Lisa Cardinal, LPC, NCC

At some point in our lives, we can all feel stuck or overwhelmed, especially in this fast-paced society. Often times, we resist the very things we need to do to become “unstuck” because it takes us outside of our comfort zone. As a result, we often get trapped in a vicious cycle of repeating the familiar and getting the same, frustrating outcome. Achieving positive change does ultimately require us to take an unfamiliar, unknown route. As your therapist, i view my role as being a safe, reliable support system as well as providing you with useful tools to become “unstuck” and to cope with the initial discomfort you may feel when exploring this unfamiliar, unknown route.

In my experience as a therapist, I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse array of clientele with a wide range of presenting issues including but not limited to: depression, anxiety, marital conflict, family conflict, occupational stress, and women’s issues. I believe therapy is a collaborative effort that is about exploring what works for you and not adhering to a one-size-fits-all approach. As such, this exploration may include non-conventional strategies such as the use of art, music, mindfulness, humor and/or movement. Therapy is not a quick fix and requires your active participation. I understand that therapy is both a financial and time commitment but my hope is to make it a commitment you look forward to. I look forward to working with you!
