I am so grateful for the time I spent with Lisa. Lisa has a gentle, compassionate approach, and I immediately felt comfortable with her. I really valued the exercises she gave me to practice between our sessions. It allowed me to focus on my goals and what I was trying to achieve in therapy on a consistent basis, not just once a week in our sessions. I will take the tools I learned from working with Lisa with me for a long time, and I am still noticing ways in which therapy has positively benefited many different aspects in my life, far beyond what I originally came in for.

If the need for therapy ever arose for me again, I would not hesitate to contact Lisa.

Lisa Nave has warmth, compassion and patience along with invaluable strength to view all sides of a couple’s issues. Her therapeutic knowledge was enlightening and brought value to every session.  I would recommend her to couples that want to improve communication.

With utmost honesty, we can say that Lisa was our guiding star in the darkest of nights.  After a series of major life changes we found ourselves disconnected, resentful, lonely, and emotionally guarded…and on Lisa’s couch.  She is the most insightful, intelligible, transparent, and dedicated counselor we could have ever hoped to work with.  With her help, we were able to navigate our way back into each other’s arms with new found skills for communication and connection on every level.  It is without hesitation that we recommend Lisa for your counseling needs.  She helped us recover our buried connection, restore our relationship, and lay the foundation for an amazing life together!  Thank you Lisa!  We appreciate you!

My life’s circumstances changed greatly within a short period of time–I got married, bought a house, and had a baby within six months.  While I knew these transitions would be challenging (and wonderful), I felt lost and unable to communicate my true feelings to the people I love most.  Lisa helped me recognize my feelings in the moment and gave me the tools I needed to feel like my authentic self again.  She encouraged me to explore the source of conflict inside myself.  Lisa is just what I needed in a therapist–her communication style, intelligence, compassion, and genuine affect helped me through a time when I truly needed guidance.

I worked with Lisa for about a year, during which time my personal process “exploded”.

Lisa helped me to contain and embody the changes I was going through, and empowered me to become and express more and more of my Self.

Lisa’s sensitivity and wisdom helped me gain tremendous insight and integration. Her remarkable listening skills made me feel welcome, accepted and held no matter how embarrassing, frightening or ugly the issue.

Her reflections and comments made me feel understood. It seemed she always understood where I was coming from, and could also widen my view, and give me a wider perspective on my life.

I truly recommend her.
