Authentic, Honest and Helpful

I love Lisa’s no nonsense approach to talking about emotions and important mental health topics. She is very authentic, relatable and does a great job of breaking down clinical topics into easy to understand terms.

Support vs Treatment

Mental health expert Lisa Anderson Shaffer gives a clear and precise explanation of the difference between easily available advice and actual lasting treatment. She describes ethical behavior without judgment. Well done.
