Acuity Counseling Therapist Bio
Lisa Dean, MS, LMFT, RPT
Child, Teen and Adult Therapist
Lisa enjoys working with children, teens, young adults and their families. She collaborates with you to identify the specific goals and unique strengths to plan the best treatment for you while utilizing techniques of traditional therapies and play therapy. Lisa brings a welcoming presence and unconditional positive attitude to each relationship.
Counseling with Children and Teens
Is your child struggling with anxiety or depression? Do they seem moody or down? Maybe they are having difficulty adjusting to the challenges of life at school or at home? For some youth it is as easy as learning a few skills to identify their emotions or challenge their thoughts. For others, they need someone who cares and seeks to understand their unique experiences. Lisa would like to support you and your child (ages 5+) as they learn and grow into the people they were meant to be.
Counseling with Individuals
Is it difficult for you to find motivation? Are you struggling to make changes in your life? Are there circumstances in your life that feel out of your control? Often these life experiences lead to feelings of anxiety or depression. Lisa will work with you to identify the stumbling blocks in your way, learn new skills and tools to overcome these obstacles and see improvement in your mood, symptoms and daily life. By considering you as a whole person, she will take into account the different facets of your life and how they are impacting you and the goals you want to achieve.
