Divorce is a very stressful time for clients and Lisa’s philosophy is to make the process as simple and easy as possible. “Kitchen table counseling” is a term she uses to describe her practice; which means she will meet her clients in their home and work with them on their day to day financial issues. It is not uncommon for Lisa to help a client hire other professionals in their lives such as a CPA, estate planning attorney, real estate agent or a mortgage professional and will even help clients navigate the car buying experience.
She is truly an advocate for her clients.

There are myriad reasons that a couple might seek Marriage/Couples counseling. Some couples may be doing “marital maintenance” by giving their relationship a ‘tune-up’, like we take care of our cars.
- Some couples might be addressing patterns that keep emerging. For them it may feel like they continue to have the same fight over and over again, just the details are different.
- Other couples have a big hurt or a breach of trust like an infidelity and want help to repair this hurt and move forward.
- For others, parenting styles have become an impediment in their marital or couple relationship.
- And some struggle to find a way of relating to extended family that feels okay to both partners.
With the support of Marriage/Couples counseling, many couples find healing and repair with issues such as these.
