Hello, I’m Lisa, a registered social worker holding a master's degree in social work from the University of Windsor. Throughout our collaboration, I will utilize mindfulness-based approaches, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, strengths-based techniques, solution-focused methods, and other various counselling modalities. Operating within a welcoming, accepting, and supportive environment, I aim to assist you in progressing toward your objectives. I have experience in offering support for a range of challenges, including mental health issues, substance use and addictions, problems of self-esteem and confidence, relationship dynamics, establishing boundaries, stress management, anger management, navigating life changes, and coping strategies. Collaboratively, let's embark on a journey to empower you to express and own your narrative, amplify your strengths, and guide you toward balance and personal growth.
