Greetings! My name is Lisa.
I am a Licensed Master of Social Work (LMSW) with over 10 years experience. I earned my BA in 1992, however found my passion in 2011, when I began working with teenage youth with mental health challenges residing in a group home setting, who were working toward reunification with their families. In working with both teens and families, I found my niche within the helping profession. I then went back to college and earned my Masters of Social Work from the University of New England. I have been in a variety of clinical settings and populations including Youth and Families, In-Patient Hospice Facility, Substance Use Disorders within an In-Patient Facility, Domestic Violence Survivors, Trauma Survivors, and Clients suffering with Anxiety and/or Depression.
My approach incorporates Person-Centered Care through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT, Motivational Interviewing and/or Trauma Informed Care. I will utilize techniques from other practice modalities depending on your specific needs.
