The basis of any good counseling relationship is finding someone you can connect with and who seems to "get you". I strive to provide an environment that facilitates trust, respect, compassion and understanding for your uniqueness. I work in a proactive, collaborative, flexible and transparent way. I am direct and open, offer honest feedback and insightful challenges. I help you search for maladaptive patterns and work with you on trying new approaches. I believe everyone has core strengths that with the right support and guidance will serve as a foundation for more self-confidence, healthier relationships and increased self-fulfillment.

Attachment & relationship concerns are a focus of my work. I'm experienced working with identity questions: sexuality, gender, career, family roles; sexual dysfunction & addiction; have training in trauma/abuse. Special populations: helping professionals: therapists & medical ; creative individuals: musicians & artists. I see individuals, couples, families & groups providing psychotherapy & life-coaching

I combine multiple approaches to meet your specific needs. I believe in mind-body connection & individuals' unique response to stressors. I explore multiple aspects of identity & personal development in my integrative understanding of challenges and desired outcomes. Creative, flexible, individualized treatment plans lead to renewed hope & increased motivation for change .

Lisa K. Willis's Groups

general interpersonal process group

Interpersonal process group that helps people identify patterns of relating that cause them distress or "dysfunction". An opportunity to better understand the impact of attachment history, such as relationships with family on current relationships. The experience of hearing feedback and the working through of conflicts, confusions and difficulty in a safe supportive therapist led group promotes personal growth and increased well- being as well as generally healthier more stable connections with others.

More about this group


Interpersonal process group for therapists

A group for Mental health professionals to learn about themselves and their relational patterns in an interpersonal group with their peers. Group is an ideal way to understand our "blindspots" through feedback and the working through of family/historic dynamics in the here and now. Additionally, negotiating boundaries related to healthy self- care is often an emerging theme for "helping professionals" in this interpersonal process group. This is an opportunity for personal self- growth as well as for professional development through experiential learning about the group process.
