Meet Our Counseling and Integrative Mental Health Practitioners
Lisa Levens is a Licensed Professional Counselor specializing in the unique experiences surrounding the childbearing/child-rearing years. She has worked in a variety of settings including her current private practice, community mental health agencies and hospitals. Lisa’s empathic style and integrative approach emphasizes cognitive behavioral and solution-focused methods.
One of Lisa’s passions is the power of a group setting. She has developed and facilitates different groups to aid prospective parents and their partners entering the often confusing worlds of adoption, infertility, perinatal mood disorder recovery and what she refers to as the ‘baby bubble’.
Lisa graduated in 1994 from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology with a Masters degree in clinical psychology.

She is an active member of the American Counseling Association and certified in Perinatal Mood Disorders from the Post Partum Stress Center, in Rosemont Pennsylvania.
“Transitioning into parenthood isn’t typically easy under the best of circumstances. However, creating a safe, compassionate atmosphere, as well as referencing accurate resources and support, can transform one of the most difficult and confusing times into one of self-awareness and strength.”
