I, Lisa Omori, am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Idaho. I have been a professional counselor for over 25 years. I graduated from the University of Colorado-Boulder with my Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts and Education and then received my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology and Counselor Education from the University of Colorado at Denver.
I have worked with youth and their families in a variety of settings, including group homes, residential treatment facilities, community based organizations, day treatment programs, schools, and mental health centers. I have a good understanding of systems theory and the importance of working in conjunction with other community supports. I also enjoy working with adults of all ages. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is essential along with creating an environment which is friendly, safe and non-judgemental. I enjoy incorporating the expressive arts into my practice in order to encourage communication and creative thinking. As a certified yoga instructor, I also appreciate the connection of mind and body and believe that most clients can benefit from learning to breath, practicing mindfulness techniques and movement.
