At McGuire Christian Counseling we are privileged to work with counselors who specialize in a wide variety of topics and are always looking to explore new possibilities. One counselor who is leading the charge into new territories is Lisa.
Specialties: Parenting, Marriage and Family Counseling
Lisa is one of the newest additions to the McGuire Christian Counseling family. Before joining MCC, Lisa worked with students and parents as a school psychologist for 17 years before moving to Missouri. She recently obtained her provisional license in counseling and hopes to be fully licensed by fall of 2018.
Along with counseling, Lisa is spearheading McGuire Christian Counseling’s new nine week parenting series. Using Positive and Powerful Christian Parenting, a curriculum she developed, Lisa is excited to help parents gain the skills and strong foundation they need to help them create happy and healthy homes.
“God has given me a passion for working with parents and families. My inspiration has come from watching family members thrive individually and collectively as they witness the power of healthy relationships and boundaries.”
Lisa’s favorite part of being a counselor is participating in the nature of the counseling process and seeing the face of contentment when a client feels success in his/her pursuit of wellbeing.
In her spare of time, she loves to spend time with her husband and two sons, playing basketball, whiffle ball, football and golf, camping, and watching movies. One of Lisa’s favorite ways to relax is to curl up on our couch and watch Hallmark movies. “I find it priceless when I can get my nine-year-old son to watch one with me.”
We are blessed to have Leslie as part of the MCC family and we are excited to see how God will use her to help families within the Springfield community.
