Professional Connections

Lisa is a solid, down to earth, highly competent clinician. I have collaborated and consulted with her on many cases we have shared and even many we haven’t. I trust her judgement and value her input. I recommend her often to my clients for various issues.

Dr. Lisa Saponaro has been a mentor to me for the past 5 years. She is highly skilled and experienced in working with children, teenagers, and adults presenting with a wide variety of issues. I have personally gained a wealth of information from her expertise in treating child behavior and emotional problems, family issues, parenting, and ADHD. I highly recommend Dr. Lisa Saponaro!
