Hello, my name is Lisa, and I am a registered social worker with a bachelor’s degree in social work from Trent University. I am currently completing my student practicum as I work towards completing a master's degree in social work. In our work together, I will draw from mindfulness-based strategies, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), motivational interviewing, strengths-based, solution-focused, and various other counselling modalities and techniques in a welcoming, accepting, and supportive environment to help you advance towards your goals.
