Lisa works with children, adolescents’ adults and families through the use of psycho- educational activities and interventions which are client-specific and family-oriented. She is very supportive and collaborative with her clients and has worked extensively over the past 10 years with adolescents and young adults with disabilities including Asperger’s Disorder, Attention -Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, depression and anxiety. Lisa is also adept in social skills development, career exploration, self-esteem building, self-care and stress management. Lisa has a background in working with loss and grief, as well as trauma-informed care and believes that much can be said and felt through the creative process when words do not suffice. She enjoys using different modalities including the use of expressive arts, music, and mindfulness with all ages from small children to adults.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is also part of her therapy with clients and she uses it to help reframe past problems and access a more positive outlook of hope, accomplishment and understanding of self and others. Strength-based and client-centered, Lisa believes that your history does not have to be your destiny.
