Lisa is a highly experienced Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in the treatment of anxiety, trauma, and substance use disorders. 

“I strive to help adults achieve access to what I believe are the 4 most important qualities in life: balance, purpose, connections and freedom. Balance in being able to practice great self-care while maintaining responsibilities; finding purpose in life when we wake up every day; creating strong interpersonal connections that satisfy our emotional and intimacy needs; and gaining the freedom that comes from breaking harmful patterns of behavior and negative self-talk.

For over 30 years I have helped individuals with anxiety disorders, depression, complex trauma and PTSD, parenting and relationship issues, life transitions, and substance use disorders. I draw from a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). After completion of a thorough assessment, we will develop an individualized treatment plan to guide and create a vision of what you want your life to look like when therapy is brought to completion.

My style is straightforward, active, and motivational, and I believe in the healing power of laughter. I invite you to join me as we work together to discover how we can develop those 4 qualities in your life, and build a safe, consistent, and trusting therapeutic alliance to help you reach your goals”.
