"I had been on a variety of medications with varying but limited degrees of success. I've struggled with depression and anxiety since I was a teenager. Working with Lisa was such a blessing. Lisa is an advocate of goal based therapy where I was able to determine what I wanted to accomplish between sessions. By working on my goals, I felt like I was really working to solve my problems rather than just wallowing in them. Lisa also helped me develop specific relaxation techniques that I use almost every day both at home and at work."

"Trying to find a person you do not know to talk to can be a very scary thing. When you first sit down in Lisa's chair all those fears go away. She is compassionate and truly wants to get to the root. She gave me the tools I needed to start the process of moving on. You feel like you have accomplished something at the end of your session. A weight has been lifted and you walk away like you can do this."
