Hi, I am

Lisa!

Hi, I’m Lisa, a Licensed Professional Counselor practicing in both Missouri and Colorado. I help and support adolescents and adults as they work through life’s difficulties, including past and current trauma. I utilize therapeutic modalities aimed at alleviating troubling symptoms, enabling my clients to lead fuller lives. I also specialize in relationship counseling and have extensive experience helping clients with substance use disorders.

We all, at various times in our lives, need an objective, compassionate outsider to sit quietly with us and be fully present to help us process what we are experiencing. I have always experienced it as an honor and a privilege to be that presence for every client I work with. My clients say they value my empathic nature, as well as my age and life experience.

How I Can Help...

My route to becoming a therapist was a circuitous one! I was interested in Social Work when I entered college in 1977, but my love of science led to an undergraduate degree in Zoology and Chemistry by 1982. I was to go to medical school, but pursued Computer Science instead. I had a successful 18-year career as a mainframe programmer/analyst and consultant for various large companies in St. Louis before going back to school to earn a dual Masters and train to be a therapist. I’ve worked in various settings, such as not-for-profit community agencies, schools, and in private practice. I also enjoyed being an adjunct professor at Lindenwood University, teaching graduate students the various theories of psychotherapy, and also helping to develop their counseling skills.

I am a Certified Family Trauma Professional, relying on an eclectic mix of counseling theories and modalities in my work with clients. However, the foundation of my approach is very person-centered and Adlerian. My post-graduate training in Gestalt therapy also informs my practice. I value each individual’s uniqueness and strive to help each person see, appreciate and value his or her strengths, despite set-backs. I am averse to “cookie cutter” approaches to counseling, thus I try to avoid too much emphasis on labels and formulas for helping. I am happy to say that I have had great success with this approach for many years!

When I am Not at Work....

In my spare time, I am a voracious reader! I LOVE books and good magazines - like Harpers and The Sun. I value time alone, but also like to cook and have friends over to share meals and laughter. I love music and dance and have always found playing drums to be a therapeutic hobby. I like everything from Calypso and Reggae (I’m a native of the US Virgin Islands) to classical…I love the St. Louis Symphony! I enjoy stand-up comedy – HUGE Kathleen Madigan fan, lol. Being in nature is important to me, as I much prefer being outdoors, enjoying the sights and sounds of the natural world. Lastly, athletics have always been a big part of my life, so you may find me on a tennis court, shooting pool with my brothers, hiking a trail or climbing a mountain with one of my daughters. Being from the islands, I like the sun and the heat. Oh, and though I do like dogs, I’m a total cat person. I will always have a tomcat strutting around my house and showing me who’s boss!
