Lisa May, LCSW
Introducing Lisa May, LCSW. Born and raised in Reno, Lisa has strived to give back to this community in various ways. As a local social worker of 15 years, Lisa brings her experience and expertise, along with a great passion for helping individuals, couples, and families. She has had the privilege of serving a diverse group of individuals in various settings and with a wide range of needs. During the first decade of her career, she worked primarily with children exposed to abuse and neglect and children with acute and chronic illnesses. Additionally, she had the opportunity to practice crisis intervention in the emergency room. In recent years, she has performed therapy services in a behavioral health hospital and on an outpatient basis. In addition to her therapy practice, Lisa is committed to the social work profession and believes in a career legacy. In her spare time, she teaches social work courses at the University of Nevada, Reno.
Lisa has served individuals of all ages and backgrounds, as well as couples and groups. Her approach is client-centered and trauma-informed. She is trained in specific therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Lisa recognizes that being vulnerable is hard. However, with vulnerability comes healing. The most important part of healing our emotional wounds is having the courage to open up again. It is simply our willingness to show up as we are and to trust in and accept the help being offered that will ultimately lead us to the path of healing. As your clinician, Lisa will meet you where you are on this path. You can expect to be met with a compassionate, empathetic, and committed response to your care needs.
