Lisa Eaton, Psychotherapist
Lisa believes that it takes a lot of courage to meet with a therapist, and she is sensitive to the journey that led people to her office. Lisa utilizes a friendly, collaborative approach in developing relationships with her clients. She feels that one of the most important change agents in the treatment process is the relationship developed between client and therapist. Lisa strives to help her clients feel comfortable and safe, and works to help her clients build skills to help them manage stressors and overcome obstacles. She uses a strengths-based approach, along with evidenced-based therapy techniques, to help her clients move from where they are to where they would like to be.
Lisa has experience treating young children, adolescents, families, and those with substance abuse issues, utilizing a variety of treatment approaches, depending on the needs of her clients. Her areas of specialty include: anxiety, depression, ADHD, and bipolar disorder; adolescent and adult substance abuse issues; parent training and child behavior issues; family conflict and divorce; treating childhood trauma, including PTSD; and working with clients on issues related to self-esteem, healthy relationships, identity development, and goal-setting.
Some of Lisa’s specialized treatment approaches include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, ACT, Family Systems Theory, Motivational Interviewing, and many different Play Therapy approaches, including Trauma-Focused Integrated Play Therapy.
I work with clients ages 2 through adulthood, and their families.
