Meet Lisa Lipton, LMFT: PACE Recovery Center Therapist

Lisa Lipton, LMFT

Here at PACE Recovery Center we are very proud of our treatment team.  Today we would like to profile Lisa Lipton, LMFT.

Lisa Lipton is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with over twelve years of counseling experience helping teenagers, young adults and their families.

Lisa’s undergraduate degree was obtained at California State University Northridge, receiving a B.A. in Psychology. Lisa attended Phillips Graduate Institute in Encino, California, where she graduated with an M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy.

Working for an outpatient non-profit organization for six years provided Lisa with the opportunity to work with a dual diagnosis population, addressing both substance abuse issues and mental health disorders.

Lisa’s experience working at a Therapeutic Boarding School for children and youth ages 10-16 for three years, as a Treatment Coordinator and Therapist, has given her residential placement and milieu knowledge. Co-facilitating Parent Seminars and Family Workshops, to help families have a better understanding of the challenges their children face, were an integral part of the healing and recovery process.

In addition to writing numerous articles, Lisa is presently a part-time adjunct professor at Woodbury University, teaching a course on Marriage & Intimacy.

Being married and the proud mom of a five year old son brings a personal perspective to her work. One of Lisa’s favorite past-time is to hike the beautiful trails of California with her two little Pomeranian dogs Hercules and Samson.

Positive attitude changes everything…
