Lisa’s passion is helping women (and their relationships) break through strongholds and navigate through life’s challenges. Lisa has worked with women and families involved in foster care and adoption, and those families who come together through remarriage. As a step-parent herself who with her husband, raised three children, she has a special place in her heart for blended families. Lisa has a keen sensitivity toward those who are suffering with grief and loss brought on by the death of a loved one, divorce, post-abortion trauma, or illness.

She was part of a team of clinicians who provided counseling to widows and families in a New Jersey community who lost loved ones during the September 11th terrorist attack - one of the most traumatic periods this country has ever experienced. Lisa’s therapeutic approach is highly interactive and practical. She is an active listener and provides compassionate care, support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address their unique challenges.
