I work from the idea that all of our life experiences are opportunities to discover ourselves. The road to peace, health, healing, purpose, meaning, and happiness is learning how to allow and be more of YOU, and less of who you think you should/ need to be. You and I will process your story, get to know your patterns, see what is getting in the way, and ultimately help you feel empowered and inspired.

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.

People often think psychotherapy is only for crises. However research shows that therapy is one of the best investments you can make for life satisfaction and growth. In addition to therapy are other modalities that support healing and growth. Some of these holistic wellness tools include exercise, mindfulness, tai chi and yoga. I have a rich background in the application of mindfulness to promote healing and growth, and have experience integrating tools such as Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, DBT, CBT, Hypnosis and EMDR. I also find authenticity and humor essential for healing and use both liberally.

Given all the insanity of the world, you know that you're needed NOW more than ever. Your work is to help your clients reclaim their center but you get kicked by the chaos in the world. Yeah, you're human, yet you question how you can help when you're anxious and fearful. When you don't know your own future. When you take in the suffering of the people of the planet. And so you do what you've always done: give of yourself, but not TO yourself. And then you grow depleted and despondent, questioning who you are, questioning your purpose.

Having provided client centered therapy for over 30 years, I have learned that no one is immune to life's difficulties, robbing some of peace and contentment in daily existence. These years have taught me the importance to work together while providing the tools needed to create a more healthy life...no matter what our environment or our pasts have dealt us. I believe that although depression and anxiety can sometimes color our lives, ,that ultimately, we have dominion over our existence. Reaching out for help is a road sometimes not taken by the faint of heart, but much less challenging with a seasoned and supportive therapist

My caseload is currently full - I will update when I am accepting new clients again - Thank You! I often describe therapy as learning to learn about yourself. Many times the biggest challenge is becoming truly aware of our own experiences, and then being honest with ourselves about these experiences. This can be scary! And exciting! Once we begin to be honest with ourselves, we can examine patterns, heal old wounds, learn new skills, and begin to shift our ways of interacting - with ourselves, each other, and the world!

When we've experienced unhealthy relationship dynamics or trauma, it can be hard to know how to trust ourselves and others. This can lead to low self-worth, codependency, repeating unwanted patterns, depression, or relational issues. Safely exploring what is at the core of these issues will allow you to live a more authentic and connected life. I work primarily with women who want to uncover their core beliefs and subconscious patterns in order to consciously create the life they desire. Unburden yourself by learning how to compassionately accept your story, process your emotions, and become the safe, loving place you yearn for.

It is common to see therapy as a journey to discover the Self. We have familiar maps, or patterns, which can lead to unhappiness or self-sabotaging behavior. You may find yourself stranded in all-too-familiar territory with little idea of how to move on. Like many journeys, it can be an exciting adventure but can also be full of unknowns. I see my role as your guide, to blaze new “routes” together that have worked well for others. As Helen Keller once said: “What I am looking for is not out there, it is in me.” I truly believe the exquisite joy you find by falling in love with yourself is a journey you don’t want to miss!

Most people who identify a need for therapy seem to be dealing with natural defense systems that help manage shock and developmental trauma including attachment wounds. A defense response may be anxiety, depression, dissociation, psychosis, avoidant attachment, etc. A part of therapy is simply developing understanding and acceptance of defense mechanisms, then there is more capacity to reclaim or recover self regulation, co-regulation and self concept. I am interested in working with all people who have experienced trauma and as well as getting to the causal factors, developing grounding in the present and hope about the future.

A common misconception of counseling is that it is meant to "fix" an individual. More accurately, it is a catalyst for emotional stability, successful relationships, and satisfaction in life. Counseling is meant to build upon one's existing strengths resulting in the ability to manage stress in a healthier way. Often one's innate resiliency is overlooked and problems are approached with the assumption of a deficiency or "illness." A more positive, strength based, approach leads to a more intentional life with a grounded presence.
