People often come to see her during life transitions, or when they are facing interpersonal or family challenges hoping to form new and healthier patterns. They often describe feeling stuck, overwhelmed, unmotivated, anxious, or depressed and revert to unsuccessful habits.

Lirone has postgraduate training working with couples, families, young adults, and women's issues. She believes trust and comfort are crucial for successful therapy and offers a warm, compassionate, nonjudgmental environment. Her work with you will be interactive, supportive, and goal-oriented. In session, Lirone believes every individual, family and couple is unique and caters the type of treatment to the needs of her clients. She utilizes modern treatment approaches such as DBT, CBT and Trauma exposure therapy. Lirone also utilizes psychodynamic, interpersonal, insight oriented and supportive psychotherapy.
