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...
