“After only a few sessions with Lisa we started to see a smile, hope and improvement. We knew immediately we had made a great decision. Not only was it convenient that Lisa came to our home, a place of safety and comfort. But ultimately we loved the fact that we were all involved in the process. We were not just sending our daughter off to counseling; instead we were all together communicating better, listening better and understanding better. Lisa helped us all make changes that would only better our family!”

“I contacted Lisa Smith and we began the process of figuring out the best way to help my son. Very quickly I started seeing results! One of the best parts is that Lisa will come to you and work with your family in your own home where everyone feels the most comfortable. I can’t recommend Lisa highly enough she really helped us with a difficult and challenging time in our lives.”

“I cannot say enough in praise of Lisa’s approach. She immediately picked up on our family dynamic. She has helped us with communicating difficult emotions and subjects, She then has challenged and held accountable each family member. She helps to change unproductive/harmful entrenched thinking, attitudes and behaviors in favor of positive actions which are each small steps toward necessary change. She is candid, insightful, encouraging and very caring. Lisa sincerely wants to help her clients get to a better place in their lives and relationships.”
