Lisa Todd, LMFT
About Lisa Todd
My personal style is down to earth, honest, creative and compassionate. I value authenticity in our work together and offer an appreciation for your spirituality. Therapy with me is a relaxed, safe environment where you can address your concerns and struggles. We work collaboratively in a meaning centered way in order to help you explore the obstacles that keep you from feeling more engaged, connected, curious and content. You will gain a stronger connection to yourself, a greater sense of aliveness and wellbeing, increased creativity and discover what it means to live authentically.
Whether you are struggling with anxiety or depression, are dissatisfied with your relationships, feeling groundless due to life transitions such as divorce or re-location, grief and loss or are just sick and tired of feeling less than, I will assist you in making the desired changes. My work has been in a variety of settings with a diverse population and I have enjoyed a thriving private practice. I have an extensive background in substance abuse and supporting parents of teens and young adults with problematic substance use.
While I use a range of theoretical approaches depending on the presentation and needs of the client, my primary approach is humanistic and contemplative with emphasis on immediate experience. What beliefs are keeping you stuck? What narratives are limiting you? Is resistance playing a part in your experience? We get curious about the self as opposed to judgmental and work toward bringing you closer to your own natural wisdom.
