Lisa Sharf's training is diverse, an aspect of her professional
practice that allows her to treat each patient effectively as an
individual. Today's reality of economic hardship, personal loss, and
feelings of being overwhelmed are coupled with incredible stress and
anger. We all need to be heard and we all need a way to cope!

"As a nurse practitioner, I
believe that each patient needs to be regarded holistically from a
psycho-biological-spiritual perspective. In this way, I am able to help
my patients reach their optimum level of health and wellness. To achieve
this I spend the necessary time with each patient, evaluating their
medical history and their current symptoms. I listen to their
psychosocial and spiritual needs. Together with the proper diagnosis, I
work together with each individual to develop the best treatment plan.
This includes proper medications that will alleviate their symptoms and
address their current diagnosis. We work together as a team developing a
plan that each individual can adhere to comfortably."
"My certification in
Psychiatry and Mental Health helps me to help my patients from a
psychobiological point of view."
