TF-CBT Certified

DBT Trained/PESI Certified

Gottman Level 1 & 2


My name is Lisa Lacen, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, and I am the owner and a practitioner at Thriving Journey Therapy, PLLC.
I obtained my graduate degree in Marriage & Family Therapy from the University of Saint Joseph, and have 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults, young adults, individuals, couples, and families using a client-centered approach. 


When working with children who have experienced trauma, I work from a Cognitive Behavioral framework. I have state and national certification in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), which is a model that is empirically supported for youth ages 7-18 who have experienced trauma. 

I am also an EMDRIA approved EMDR trained clinician and utilize this model in working with adults who have presenting concerns ranging from trauma to anxiety, grief, and phobias. 

Currently, I hold PESI/Evergreen certification as a Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) with specific training in somatic and cognitive approaches to treating trauma in adults.

I have received training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and have PESI/Evergreen certification in DBT (CDBT) for mindfulness, distress tolerance, improving interpersonal relationships, and emotion regulation.

I have also completed Gottman Level 1 and Level 2 trainings, a model for treating couples and addressing various presenting concerns such as communication breakdowns, conflict, difficulties in connecting, infidelity, and so much more. 


My clinical experience is in a variety of settings including outpatient, private practice, college, and school-based settings.
In my clinical work, I take a holistic approach to treatment, with specific attention to inclusion, cultural sensitivity, and mind body wellness. My main areas of practice are in treating trauma, anxiety, depression, adjustment difficulties, relationship issues.

My main objective is to help you reach your goals and gain invaluable skills along the way.
I am excited to begin this new journey with you.
