Since 1997, I have been a Certified Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist with an additional 200 foundational hours of yoga instruction registered through the Yoga Alliance with primary study in Kundalini yoga, with Yogi Ji Kaur Khalsa.
In 2006 I also earned a Master of Arts degree in Counseling studying theories of the psychotherapy masters from the recent 100 years. My primary focus from the counseling theories is actually translated through my mindfulness training with myriad renowned teachers from as early as the 1980's. Jon Kabat-Zinn, Tara Brach, Pema Chodran, Jack Kornfield, Belleruth Naparstek, Harriet Lerner, Marion Woodman and the Trauma-Sensitive work of Peter Levine, Bessel Van Der Kolk and David Emerson.
My work as a Phoenix Rising Yoga therapist was significantly influenced by the original co-creator and former program director, Karen Hasskarl, deceased. Her steady, compassionate and spacious teaching of Carl Rogers' work provides the context for unconditional loving presence and positive regard, in a non-directive, client-centered setting learned through direct clinical guidance.
Litchfield Counseling & Yoga is our small private practice devoted to healing the whole person and offering myriad solutions to help clients and students explore a multitude of options to find their personal best fit. Martha White is a clinical psychologist also doing EFT work and Nancy Rubillo is a Licensed Social Worker in Clinical practice. They both take insurance. Lisa does not bill for insurance. Combined we have decades and decades of experience.
The yoga therapy work in our quiet, earthy and intimate setting lasts typically 90 minutes and may involve a combination of various physical moves or it may be completely, fully well-supported by Lisa and/or with yoga props. There is often dialog and silence. As an artist and former professional dancer, music and soul collage may also be offered as part of the healing treatment protocol.
