Lisa Shanken, AADP, AFI,
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am certified in nutrition and wellness. I focus on the relationship between brain and gut health, and how it impacts executive functioning. I am dedicated to helping people with learning and mental health disorders feel more confident and more successful in their day to day endeavors.
My ideal client struggles with learning differences including diagnoses such as ADHD/ADD, focus/concentration, disorganization, and non-verbal learning disorders as well as mental health struggles including addiction, anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. My ideal client is looking to master the healthy habits and lifestyle skills needed to accomplish their unique goals. My ideal client wants to feel better within their own mind and body, build self-confidence and get life back onto a happier and healthier track.
I specialize in executive functioning of the brain as well as the relationship between mental and physical health. I can teach you skills to improve focus, concentration, emotional regulation, impulse control, and working memory to improve day to day functioning, lower stress and anxiety, and lead a healthier lifestyle.
Please reach out to learn more about my services and how you can learn to live a life that feels more manageable, less stressful, healthier, and ultimately, happier. I am trained in executive functioning coaching as well nutrition, fitness, and yoga. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation.
