LISA LANN

Depression, Anxiety, Grief, Self Esteem, Relationships, Crisis/Stress Management

Life stresses and challenges often halt the ability to enjoy life and relationships. You are not alone; we have all been there! It is my desire to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment in which my clients can seek help and discover ways to manage life’s conflicts and troubles. My counseling goal is to encourage, equip and empower so that an individual can experience a positive life change that can lead to inner peace and restored relationships. Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord,” plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” It is my desire to lead clients to a positive change that is beneficial for them and acceptable to God. It is my privilege to walk beside you as we discover solutions for healing and seek to restore peaceful and purposeful living.
