Lisa has a passion for working with students, adolescents, adults, couples and families who are seeking change from challenges in their lives. From anxiety and depression, to coping with life changes, grief, trauma, suicide, crisis, or low self-esteem, she believes that every person can experience improvement in their situation. She applies hope to her approach with each person’s story; and believes that there is hope in what may seem like a hopeless situation.
Some of us need a safe place to process what life hands us, others want to work on specific changes in their life, and some want to prepare for upcoming transitions (e.g. marriage, new child, moving away from home, etc). Lisa supports individuals, couples, or families in each of these goal areas, and more.
Lisa has compassion for those feeling stuck because of anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, or unclear future direction. She also believes that some of her work, such as premarital counselling, can be preventative so that we can take steps to build resilience. Working with students has prepared her to journey with people who desire balance and peace amid life transitions.
Lisa received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Queen’s University before earning her Master of Divinity in Clinical Counselling from Tyndale University College and Seminary.
