About

My style? I listen. And I listen some more. And then the magic begins where I may see something and then tell the client to "put it in the pot and stir it". The client can then take what I say and use it in a way that seems the most relevant for the moment. "What do you think I should do, Lisa?" is a question often asked in therapy sessions. My answer? I won't tell you what to do, but rather, I'll help you to be the best version of you that you can possibly be.
Since I became licensed in 1996, I have learned that my clients are the best judge of my style. They often say, "I like your approach. You really listen and respect me." From there the sessions build upon themselves. I often say that we aren't going to hit the gas pedal running at 60 mph but rather go as fast as the client's mind and body allow.
I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible. To learn more about my availability, please reach out to our Client Experience team by emailing or calling.
