Hello! My name is Lisa Neuweg and I have been practicing psychotherapy since 2005. I received my Clinical License (LCPC) in 2007. I graduated from Bradley University with my Bachelor or Arts degree in 2001 and from there received my Master of Arts degree in Human Development Counseling at the University of Illinois at Springfield in 2004.
Upon completion of my Master's degree, I became employed at Chestnut Health Systems in Bloomington, IL as an inpatient addiction therapist. During my two and a half years at Chestnut Health Systems, I provided counseling and support to clients with alcohol and drug dependency issues. I developed and facilitated goal-oriented psychoeducational and activity therapy groups. During my time working with clients in group and individual counseling, I used a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and person-centered therapy. In addition, I provided comprehensive case management services, including creating treatment plans and connecting clients and families to appropriate resources in the community. I also presented case history material to review and discuss with other staff members.
For the past 11 years, I have been employed with Agape Counseling in Bloomington, IL. I provided counseling to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families in this outpatient setting. I participated in weekly consultation services with my peers and a consultation expert in order to provide my clients with the most relevant and clinically appropriate treatment. I utilized evidence-based interventions and protocols for maximizing outcomes for specific diagnoses/populations. I facilitated several groups and workshops during my time at Agape Counseling. I facilitated groups for adolescent girls on the topics of anxiety, stress management, and healthy relationships to self and others. I Co-facilitated a group for increasing social skills for adolescents on the spectrum as well as a group for adults on healthy boundaries. I also provided workshops on self-compassion for mothers and mindful parenting.
My speciality skills include a certification in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), extensive training and experience working with self-harm issues in adolescents,
skilled in mindfulness and self-compassion practices, trained in providing grief counseling to individuals who have experienced pregnancy loss, and trained in using yoga, mindfulness, and basic nutrition to treat trauma.
I strive to use an integrative approach in my work with clients, with an emphasis on CBT and mindfulness, based on evidence-based practices and appropriate treatment for each client. I have an excellent ability to build therapeutic relationship and facilitate growth with my clients. I am well respected by my peers in the field and passionate about continuing to provide effective treatment.
