I enjoy working with the LGBTQI community, Latinx population, people in the arts/entertainment industry, parents, young women (including adolescents), and mid-life women going through life transitions, infertility issues, or DV.
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!

Hello and welcome! I'm glad you are here. Juggling the multiple roles and relationships that society calls us into can be quite the challenge, and part of my reason for being a therapist is the desire to walk alongside individuals as they navigate life’s trials. I feel that our greatest challenges have the potential to lead us to the most free expression of self and guide us toward our most authentic path. I aim to provide a safe and openhearted experience for my clients where all aspects of the self are welcomed with warmth and curiosity.

I have worked with adult individuals and couples since 2005 both in short-term and long-term psychotherapy. My main orientation is psychodynamic and looking at personality development, but I also use cognitive-behavioral and neuroscience research. I am a preferred provider for many years with UCSB and sixty percent of my practice has been working with graduate students. We worked on anxiety, depression, self-esteem, sense of self, individuation, trauma, PTSD, OCD, personality disorders and phobias. While individuals makes up the main part of my practice working with couples is also a passion of mine.

Do you find yourself completely exhausted at the end of each day from the effort it takes to go through the motions? Maybe you spend so much time focused on internal worries or past experiences that you feel disconnected from those around you or like life is passing you by. The clients I work with share these struggles. Despite being hard-working, successful, and invested in their relationships, they often feel as though their efforts are never enough. They just don't feel like themselves. Whether you've been feeling this way for a while or noticed a recent shift, you deserve to feel like yourself again.

During these difficult times, how would your life be different if you had someone to speak with about the issues that you are struggling with NOW? What if you could have an intimate, stimulating and long-lasting love affair with your partner? Could you imagine yourself, your partner or a family member learning how to take responsibility for thinking, feeling and behaviors so that life was satisfying and successful rather than stressful and disorganized? Well...that is possible.

I am devoted to growing and developing throughout life. There is always the possibility of bringing inner change to our lives. Moments occur in us when we experience a certainty that we need to change, and we are compelled to know about the deeper meaning of our lives. These are transformative moments that give depth and meaning to our lives.How can we cultivate deep caring for ourselves? I work collaboratively and synthesize the ideas of contemporary relational psychoanalysis and attachment theory in order to process experience and develop new and more meaningful and joyful patterns of life and relationship.

On the outside, you make success look easy, though it comes at a cost. You hide parts of yourself leaving you wrestling with shame, guilt, self-esteem, or loneliness. In turn, relationships may feel constantly unsatisfactory. Through my supportive and calm nature, I work to offer a safe space that recognizes the tension within yourself and others, so you can move closer to your authentic self. I can help you improve communication, manage emotions, and create a healthy relationship with yourself and others. I am passionate about empowering you to live the life you love by deepening your insight and finding practical solutions.

Don’t keep waiting for things to change. If you found yourself here, you may be feeling down, confused, or lost. Perhaps things seem to be going from bad to worse or nowhere at all. You have likely been going it alone, but you deserve better. Seeking therapy can be scary, I know, but won’t it be just as challenging to let everything continue? You need some support, and though things may seem like a lot right now, I know how to help you through this.
