Lisa Peaty, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker Supervisor | Certified in Brainspotting
A graduate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Georgia, Lisa is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with extensive experience working with individuals, children and families in a variety of settings. Lisa has a passion for treating children and families and is creative and adaptive in her approach to treatment. She draws from attachment based and neuroscience supported interventions in her work and recently completed her certification in Brainspotting. Brainspotting operates off of the premise that “where you look affects how you feel” and is a powerful tool to aid in processing and releasing a wide range of emotionally and bodily based conditions, including anxiety, depression, and trauma.
Lisa treats children as young as five years, and involves parents and caregivers in treatment. She also enjoys working with adolescents, young adults and adults in any stage of life. She frequently incorporates a family systems approach in her work, as well as elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulnesss, brainspotting, and directive and non-directive methods of play therapy.
Areas of specialization include anxiety and depression in children and adults, parent/child relationships, parenting, co-parenting optimization, complex trauma (including adoption), grief and loss, stress, and women’s’ issues.
Partnering with individuals, children and families to address deep struggles in their lives is an honor, and Lisa values the deep trust that clients share with her in their desire to achieve wellness.
Outside of work, Lisa enjoys gardening, cooking, baking, exercising, reading and being outdoors and spending time with her family and friends.
