Couch Conversations© are small groups involving you and your support system. Couch Conversations™ include education and support from the facilitator and those your invite to participate. Couch Conversations™ last 60-90 minutes and will be held in your home or at a location you desire. No more than eight and no less than four participants will be allowed per Couch Conversations™. Mileage will be charged for travel out of the Lincoln city limits. I look forward to facilitating these conversations outside Lincoln and beyond Nebraska. As such, I am willing to work with small groups regarding the complete cost for travel. Insurance not accepted.

Individual Counseling
Individual consultation is offered on a short term basis. The one hour meeting includes; discussion about enhancing capacity for personal and social functioning, assisting with personal adjustment to crisis and transition, and education about creating and sustaining personal change. Insurance not accepted.

Please contact Lisa to arrange a speaking engagement, "Couch Conversations"™, individual counseling, and/or a workshop for your large or small group.
