Lisa Langstraat, MA, LPC    I feel deeply honored to have the good fortune of working in a field that contributes to the health and well-being of others. Being a counselor gives me the  opportunity to accompany others through important and meaningful growth as they work to enrich their lives, heal relationships, and build the kind of life they are happy to be living. I believe our world needs all of us to heal, to bring our healthiest and best selves to the task of living, loving, and contributing positively to our families, our communities, and our nation.
