Lisa works collaboratively with the clinical team on the development and implementation of Wellbridge’s Family Program. The program goal is to engage and offer supportive services to every loved one who has experienced the ripple effects of addiction. Family involvement is viewed as a fundamental part of the treatment process to ensure support, systemic change, and a community of healing.
Lisa has a passion for helping the entire family system when there is a person struggling with addiction, as every loved one is affected in some way. Her experience spans at-risk youth, substance use, and families. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, she’s worked with families in various mental health settings. Prior to joining Wellbridge, Lisa was the Family Program Director of an Intensive Outpatient Program for adolescents and young adults. She also worked as a Coordinator of an Adolescent Outpatient Substance Abuse Program and a Supervisor for a PINS (Person In Need of Supervision) Diversion program.
