Lia Kamitsis is not currently accepting new clients.

I am a dedicated mental health counselor with varied background experience looking to help individuals achieve their maximum potential. Though I have worked in a number of areas in the mental health field, my true passion lies in helping individuals fully express and maximize their strengths and authentic selves. Whether clients are living with persistent mental illness, going through a change in life, or simply looking to enhance their connection to themselves and the world, I employ an eclectic counseling approach including humanistic, cognitive behavioral, and psychodynamic to assist in achieving those goals.

My professional background includes fluid interfacing with diverse populations, including in settings of adult psychotherapy, addictions (dual diagnosis) counseling, treatment planning, crisis intervention, Traumatic Brain Injury counseling, group and individual counseling, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities assessments, behavior planning, interdisciplinary care coordination, and mental health assessment intake evaluations.

Therapy conducted majority in English, though I am also fluent in German with ability to translate. Some competency in American Sign Language, though not fluent. Multicultural competency from educational background as well as personal life experiences and passion for working with diverse and LGBTQ populations.
