Certified Clinical Trauma Professional

Parent coaching

I’m Dr. Lisa, and I help clients heal from difficult experiences. I have a passion for helping those who feel stuck. The effects of trauma, depression, and anxiety deeply impact our self-esteem and relationships with others. This can leave you feeling lost in life.

Working with me means searching for your authentic self and rebuilding your self-esteem. Sessions with me include breaking cycles of dysfunction and creating healthier patterns. On this journey of self-reflection, you will learn coping skills, discover your strengths, and realize your potential.

I have a BA in Psychology, BA in Sociology, and MA in Psychological Services from Kean University. I completed my Ph.D. in Psychology from Walden University. Most recently, I received my Marriage and Family Therapy Professional Diploma from Kean University. My additional experience includes working with:

  • Domestic violence
  • Sexual abuse
  • Traumatic social experiences
  • Body image
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

I offer a judgment-free, safe space to share your concerns and thoughts. My sessions include: 

  • Improved understanding of trauma and mental health
  • Development of coping skills
  • Reflections on your relationships
  • Focus on solutions and goals

Outside of the office, I enjoy exercising, spending time outdoors, making arts and crafts projects, spending time with friends and family, reading great books, and writing.  

I offer telehealth and in-person sessions to clients in New Jersey. I am here to help you to live your best life and be the most fulfilled version of yourself. If you’re ready to find your voice, let’s get started.
