One area of specialty is trauma .
My approach to psychotherapy/psychoanalysis is to provide a safe, non-judge mental and trusting environment where you can freely express your feelings. I believe each of us is striving to develop our own unique sense of self. We can do this together by identifying beliefs and behaviors that do not serve you and cultivating ones that do. This becomes a partnership. I am committed to helping you out of the darkness and into the light again. My training offers a wide variety of ways to achieve this task. Together we will follow closely your needs, desires and emotions.

Welcome! I help people with a variety of problems, from depression and anxiety to trauma and recovery. I can help you. I am a depth therapist (seeing causes, rather than only symptoms) and a somatic therapist (integrating a healthy mind and body), and I've found that more important than my background is a non-judgmental attitude, attention to your personal needs, and the quality of a collaborative therapy relationship. I'm on your side. My clients gain crucial insights, learn essential coping skills and dramatically improve their relationships, outlook, and prospects for the future. Their lives become much more vital and satisfying.

As you develop your curiosity and explore your larger Self, you begin to gain insights into past burdens and trauma that have contributed to your pain and unresolved issues in your life.
My therapeutic approach is based on the core principles of the therapies that make up my eclectic background. The core principles are (1) the assertion that each person possesses a healthy inner core, a deeper connection to the Self, and (2) that sharing one's inner qualities with others allows one to discover the benefits of this connection to the Self. And (3) that while fulfillment and happiness are not guaranteed in life, meaning and a sense of purpose are available regardless of circumstances.

My experience thus far has led me to clinical work around grief, chronic illness, childhood issues, and trauma .
Therapy is a unique environment where you can feel accepted without judgment. I offer ideas based on my education and experience to help facilitate your healing. In a safe space where you feel seen and heard, you can identify and build on the strengths that are already within. I have worked with clients from preschool-age to folks in their 80s. Many of my clients have no prior experience with counseling or have felt disillusioned by it in the past. In addition to talk therapy, I utilize EMDR, play therapy, sandplay, & other expressive modalities.

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!

I specialize in anxiety, depression, PTSD , teens, young adults, adults, and families (including foster care).
As an openly transgender therapist, I know it can be difficult to find the right person to confide in. Wanting to be loved and accepted doesn’t make you needy, or extra, or selfish, or weak. It makes you human. To me, you are not just some random psychology textbook or theory. In our work together, my focus is to build goals and a relationship where you feel comfortable exploring what you think, feel, want, and need. My style as a therapist is warm, relaxed, and conversational. I use playfulness, imagery, art, metaphors, curiosity, creativity, self-compassion, and humor when appropriate to support the therapeutic process.

I have extensive training in healing trauma through EMDR, Mindfulness-based somatic therapy, radical candor and humor.
Life can lead us down some pretty confusing paths sometimes, leaving us feeling crazy, unsettled, and totally lost. You don't have to feel like this forever. I work with individuals, couples, and teens who are really going through it - anxiety, panic and stress, relationship issues, PTSD , and unresolved issues that continue to impact current life. Many of my clients are insightful, curious, growth-oriented people who are seeking something beyond traditional therapy. My focus is on helping you to UN-learn all the crap you've taken on over the years that is weighing you down and freeing up whatever it is that seems to be stuck.

Both my skill as a therapist and my knowledge of East/ West Psychology aids me in providing essential knowledge and techniques for clients to affect change. I have been in the fields of therapy and mindfulness meditation for the last 20 years and in that time I have focused on integrating what works for those clients I have served. My work is informed by over two decades of exploration into the heart and mind. From the monasteries of Asia to the lecture halls of cutting edge American Universities.

I treat depression, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic attacks, phobias, PTSD , relationship anxiety, and anxiety related to medical problems.
My goal as a therapist is to provide a comfortable setting that allows you to get the greatest benefit from our work together. In addition to traditional office sessions, I offer flexible solutions including phone, teletherapy, or home visits. Emotional issues can trigger or make a significant contribution to anxiety, skin conditions, skin picking issues and hair pulling (trichotillomania) issues. Relaxation, visualizations, and a mixture of cognitive behavioral therapy and body-focused psychotherapy can make the difference. You can take more control by discovering how to manage your emotional triggers and by developing strategies to alleviate anxiety, skin issues, skin picking, and hair pulling.

Clients come to work on relationship improvement, anxiety, grief & loss, attachment, developmental changes, trauma recovery, and navigating other transformative experiences.
Every person has intrinsic value and worth- which is vitally important to remember when exploring one's personal journey. At times we forget and need gentle reminding. Having a skilled clinician to help shine a light on things that need attention or adjustment, sets us up for more of what we really want and need in life. Each person also holds a personal narrative, which contributes in shaping relationships and life choices, as well as contributes to problematic patterns and habits. Seeking support for a more fulfilling life and the restoration of what matters most, is nothing less than heroic. Call for a complimentary intake.

Trauma and PTSD Therapists
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychological reaction that occurs after an extremely stressful event, such as physical violence or military combat. Those suffering from PTSD have recurring memories of the stressful event and are anxious or scared even in the absence of danger. Flashbacks and nightmares are common symptoms as well.
