Lisa Lainer is a Clinical Psychologist in Los Angeles. Lisa works with a wide range of clients including teens, young adults, couples and adults throughout the lifespan. Many of her clients seek support as they navigate life transitions, relationship difficulties or crises which challenge their personal values. She has a particular expertise working with individuals and couples who are looking for support in their parenting, whether they are struggling to adjust to new parenthood, dealing with the many developmental transition times or have children or teens who need more intensive levels of care. She also enjoys working with individuals who are dealing with both chronic and new medical diagnoses, helping them navigate through the complex and often scary medical world.
Lisa works eclectically using cognitive behavioral therapeutic techniques along with looking at early family of origin issues. Lisa's style is non-judgemental, warm and engaging. She works to establish a strong relationship where clients feel safe to express the difficult issues they are needing support with. Together they will explore what has brought the client to therapy and discuss the clients goals for treatment. Clients report feeling more relaxed and present and more confident both in their decisions, and to feel empowered to help themselves meet their social and emotional needs.
Lisa received her Ph.D. from California School of Professional Psychology. Lisa completed a two year post doctoral fellowship at Reiss-Davis Child Study Center where she had the opportunity to learn from well respected experts in the field of clinical psychology as well from a diverse group of children, families and parents.
