I am eclectic, psychodynamic , humanistic, behavioral, mindful, whatever works.
www.lissafriedman.com - I like to help people find the deep knot of their pattern, gently lovingly untie it, and bring healing to the wound. I have been a therapist for about 30 years, and in private Practice since 1987. While my style is eclectic, it is my warmth, compassion, and acceptance that underlie all of my work. I try to provide an environment, much like a container, for my clients to open to their own natural self compassion and acceptance. Seeing each person as whole, rather than deficient provides an environment for people to come to a natural place of healing.

Welcome! Counseling offers a safe, nonjudgmental, space for exploring the psyche, finding meaning in challenging life events, and experiencing a sense of hope. The counseling process can be creative and exciting, and at times, it can be difficult. I seek to be open, supportive, curious, and responsive to my clients as they navigate their journey. I lean toward a psychodynamic psychotherapy model, exploring how our attachment styles, family stories, coping mechanisms, and unconscious layers of thoughts and feelings influence our present day life.

Grounded in a deeply humanistic and psychodynamic framework- I work with individuals as they detangle themselves from the scars of their past and the unhelpful narratives that result.
There is no need to struggle alone, but yet we often do. Our suffering may appear in many different forms, from depression and anxiety, to relationship issues, substance use and more. It’s time to shed this idea that “we have to have it all together” and allow ourselves be human for a moment. In this honest space, my clients tend to become more in touch with their authentic selves and establish beliefs, values, narratives and take steps towards a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

As a seasoned therapist with over 30 years of clinical experience, my work is grounded in psychodynamic theory, and incorporates cognitive-behavioral techniques, positive psychology, mindfulness training, and family systems.
My therapy approach is warm, compassionate, and collaborative. In an open and caring environment, an individual's ability to change self-defeating patterns of thoughts and behaviors, increase self-esteem, recognize strengths, and develop healthy relationships is enhanced.

Are you feeling alone, anxious or depressed? Unsatisfied with your career, have chronic pain or illness? Relationship stress, extended family issues? My clients tell me I'm warm, easy to talk to, and down to earth. I use a variety of treatment approaches: psychodynamic and relational, combined with CBT, EFT, and EMDR. EMDR can help almost any problem resolve more quickly because it allows the brain to make changes on a deeper level than just talking. We still talk plenty though, before, during and after EMDR. My clients find telehealth to be helpful and convenient. I see regular clients occasionally at my home office.

You may have gotten help before but found that it didn't last, or merely removed the symptoms. I will help you get relief by working to resolve your problem at its root cause.

I work with clients to help them approach their strong emotions, negative thoughts, and trust issues pulling from attachment based and psychodynamic theories.
Sometimes, the survival mechanisms and belief systems that help us survive our childhoods do not serve us well later in life. A therapeutic relationship that is both safe and challenging helps us heal those early wounds, reclaim the spirit that we were born with, and return us to our authentic selves. My mission as a therapist is to help my clients recognize their self-worth, and become the whole people they were meant to be.

I am not able to accept new clients at this time. I have over 35 years of experience as a mental health clinician. I am trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy - which means that I believe that who we are as adults is shaped by the past relationships we had in our families. The difficulties we have in our work, relationships and within ourselves, can be managed better and overcome, when we have greater understanding of how these earlier experiences have shaped us. Change happens as this understanding opens up new possibilities for what we want for ourselves, and how we experience ourselves and others.

I am trained in several models, including: Psychodynamic ; Cognitive- Behavioral; Solution-Focused; Family Systems; EMDR; and Mindfulness.
Life's crises and challenges can be difficult and often painful. They also offer us a chance to re-focus our attention and move forward in a healthy direction. From this vantage point, life's problems can be a pathway to self-growth. Therapy can be a helpful tool, as you seek healing and positive changes in your life. I work with individuals, couples, and families from ages 16 and up, who are facing difficult life transitions, depression and anxiety, grief and loss, relationship problems, and recovery from traumatic events.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
