Licensed Professional Counselor
My Approach to Helping
Life can be beautiful. It can also be painful, confusing, overwhelming, and painful. Sara believes that counseling helps us to explore our thoughts and feelings with someone else – to understand ourselves better and grow in the process. This growth can promote self-compassion, self-acceptance, and self-love. Some of Sara’s experience centers on working with those who are experiencing depression, anxiety, loss, body-related issues, low self-image, and issues surrounding sex.
“Whatever you are experiencing or wherever you are in life – I offer empathy and a safe space to be yourself while we work together towards healing.”
Modes and types of mental health care are as varied as the individuals who seek therapeutic support. While there are some therapeutic models that are more popular than others, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to mental health care. Nuances in the types and modes of therapy will support different people in different ways.
Depending on the situation in which an individual or group of individuals are seeking therapeutic support, there are several different modes of therapy that Lisa utilizes.
- Family Therapy
- Marriage & Couples Counseling
- Relationship Counseling

Psychotherapy, also referred to as talk therapy, psycho-social therapy, counseling, or, simply, therapy, is the primary method for treating mental health problems by talking with a mental health provider. The goal is the help an individual better understand their mental health and teach strategies and tools that manage unhealthy thoughts and behaviors.
While there are many approaches to psychotherapy, there is no single approach that works for everyone. A therapist may use a blended approach, sampling techniques from several different types of psychotherapy. The kind of psychotherapy a person receives depends on his or her own unique needs.
Below are some of the types of psychotherapy Lisa utilizes.
- Adreian Therapy
- Art Therapy
- Existential Therapy
- Person-Centered Therapy
