My goal as a therapist is to intentionally connect with each person I come in contact with and observe how their experiences have shaped their lives on every level.
My name is Lisah Sutton-Williams, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the states of Kentucky and Indiana and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of Kentucky.
I received my Master’s in Social Work from the University of Louisville in 2007, with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy. Following graduation, I worked in a community mental health agency in a school setting, providing intensive outpatient services for children and families with severe emotional disturbances. This included in-home work, where I was able to be a part of the family system and help clients in their natural environment.
More recently I worked in another mental health agency providing outpatient services to children and families with varying mental health related issues. This allowed me the opportunity to collaborate with other health professions and provide the best care for my clients. During this time my specialties became anxiety, depression, life transitions, and disordered eating. My work includes varying therapy modalities but my focus on the brain-body connection, is always present. I have extensive training in EMDR, Intuitive Eating, and Somatic therapies. I am also a Be Body Positive Facilitator and Certified Yoga Teacher. Along the way, I also became a supervisor for up and coming clinicians in Social Work and Marriage and Family Therapy on their way to licensure.
I strive to create a calm and inviting environment for my clients and work WITH them, for their very unique set of needs, to find what will work best for them. Together, we can move toward healing.
I am originally from Paducah, KY, but I have lived in Louisville, KY since graduating from high school. I now call Louisville home as well.
