    Finck Lisa

    Hi. My name is Lisa and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor at Restorative Pathways. You might also call me an encourager, master reframer, and lifelong learner. I have worked with clients of all ages, but am primarily serving adults at this time. I have a real passion for joining others on their journeys to peace, joy, healing, growth and wellness. I work with clients experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, life adjustments and transitions, and those who have experienced trauma. My clinical and lived experience has taught me that all people want to be seen, heard, and valued. I strive to provide that experience to each of the clients I work with. I have also learned that each client has a goal or set of objectives they hope to reach and my job is to let them lead. I have found that developing skills in the areas of self-compassion, mindfulness, boundaries, and decision making are useful for many people and often become a part of the journey.

    I am deeply passionate about serving others who have been impacted by loss. It was not my academic or clinical training that drove me into this work, it was the painful loss of my son. Through my own healing journey, I developed a desire to help others move beyond the pain caused by loss.

    I enjoy walking alongside others as they find healing through the Grief Recovery Method®. I am grateful for the opportunity to support people as a counselor who are grieving a variety of losses including death, divorce, break-up, infidelity, miscarriage, infertility, financial and job loss, addictions, moving, loss of health, physical injury, and loss of hopes, dreams, and expectations.

    I also help people with anxiety, burnout, career counseling, depression, men's issues, relationship issues, phase of life problems, spiritual & religious problems, and substance use problems.

    I have my own private practice in Dublin, Ohio.  My career in counseling began in the 1980s when I volunteered as a helpmate for a partial hospitalization program assisting with recreation therapy and art therapy.  Later, I graduated to a paid part-time recreation therapist position at a 30-day drug rehab for adolescents.

    From those beginnings until now I have worked as a hospital psychiatric screener, an outpatient therapist at community mental health clinics and agencies, a social worker for Children and Families, and a Military and Family Life Counselor.

    My favorite position is the one I have now, specializing in the treatment of adults and adolescents suffering adjustment disorders, depression, and anxiety.
