My name is Jalisa and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over five years of experience providing therapy services. I have worked in a wide range of therapeutic settings to include: inpatient psychiatric hospital (adolescents), residential behavioral treatment facility, a medical hospital (working within a pediatric intensive care unit), as well as within higher education. I have experience working with clients affected by depression, anxiety, substance use, trauma and relationship challenges from individual, group and family work.
The majority of my professional career has been working with youth/adolescents, as well as their families within the home, school, or community setting. I recognize that this can be an extremely challenging time for teens and families, and hope to utilize the skills and techniques learned through my training in the evidence based model of Functional Family Therapy (FFT) to support you.
I do not take it lightly that you have chosen me to support you during what may be a challenging time in your life. My hope is to aid you in living a more empowered and peaceful life!

Jalisa has been a joy to work with. My partner and I really appreciate her attention to detail, her positive outlook and overall attitude, and her knowledge.
My daughter has had one session with Jalisa Lewis. From the beginning, she felt a good connection. She felt listened to and respected. We are looking forward to having Jalisa Lewis continue her work with our daughter.
She is good at what she does
I enjoy my sessions and feel lighter afterwards. I thank Jalisa for her kind disposition and thoughtfulness during our sessions.
