Licensed Professional Counselor Associate
Hi, I’m Lisa Besch, Licensed Professional Counselor Associate under the supervision of Heather Cawthon, Ph.D., LPC-S. I understand that the struggle in life is real. I am passionate about walking alongside others, helping them find healing, and pursuing growth. Trauma survivors are my specialty. I have worked alongside those who have experienced many traumas in their life. I understand what it is like to get triggered by something and react in a way you don’t like. That is called a trauma response, and I can help you with those responses. Together we will process your trauma and find healing so that life won’t be as stressful for you.
I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. EMDR is a type of therapy that reprocesses traumatic events or memories. Research shows that trauma is stored in the body. When someone is triggered, they experience a trauma response like shutting down, getting angry, or avoiding the situation. Using an 8-step process, EMDR helps reprocess those memories.
I believe my experience as a former educator and trauma advocate has helped shape me into an intentional professional therapist. I look forward to working with you. You have taken a courageous step to ask for help!
