As a psychotherapist for the past 30+ years, I feel passionate about helping people experience more joy and contentment in their relationships and in their lives. I believe that every crisis or problem that arises also provides an opportunity for healing and growth. Whether you are depressed, anxious, having marital conflicts, parenting difficulties, recovering from a traumatic experience, or in the midst of a life transition, we can problem-solve together and discover new possibilities for you. My style can best be described as interactive and engaging. I am a supportive listener, yet give honest feedback and offer suggestions for positive actions.
Clients express a sense of comfort and ease about sharing their personal thoughts and feelings with me. My great capacity to be compassionate helps people explore their lives from a nonjudgmental perspective. This can lead to greater understanding and the freedom to choose more satisfying ways of living and relating to others.
In addition, I have also developed a specialty helping divorcing and/or separating couples find an amicable way of resolving their differences. I work collaboratively as a divorce coach alongside attorneys to create a more positive outcome for the entire family.

Lisa Makstein's Groups

Mother Voyage: Personal Growth Group for Moms

The Mother Voyage Group offers mothers a unique chance to talk with other mothers about their experience as a mom, to gain a moment for self-reflection, and to receive support and feedback about their journey as moms. It has been described as a haven amidst the chaos of the daily grind and a place to feel nurtured to replenish one's exhausted coffers. It is also a place where women can learn how our children are our greatest teachers and discover the magic of mothering!

More about this group

Adult Interpersonal Group:Working on Relationships

This group is for men and women interested in working on the relationships in their lives. Through telling our stories, we create opportunities to bring more of ourselves present. Participants have the chance to visit or re-visit parts of themselves and their lives that create limitations or barriers in relationships. The resultant increase in self-awareness and clarity about what we receive or what we give up through our choices can lead to healthier relationships.
