Lisa Hay, MFA, MSW, LCSW
In Ms. Hay's psychotherapy practice working with adolescents, men, women and families, the focus is typically on issues such as behavioral concerns, depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, and ADHD. She believes that everyone is entitled to be treated with respect and honesty and that therapy should start where the client is at. Additionally, each client has their own ways of gaining insight and implementing new patterns into their lives and will have their own pace at which they discover the strengths within themselves. Ms. Hay likes to work with the client to discover what is most effective for them and go from there.
Ms. Hay believes that it is important that the relationship between therapist and client is positive and productive and that if both work together growth can occur.
She uses CBT, EMDR, Brainspotting, Art therapy, Play therapy and other therapeutic modalities during sessions with clients. Another component of Ms. Hay's practice is a State-Approved Batterer's Intervention program. Ms. Hay developed and continually updates the program to reflect best practices. The program is a cognitive behavioral group that assists clients in increasing their insight and awareness as well as learning healthy relationship and parenting skills in a respective, honest and supportive, but not enabling environment.
Ms. Hay is licensed as a clinical social worker through the State of Alaska.
