Dr. Lisa Kruger, PhD, LPC
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Virginia and Washington, D.C. and have over 17 years of experience providing therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. I specialize in work with clients who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship and life transition stressors, trauma, drug and alcohol use or dependency, and grief/loss. Because each person brings a unique story and perspective, I personalize treatment based on individual needs.
How can therapy help you?
When you feel stuck in the same unhealthy patterns and recognize that the path you’re on isn’t healthy for you to continue down anymore, you may think “I’ve been doing this for so long, how do I even change it at this point?” The idea of change itself can be overwhelming and it can be difficult to know where to even start.
Therapy provides a safe space to help you get to the core of what’s keeping you stuck and empowers you to detour from the current path you’re on. In our sessions, we will work together to find a new patterns and habits that lead you to feeling more confident in dealing with life’s challenges and emotionally “lighter”. Everyone experiences things differently through their own personal lens; therefore, your treatment will be tailored to meet your specific needs.

Each person brings a unique perspective on life’s challenges. Together, we will create an individualized plan that will help you identify underlying patterns you may feel stuck in and provide you with tools to create a healthier path for yourself.
