My name is Lisa Lemmons, and I graduated in 2016 from Alliant International University, with my doctorate in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis in Health Psychology. I completed my internship and post-doctoral years in Southeast Idado, and worked with adolescents and adults in different mental health settings. During my internship, I also volunteered to be a facilator for an HIV support group and found this to be a very rewarding experience. My primary position during my postdoctoral year was working in the adolescent unit at an inpatient mental health hospital. I returned to California in 2017, and have worked mainly in a forensic setting with female inmates. I have also worked in a private practice working with individuals with worker’s compensation injuries.
I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, but especially have an interest in psychological assessment and health psychology. My dissertation was focused on complementary and alternative treatments with individuals with bipolar disorder, and this interest is now something I incorporate into the treatment of all patients. I have a specific interest in weight management, infertility, and adoption/foster care. My work utilizes a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach, examining how our thoughts affect our behaviors.
I was born in Washington State, but spent five years living in England. I am very family oriented and have three brothers who I am very close to. I have three children, two of which I adopted as infants. I enjoy spending my free time traveling, reading, listening to music, singing, and enjoying quality time with family.
