#NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS#Our journey through life is complex and for every person, will come with successes, joys, and pleasures as well as challenges, concerns, and problems. I believe it is important to view the whole person, within the context of their relationships, family, community and society to gain a better understanding of all that is helpful or unhelpful along this journey. I have been honored to support this journey for individuals of all ages when faced with concerns related to learning differences, school/work struggles, social/relational challenges, and the process of developing an identity that one can be proud of.

I am a Christian therapist that specializes in helping individuals create a stronger bond with Christ, heal from trauma, depression , anxiety, low self-esteem, and grief.
It's been hard. Sometimes it feels like every time you get back up, something happens to knock you down. You have experienced tragedy, loss, trauma, marital issues, or you feel like you're not good enough. You don't know what to do. Sometimes you wonder if God is even there or if He cares. Your faith is being tested but you have no one to talk to about your doubts and fears. Recently, you've been experiencing loneliness, depression , anxiety, loss of hope for the future, and you question your purpose. You ask yourself if your marriage will survive, or will I ever feel happiness and joy again. I'm here to help.

I feel most effective with clients experiencing complex trauma or PTSD, as well as self-esteem challenges and anxiety/ depression .
I see you over there, checking me out. Hi! My name is Lisa. My passion for helping people kicked into high gear after experiencing Alzheimer’s of a grandparent and meeting families with ill children when volunteering at Children’s Hospital of L.A. We all need a little help now and then and nobody should feel ashamed to ask for it. I love meeting clients’ “furry children” since pets are a wonderful emotional support – I have two. I enjoy sweets (guilty pleasure – we all have one), I believe in self-care (yoga, meditation, walks outside and playing music) and love comedy since laughter helps!

In my practice, some of the issues I assist others in exploring and managing are, interpersonal relationship, panic, anxiety and fear, work and relational stress, depression , angry management, physical and/or emotional trauma, effective communication, family-of-origin relations, parent/child dynamics and childhood trauma, and life transitions.
I believe that we all need someone to talk with who really listen and accept us as we are, without judgement. I provide my clients with that warm, nonjudgmental environment—a safe place to explore the issues that may be preventing you from living the life you want. I have had the opportunity to work with clients from all parts of the world, from different cultures and with diverse ideas about parenting, marriage, love, sexuality, gender identity and spirituality. I pride myself on being straightforward and honest and aspire to help connect individuals with their preferred self.

Whether you are an executive, a professional athlete or a frustrated parent, you want someone who will help you overcome depression , anxiety, addictions and many other problems.
People want straight talk from a psychologist, not psychobabble. They don’t want a passive therapist who just listens. Nor do they want a know-it-all to tell them exactly what to do. They want a competent psychologist who gives real feedback about what he sees going on. They want someone with real life experience who can relate to their problems as a professional, a parent or a child. Before becoming a psychologist, Dr. Evans had experience serving in the Peace Corps, running a business, getting married and having children.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in San Diego. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
