Our Care Team

Lisa K. Terwilliger



All providers bring a unique personhood and perspective to their work. What makes me different is the depth, breadth, and wide-ranging settings I have had the opportunity serve clients through. If there is a treatment setting that people have sought help in; I have worked there. In the end, I find that we are all the same - we want hope that life can and will be better. Asking for help is just one of the first steps in that journey.

I want patients to know that I believe in them. That I will coach, encourage, teach, model skills, laugh, and be real with them. I believe in being “with” my clients versus “providing treatment to” my clients. This means that I will ask them to rate their own progress and rate me on how I helped them. Their feedback is essential so that I can become an effective therapist for the work we do together.


As an experienced and continually improving clinician, Lisa K. Terwilliger's work has included a wide range of client populations from children, youth, young adults in the college setting. Adults in crisis, elders, families in crisis, persons with developmental disabilities, and substance use disorders. And those recovering from sexual offending and victims of sexual abuse and various traumas. She brings a focus on resiliency, strengths training, feedback informed, trauma-informed and holistic care for the mind, body, and spirit to her work.
