Get to Know Lisa (she/her)

I help individuals with disordered eating, weight and body-image concerns, pre-and-post bariatric surgery adjustment, mood and anxiety difficulties, trauma, self-confidence, life transition issues, and relationship challenges. I am passionate about helping individuals access and cultivate their innate strengths and wisdom to overcome personal, emotional, and life challenges. I also strive to understand individuals presenting concerns from a socio-cultural lens, and to advocate for and empower clients to make internal and external changes that align with their values. In addition, my extensive training complements the mission of Eating and Behavioral Health Associates to provide excellent, evidenced-based treatment to those who are struggling with a range of psychological concerns.

Some of my clinical interest areas include disordered eating, weight and body-image concerns, pre-and-post bariatric surgery adjustment, PTSD, mood and anxiety difficulties, college student mental health, life transitions, relationship challenges, and the intersection between stress and physical health issues. In conjunction with humanistic and relational-cultural theories serving as a foundation to my work, I draw from a number of evidenced-based interventions depending on a person’s needs and presenting life struggles. These include CBT, DBT, ACT, and compassion-focused therapies. Beyond work, I enjoy traveling, trying various outdoor pursuits, exploring new foods and music, and spending time with family and friends.

Originally an Ohio native, I lived in Chicago for several years where I obtained my doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. During graduate school, I completed specialized training at The University of Chicago Medical Center’s Adult Eating Disorders Program in the use of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for bulimia and binge-eating disorder and contributed to research in this treatment area. I completed my APA-accredited doctoral internship at Illinois State University’s Student Counseling Services and post-doctoral training at Ohio Wesleyan University Student Counseling Services. Both of these experiences allowed me to continue to work with young adults who struggled with a variety of eating concerns, as well as other challenges typically seen in this population. In addition to my doctorate, I hold a Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from The University of Cincinnati and completed my undergraduate training in psychology at The University of Dayton.

I have experience working with individuals ranging from age 16 to 65+. My background also includes conducting psychotherapy groups for range of eating disorder concerns, pre-bariatric surgery psychological evaluations, as well as providing therapeutic treatment/support pre and post bariatric surgery. I am also trained in the use of Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) for the treatment of PTSD. Additionally, I have a special interest in the therapeutic utility of experiential learning and completed my dissertation research evaluating an urban adventure therapy program for youth and young adults.
