Lisa Schmude, MS, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Torrance
Do you want more out of your life and relationships, yet unsure of how to make that happen? Are you able to imagine the life you want but feelings of self-doubt, unworthiness and fear seem to always get in your way? You're not alone. Sometimes all we need is someone to listen and a safe place to talk. Therapy can be effective by helping you begin to uncover your unique strengths in order to live the life and have the relationships you want.
I enjoy working with individuals, helping them identify and overcome obstacles, improve communication skills and self-esteem. My training with survivors of domestic abuse has shown me that people can thrive after difficult situations. We have the ability to live our best lives; sometimes we just need help getting there.
