Lisa Duez - LCSW, CSAC

My goal is to help you understand your emotions, behavior and challenges. As we work to let go of perspecives and behaviors that hold us back, new healthier patterns can emerge and be adopted. Treatment is always focused on achieving a greater sense of comfort and satisfaction, psychologically, emotionally physically and spiritually.

I have specific training in:

  • Dialetical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): This type of therapy helps focus on acceptance of experiences while balancing the work needed to change negative behaviors. Mindfulness and CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) are integrated to assist in building emotional regulation and distress tolerance.

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR assists the client in transforming disturbing life experiences using an 8-phase protocol that work that re-frames cognition and memory about traumatic events. The result is elimination of the symptoms and emotional distress.

  • Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS): IFS helps you look at your own personality and assist in synthesizing the parts of personality that causes distress.

  • Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT): teaches you how to evaluate and change the upsetting thoughts you have had since your trauma. By changing your thoughts, you can change how you feel.
