Hi there, I'm Lisa!

Dr. Lisa Karla, EdD, LPC. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I specialize in Christian counseling for those struggling with marriage, substance and alcohol abuse, spirituality and general mental health.

My approach

My approach to psychotherapy is grounded in a Biblical worldview. Much of my work is done through a psychodynamic model in which the client is engaged on a path of learning the whys, hows, wheres and whens related to where they find themselves as they present to therapy.

My focus

Many of my clients struggle with marital discord; stress and anxiety; depression and grief. I also see clients for career planning and education advisement. One of my favorite clients is seniors!

My communication style

Clients are listened to with a non-judgmental ear. They are encouraged to clearly define their goals and prepare to do the work to obtain success in those goals. Clients are supported and provided with opportunities to grow, gain insight, and become educated as they navigate their therapeutic journey.

My journey to mental healthcare

Working in the financial industry with a coworker began my journey to becoming a therapist. Though friends and family encouraged me to enter the behavioral health field, it wasn't until a coworker faced a personal crisis that she was not able to process. She was ready to make a permanent decision for a temporary dilemma. She shared her situation and I asked her various questions allowing her to I guess, gain insight. The next day she returned to work and stated, "You saved my [25-yr] marriage. You're in the wrong business. You should be a therapist." I was really shocked because she did not know that many had said this for years. I didn't know very well outside of work. I then began to pursue the path to becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor. The most thrilling aspect of this work, that gets me excited AND willing to continue is when people gain insight into themselves and their issues. That's the exciting part. More than listening to me; or me listening to them...is when that proverbial light bulb goes off and they "get it!"

My goals for you

S.M.A.R.T. goal setting is a key component of therapy. Clients are encouraged to set goals that are achievable and realistic for their lives. Clients learn to accept truths about what is within their control and what isn't, then become empowered to make changes that are necessary to get the results they want.

My first session with you

Clients should anticipate a warm welcome and an initial feeling of hope that encourages them to want to engage in a second session!
