Lisa Brickert, MSW, LCSW

Lisa is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who earned her master’s degree from The Ohio State University. She grew up in Libertyville and is thrilled to return to her hometown after 15 years of clinical experience in a variety of settings, including home-based case management, schools, outpatient mental health, and hospitals.

 

Lisa has provided treatment in clinical settings for children, teens, adults, and families who struggle with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, stress, gender identity issues, self-esteem issues, impulsivity, defiance, and attention deficits. Lisa has worked in the schools implementing programs and services to individual students and groups to enhance coping skills and academic performance and has worked in crisis teams assessing for suicidality as well as crisis management. She uses CBT, DBT, Solution-focused therapy, play therapy (for younger clients) and EMDR to help her clients and their families reach their goals. Lisa is also trained to work with and assess adolescents for substance use, if this is a concern. She provides a non-judgmental, client-centered environment assisting clients to reach their personal goals of therapy. She believes in utilizing a team effort to help families become empowered and work through stressful times.

 

Lisa loves to work with all ages to help them find the tools to be happy, healthy and successful in life – whatever that means to that person. Everyone is different and has different goals for success. Lisa believes that her clients need to first and foremost develop a trusting relationship with their therapist. She knows how difficult it is to be vulnerable, so Lisa creates a safe place to work on self-improvement. When Lisa isn’t with clients, she enjoys playing ice hockey, going to baseball games, and spending time with her family.
