Lisa Maria Walton

, AMFT

Associate Therapist

Lisa Maria considers herself a “late bloomer.” She spent much of her adulthood wearing different professional hats, while juggling many personal life challenges. But she continued to ponder her life’s trajectory. She knew she was creative with a passion to help others, which at age 55 led her to going back to graduate school to become a clinical therapist. Lisa Maria brings maturity, creativity, and a holistic approach to the therapy room. She specializes in helping clients overcome trauma, through EMDR, mindfulness practices, and other somatic therapies.

Clients like you love how authentic and open they feel when working with Lisa Maria. Clients love how relatable and sincere she is. Lisa Maria guides her clients toward making the right choices for their individual selves. She encourages her clients to speak their mind and share in their therapeutic process, to best cope and heal. She is able to connect with her clients on a personal and deep level.

Many may not know that: Lisa Maria is an introvert and admitted to enjoying the quiet of the “shut down” during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her favorite commune with nature is “hugging a redwood tree” or merely wandering in one of LA’s parks. When no one is looking, she indulges in watching anyone of Bravo’s “Housewives” shows, although she favors Beverly Hills.
