Lisa Pierce has been providing psychotherapy to adults, adolescents, couples and families in her private practice for 15 years. Using an individualized approach to the unique needs of each client, Lisa’s framework for treatment is the RITTM approach. She incorporates multiple modalities in her work, such as psychodynamic and gestalt therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, as well as mindfulness-based, and somatic therapy. She believes it is essential to create a safe, non-judgmental, empathic environment for her clients.
At Reconnect, Lisa provides treatment for all types of trauma, including sexual assault, loss of a loved one, natural disasters, and childhood relational trauma, to name a few. Within the trauma treatment work, areas of focus include depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, relationship issues, and sleep disorders.
Lisa’s goals include helping her clients to regulate their nervous system, educate them about how trauma affects their mind and body, as well as helping them to identify and access suppressed feelings in their body in order to heal the trauma. Lisa’s clients appreciate her genuine commitment and heartfelt care and compassion for their wellbeing, and her goal is to support them in making a positive, transformative change in their lives.
