Lisa has extensive experience working with trauma survivors, and has received specialty training in evidence based treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety disorders, and insomnia. She has almost 20 years of experience working with trauma survivors from a background in victim advocacy, and for the last 8 years as a psychologist.  During those 8 years, she has worked in a PTSD specialty clinic at the DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center as well as in private practice.  She has received training in Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for insomnia (CBT-i).
