About Lisa

About Me- In 1997 I began my career as a Social Worker working with children ages 5-18 who had complex mental health needs.  I served families who had children diagnosed as Severely Emotionally Disturbed (SED).  I then moved to a position working with at-risk pregnant and parenting teens.  I counseled teens and connected them with parenting, housing, educational, financial and mental health resources.  

For 13 years I provided individual, group, and classroom level counseling in schools.  Recently my private practice got so busy that I left my school position to pursue private practice full time.  Because I have experience in schools in addition to having a private practice, I’m able to understand how mental health diagnosis plays out in the classroom.  I love what I do and I’m lucky to be able to blend my school counseling knowledge with private practice.


Staying current on training and research in mental health is essential to my effectiveness as a therapist.  Throughout the year I attend workshops, read books and articles, and do coursework at home.  When I’m not working you’ll find me camping, reading, and taking walks with my family.
