Lisa Grant-Feeley, MS, LPC

Lisa-CHF_0810A Licensed Professional Counselor, Lisa Grant-Feeley provides individual, family and couples counseling.

Her graduate program – and experience since then – focuses on children and adolescents, and she always considers the family structure as integral in her work. As the parent of three strong-willed adult children, she is aware of the joy and challenges that come with raising family.

Lisa provides compassionate support in a space free of judgment to help individuals thrive, and couples and families develop healthy, positive interactions.

Therapy for Children

Lisa understands that play is the language children and young adolescents use to best communicate their thoughts and feelings, and as a Licensed Professional Counselor, she utilizes creative and play therapy techniques in order to help her clients feel most comfortable. Lisa works to create a safe space in which her clients can relay distressing experiences openly, actively listening to the needs of each client and working with a targeted plan of action in order to reach a solution.

Explosive Behavior

For children who display explosive behaviors, Lisa works on collaborative problem solving with both the parents and the client to support the development of important skills, such a flexibility, problem solving, emotional regulation, frustration tolerance and social functioning. As children with explosive behavior are often lacking in one or more of these shills, Lisa helps guide them through these practices so when they are faced with a situation that they were once not equipped to manage; they have the skills needed for a more expected response.

ADHD

For children with ADHD or ADHD symptoms, Lisa supports the child and family in understanding these behaviors and learning strategies to manage them proactively.

Therapy for Teens

Lisa has found that with the flood of exposure in social media, many teens have developed a highly self-critical voice that reduces the ability for high self-esteem. This along with the increased level of competitiveness in academics, sports and extra-curricular activities, can often lead to feelings of anxiety and depression.

Learning Self-Compassion

Learning self-compassion can aid in creating a kinder internal voice. Lisa works with clients to help them find this voice, through identifying and exploring each individual’s strengths and empowering self-acceptance. This serves to reduce the stressful, and at times, all-encompassing feelings of self-doubt.

Therapy for Adults

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

In addition to her focus on strengths and collaborative problem solving, Lisa also utilizes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. CBT focuses on how we think and what we believe and then helps us gain insight into the impact our thoughts and beliefs have on our feelings and behaviors.

By exploring the way in which our past has helped shape our beliefs and attitudes, new, more constructive patterns of thoughts and behaviors can be learned.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is often practiced in session and used to support the work of CBT to increase the ability to be present in the moment. This helps to create the internal space needed for all change in thoughts and behavior to occur.

Play Therapy

Play Therapy is increasingly the recognized method of working with children and adolescents. Play is natural for children who are able to more readily engage in this type of therapy than traditional talk therapy, because play is the language children use to communicate. A trained play therapist understands the metaphors used in the child’s play to gain understanding of the problem areas and recognize the stages of healing. Play therapy provides safe and supportive environment so the child can work through problems, express themselves and heal without feeling overwhelmed or being re-traumatized.

Additionally, play therapy addresses the sensory component of trauma that cannot be achieved through traditional psychotherapy. The combination of family therapy “talk time” and play therapy integrates the cognitive memories of trauma/loss with the part of the brain that holds the deeper emotional experience: the body itself.

Play Therapy is effective for resolving behavior problems at home and school, anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, loss and adjustment to family stressors and life transitions. The child is able to learn adaptive skills, gain self-control and mastery, increase self esteem and heal from trauma and loss.

Carolyn Abele, MS, LPC

Carolyn Abele is a Licensed Professional Counselor in practice over 12 years. She provides individual and family counseling, behavior and parenting support, and clinical supervision.

“Adjusting to parenthood is a major transition in life, and can bring highs and lows. Pregnancy and becoming a new parent can bring up a lot of feelings that most women (men, too!) experience, but aren’t comfortable addressing openly. It is so important that new parents take time to take care of themselves, so they can be the best parent they can.”

Carolyn has experience working with women and couples to navigate this exciting, and sometimes difficult, transition.
