Professional statement

Dr. Kristen Lisson is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist located in Los Angeles, CA. Dr. Lisson specializes in helping those who struggle with perfectionism, social anxiety, or the need to control situations in finding the right skills to thrive in their daily lives. Many of her clients feel the effects of fear or past traumas, which cause feelings of being “stuck” in relationships, emotions, or situations.

Dedicated to providing evidence-based therapy, Dr. Lisson has extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), two therapy modalities that examine unhealthy or harmful thought patterns. Dr. Lisson also helps clients find a heightened sense of awareness and relaxation through mindfulness practices. By increasing a client’s skills in regulating emotions and meeting their mental health goals, Dr. Lisson supports clients as they find a healthier, happier way to live.

Dr. Lisson earned her PsyD from Azusa Pacific University. She has additional training from CBT California, UCLA Semel Institute, Harbor-UCLA, and Loma Linda University. Her style is collaborative and warm, creating a comfortable atmosphere for clients to learn more about themselves and move forward in their lives.


Message to clients

Sometimes we may find ourselves struggling through a particularly difficult life experience in which we just can’t seem to find our footing. Moments like this can leave us anxious, depressed, feeling inadequate, or worried that life is spiraling out of control.

When it seems our inner resources are completely tapped out, therapy can be a lifeline.

In my private practice, I work with adults who want to build self-confidence, improve relationship or family issues, manage emotions that seem out of control, or overcome social anxiety. My approach to individual therapy is founded on evidence-based treatment methods within the context of a genuinely warm and caring therapeutic relationship. It’s a collaborative process that is highly customized to your goals and needs.

I know from personal experience that it can take immense courage to seek help, and I appreciate your trust in reaching out to me. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
