Personal background

Lisa grew up in the Cleveland area and moved to Arizona for 4 years to obtain her Master of Counseling degree from the University of Phoenix. While she loved living in Arizona, she felt called to return home to be closer to family. Lisa integrates into counseling at your request, her initiation foundation in a Catholic grade school and how she has learned to navigate in the Real World as a teen in a public school. Lisa later obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Kent State University and worked briefly as a private investigator. She discerned her calling in life was to “solve puzzles” in a more compassionate manner with clients as they learn how to disrupt unhealthy life patterns. Following the Lord’s Will to become a therapist remains her most fulfilling career and she welcomes the opportunity to journey with you to find sustainable ways to learn healthier paths for the long term.

In her free time, Lisa is family-oriented and enjoys spending time with her nieces and nephew, friends, and watching movies. To continue her personal and professional growth, you could also see her in the adoration chapel, reading the latest counseling and Inner Healing books or simply trying out new restaurants and walking in the Metroparks when the weather is nice.
