More About Lisa – RN, MA, LPCC
Lisa started with Directions Counseling Group in 2001 and serves as an independently licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. She has extensive experience working with individuals, couples and families. She has a Master of Arts in Clinical Pastoral Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary as well as advanced training in trauma and crisis recovery.
Working with clients in high-stress situations is a daily focus for Lisa. Her mediation training has helped people in various life situations including divorce, separation, blended families, and infidelity recovery. Life in any one of these situations can seem overwhelming at times, but Lisa has a special capacity to help individuals and families navigate the pain as they pursue a new normal. She also uses her training in trauma recovery to help individuals struggling with the depression, anxiety, and disturbing memories that often plague those who have survived sudden accidents, sexual or physical abuse, or traumas that occurred in the line of police, fire, or military duty.
Lisa believes that counseling does not always need to be a lengthy process. In most circumstances, she uses a results-oriented therapeutic approach referred to as Solution-Oriented Brief Therapy (SBT). Using SBT, Lisa helps clients identify their strengths and practical routes to recovery. Because SBT focuses on solutions it can be shorter in duration than other forms of counseling. Lisa also uses E-therapy or online counseling via webcam to accommodate clients who travel or prefer to engage in therapy from their home.
