Lisa, About.com's Guide to Phobias, has years of experience working in community mental health.
Lisa began her experience in the field of mental health in childhood when she frequently accompanied her mother, a therapist, to work at the Winter Haven Hospital Community Mental Health Center. With years of familiarity in the field, it was only natural that Lisa would follow in her mother's footsteps. Her diverse experiences include both case management and hands-on patient care at a variety of residential and outpatient facilities.
Lisa holds a B.A. in Psychology from the University of South Florida.

I come from a long line of family members in the helping professions. Through my writing, I hope to share my knowledge and experiences in a way that will help others negotiate the system and ultimately beat their phobias.
