Lisa is very considerate and make me feel comfortable sharing my thoughts and feelings. Sessions have been very free form and we're able to talk freely about any issue that we on my mind. She has helped me think of issues in a different lens and help me realize how I can deal with difficult situation in my marriage. She provides helpful guides and exercises. Thank you Lisa!
