I was able to make great progress with Lisa.
I was provided with strategies that helped with dealing with certain issues.
Lisa is very observatrice and has made me consider my perspectives in different a different way.
I would strongly recommend Lisa to everyone.

Finding Lisa on teen counseling has truly changed my life for the better. There is absolutely nothing I can throw her way that she doesn't have guidance for. Having a safe space and an outlet for all of my thoughts and fears has been the biggest blessing. Feeling comfortable and heard is most important to me, and with Lisa I am free to feel how I feel and say what I need and know that I am heard and never judged. Lisa is extremely insightful, and I have benefited so much from my sessions with her the last three months!

Working with Lisa has been a great experience. She is kind, energetic, and present. She not only listens well but consistently provides thought-provoking responses that allow you to dive deeper into the heart of the issue.

Lisa is very attentive and understanding. She has helped me with a few very serious issues I was having and she is great to talk to.
