Self Pay Rate: $99

Ann “Lisa” Peralta, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Ann Elizabeth Peralta is a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 25 years of experience in providing clinical assessment and therapeutic care to adults seeking help with a variety of issues. These issues include substance use disorders, stress, and anxiety, to name a few. Ann has experience working with the Hispanic population who are often struggling to learn how to understand and adapt to a culture vastly different from their own. She also has 12 years of experience teaching counseling theories and skills at her local community college.

Ann's ideal client is one who is motivated, open, and receptive to help as well as support as they navigate life challenges. This openness allows Ann to help them build healthy relationships, learn how to make positive life choices, and simply live a happy, healthy, productive life. Ann understands that at times one can feel "stuck" in attempting to cope with lifestyle-related problems — she seeks to help one identify maladaptive behavioral patterns and to work on making positive choices that may have left them feeling hopeless, helpless, and frustrated.

Ann's therapeutic approach is based on the principles of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, reality therapy, and rational emotive behavior therapy. Her approach is a holistic one, focusing on mind, body, and spirit. She understands that each individual is unique and tailors therapy to meet the specific needs of the given client.

Ann would like to have the opportunity to build a trusting, collaborative relationship with you to help you meet your life goals. She has the ability to establish a warm, caring, environment to help you make decisions and effectively direct your own life. You will work together to explore your thoughts, feelings, or fears that may have you feeling "stuck." Ann strongly feels that individuals are able to make better choices/decisions with the guidance and support of a genuine, understanding, empathetic, counselor, and she is fully committed to assisting you in achieving your goals with enthusiasm and optimism.
