Liza Blank, LCSW

“Therapy is a space for you to safely explore your feelings, challenges, experiences and past trauma. It allows you to consider your experience and needs without the complications of a loved one’s feelings or advice. Therapy helps you to notice and shift behaviors that create anxiety, sadness, or simply keep you from being fulfilled. ”

Since 2003, I have worked with adults, families and children. Most notably, my clients struggle with issues of  anxiety, depression, relationship issues, traumatic history, alcoholism, divorce, bullying, and issues of sexual identity.

I work with people on a wide range of issues. The following are a few of my specialties (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • PTSD

  • Relationship Issues

  • Identity Issues

  • Bullying

  • Co-Dependency

  • Parenting

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start? 

Starting therapy happens at different points for each person. For some, it feels like a scary step to begin to explore and discuss current and past challenges, for others this comes as a great relief. Always, it is a brave step to begin to look more deeply into how you are living your life.  You can expect the process of therapy with me to be one that is suited to your individual needs, that respects your pace, and is encouraging.
