From a collaborative and relational approach, I will work with you to accomplish your goals. I will help you uncover your own healing resources and strengths through the meaningful connection of the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical. With guidance & healing, you will experience resolution. And from there, wonderful things can happen……

Love after Love
~ Derek Walcott, 1992 Nobel prize winner for literature.
The time will come, when
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door,
in your own mirror.
And each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, “Sit here. Eat. Relax.”
You will love again this stranger who is your Self.
Give wine. Give bread.
Give back your heart,
to this stranger who has loved you
all your life,
whom you ignored for another,
but who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the book shelf,
the photographs and the desperate notes.
Peel you self-image from the mirror.
Sit. Here. Now. Feast on your life.
Fall in love again with your Self and with all of Life.
It is very easy for me to talk to Lisha because I know that no matter what I say, she will not judge me. Instead, she provides valuable feedback that allows me to view certain situations from a completely different perspective.

Your help last year was invaluable. To say I appreciate what we were able to accomplish is the biggest understatement of my life. Your services came at exactly the right time in my life for numerous reasons and I just can't say enough good things about your help. I feel like I'm on the right track with my life for the first time in a long, long while, and I don't think it would be possible without the therapy I received from you. Thank you.

Before EMDR therapy, I repeatedly pushed people away in fear that they would abandon me. EMDR therapy helped me to gain a sense of power back and realize I wasn't being abandoned at all. It was very healing to release that false belief. This has strengthened my trust in the friendships I have now.

EMDR brought me back to a marriage that ended in divorce 25 years ago. I realized I was allowing myself to be disrespected in my current relationship because I had given my emotional power away during my marriage. I no longer allow myself to be disrespected and am now in a healthy relationship. EMDR allowed me to return to my true self and be happier than I've been in years.
