing solo, may benefit from individual consultation. Whether you are a new professional, a professional in transition, or a professional nearing retirement, you may identify strengthening healthy coping strategies, self-compassion, self-care, and resiliency as your goal(s) in therapy. COVID-19, moral injury, fatigue, job burnout, organizational changes, and overall workplace challenges require attention and care. YOUR health and overall well-being matter. Let’s schedule a time to speak by phone to discuss your referral. Psychotherapy will be collaborative and supportive.
