I am a licensed professional clinical counselor, board certified dance/movement therapist, and a registered yoga teacher living in San Francisco.

I became a dance/movement therapist because this therapy combines two of the things I am most passionate about: dance and psychology. As a counselor, I have the privilege of working with those who may not be as comfortable with movement but still have issues they would like to address. 

My background includes work with a variety of ages (children-older adults) and disorders (mood, thought and personality). Most recently, I have spent much of my time working in an inpatient psychiatric facility with adults, providing clients with a full schedule of therapeutic activities.

I enjoy working with diverse populations and clients with different challenges and look forward to speaking with you! Feel free to contact me with any questions: lisa@lisamanca.com.
