Everyone has times in their lives when stress is overwhelming. At these times, talking with a skilled, compassionate psychotherapist can help you increase your self-understanding and ability to cope with and change what keeps you from feeling like yourself and from moving in a positive direction.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor it is my goal to help others discover the solutions and strategies that they feel will work best to solve problems and lead to a more balanced life. As well as having a passion for supporting moms and families, I am also passionate about LGBTQIA issues and assisting those struggling with substance use. I enjoy using humor, analogies, and relating issues from everyday life to pop culture references that are meaningful for the individual I am working with.
Welcome! If you are here, chances are that you are looking for help. That's okay! Everyone needs help sometimes. In my experience, it's better to ask for it and get it than to struggle and continue to beat yourself up over things. Even for people who don't believe they need counseling/therapy, there are many things they could work on to improve themselves. Whether it's relationships, school or career performance, problem solving or just wanting to become a better person, I believe I can help. Don't you deserve a better, happier life?
You matter! Making the decision to seek out therapy can feel like a big step. However, sitting with difficult emotions or situations can be the more challenging choice. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have supported children, families and adults in working through an array of challenges, from depression, anxiety, trauma, behavioral concerns and difficult family dynamics. Working with you to identify your challenges and create goals can help work through those difficulties.

Understanding your experiences & emotions is the gateway to change. I believe people can change, even when they struggle to believe that they can. I strive to help clients learn new skills, or enhance those they are already using, in order to improve all areas of their lives. Imagine how differently you might feel if you could overcome the obstacles that keep you feeling stuck in your life & relationships. Patterns that no longer work for you can be reshaped and built upon to make the most of who you are and want to become.

Addiction is giving up everything for one thing. Recovery is giving up one thing for everything.

**CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** Life is not easy and in this increasingly disconnected society, we often feel alone even when living among the people that we love. As an experienced therapist, I offer a connection built on honesty, authenticity, and empathy. By developing and fostering this connection, we can face your pain together while also uncovering and challenging blocks that hinder your own ability to heal yourself. I use a variety of modalities to help each person meet his or her goals, though EMDR and Interpersonal Process Therapy are my most common approaches to treatment.
"What hurts the most is pretending it doesn't." Reaching out to others for help is never easy, going it alone is even harder. Life sometimes provides us with demands, challenges and obstacles that sometimes can become overwhelming. Do you have a rough time at school, tired of arguing with your parents. Are you struggling with relationships, going through a breakup/divorce. Maybe your suffering from anxiety, stress or depression. While creating a supportive environment we can work together on building a solid foundation and begin to change how you see others, how you see circumstances and more importantly how you see yourself.
I understand it takes a tremendous amount of courage to enter therapy. My intention is to offer a supportive, compassionate, evidence-based model of treatment particular to the goals of the client. Please feel free to contact me or visit my website at www.lisaoneillmft.com if you have any questions on how therapy might benefit you,or your family.
Accepting New Clients - Have you ever felt like there is something that needs to change, but find yourself stuck and unable to take that first step? or experienced high anxiety, depression, and can't seem to find the solution to your life problems? Your first step towards healing is here and now! Our work together will begin the process of reconnecting and healing internal wounds, in which I hope to compassionately help you connect and uncover the narratives you have subscribed to for so long.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I approach my time with clients from both an individual and relational point of view. I believe it is vital to explore self-awareness and interpersonal relationships in order to understand what may be interfering with living a more fulfilling life. I understand that not everyone responds to the same experiences in the same way and that therapy needs to be designed to fit each individual clients’ needs based on their own histories and experiences. I will collaborate with you to make therapy a place that fits your needs.
Welcome! Wouldn't it be nice if you could remove stress from your relationships and have peace and understanding? As a licensed marriage and family therapist my focus is on strengthening the family unit. This is done by meeting with individuals and sometimes whole families. Family therapy emphasizes each family member's unique and important role in the family, improving relationships and building a strong supportive family unit. Assisting you to achieve these goals at your own pace can bring positive change in relationship interactions.
I am committed to creating a caring, accepting and non-judgmental environment in which clients feel understood, valued, and safe to open up, explore and express their thoughts and feelings. I work with symptoms of anxiety disorders including panic, OCD and phobias using the most effective evidence-based, shorter-term cognitive behavioral and mindfulness based therapies which help reduce acute symptoms within weeks. For people seeking to overcome longer term depression, anger, low self-esteem and self-defeating habits that keep them from living life more fully, I use longer term insight-oriented psychotherapy.
As an Adjunct Professor, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor with more than 18 years experience, I believe the best way to conduct therapy is through understanding the relationship you have with yourself first. This relationship then translates to happier connections with others including parents, spouse, partner, co-workers, and co-dependent relations including various addictions. By improving your relationships in all aspects of your life, you will see results in decreasing your anxieties and depression. Located in Torrington (glass building). Accepting HUSKY, BCBS, etc.
Perhaps you want to move beyond trauma which has held you back in life or receive support when life feels overwhelming.

An approach that sees you as whole, perfect in your own way and just needing support to discover your strengths and unique gifts. Yet, maybe you are ready to go the next step to a higher level of living and embodying your truth. Whatever reason you are here, it would be my honor to support you.
