Dr. Lisa Novak

Coming from a family with 3 generations of therapists and psychologists, I never had a doubt that helping people get a peace of mind is my calling as well. For years, I’ve been providing individual & family counseling, focusing on helping you all achieve a kind of mental zen that’s so crucial in the hectic world we live in today.
Experienced in applying all kinds of techniques, I feel fully prepared for helping you get your psychological health and well-being back on track. My approach will get anyone out of the deepest depression hole!
