Lisa Butler is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Chicago, IL who specializes in self-esteem, mindfulness, and trauma. The focus of her practice is her work within the African-American community, especially girls, teenagers, and adult women.
Lisa’s approach is rooted in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, through which she helps clients learn to unpleasant thoughts, emotions, or experiences without viewing them as problems. She also encourages a values-driven lens to treatment, which allows clients to develop a deeper awareness of how their daily actions align with their values.
Lisa aims to help her clients develop a firm sense of self-compassion, in order to navigate any stressors, guilt, or shame that can arise in their daily lives. She looks forward to meeting you.
