Lisa Youngman-Loose, MA, LPC, is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed to practice in the State of Michigan. She earned her undergraduate degree from Central Michigan University and her Master’s degree from Western Michigan University. She has been working in the mental health system since 2006. She is active in the field of counseling with a diverse background of experiences that include inpatient setting, community mental health, case management, employment specialist, addiction, and criminal justice/jail systems.
Lisa prefers approaches that utilize aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectal behavior therapy, and are solution focused.
Lisa believes that you are the expert in your own life, however we all need support and encouragement. She wants to work together to identify concerns, go to those hard places, set goals, discuss behaviors, and process trauma, emotions, or thought patterns which do not serve your journey. Her desire for you is to feel open, safe and comfortable. Her goal is to provide you with a collaborative, therapeutic space that will foster trust and allow for increased understanding and growth.
Lisa enjoys all that nature provides to us in Northern Michigan including kayaking, boating, walking her dogs and skiing.
