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.
These work experiences have allowed me the opportunity to collaborate with other health professionals and provide the best care for my clients. During this time my specialties became anxiety, trauma, life transitions, and disordered eating. My work includes varying therapy modalities but my focus on the brain-body connection, is always a focal point, where I believe the most healing can occur. I am a holistic therapist and have extensive training in EMDR, Intuitive Eating, and Somatic therapies. In addition to these therapy modalities, I am also a Be Body Positive Facilitator, Usui Reiki Master and Certified Yoga Teacher, which helps me bring even more perspective into the therapy room. 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. Cultivating connection allows trust to be built and active work to be done. 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.
