Lisa’s Helping Anxious Kids presentation was well received… The audience felt comfortable asking questions about their own personal experiences. Lisa was self-assured and knowledgeable about a variety of issues related to anxiety and coping mechanisms.
The Anxiety Trends & Treatment Strategies workshop that you and Jax Anderson delivered was very beneficial to both myself and the attendees. It was very easy to work with you leading up to the workshop… I would recommend the workshop to other professionals.
Amazing! Your courage, compassion, and willingness to be so honest about your journey is refreshing and validating for so many who struggle with Social Anxiety Disorder. Thank you, thank you for sharing your experiences, good and difficult, with the world. This normalizes what many feel isolates them. You also did an amazing job explaining individual searching, individual therapy and group therapy! Many do not understand the benefits and you punctuated this clearly. I know my patients will benefit from reading your story. Thank you, thank you, again, for bringing light to what can feel like a dark and lonely place. May you continue to be blessed in your work!
Read your book in 2 days! It’s so good to know I am not alone in the struggle. I have several books about shyness, but I liked the fact that you told your story for everyone to relate to with ideas for continuing to find help and healing. Thank you for sharing your life story!
Your book helps my kids develop skills to deal with stressful situations.
I read your book right away and finished it in just a few days. It is fantastic and I commend you on your bravery to share your personal story. The book is also very helpful to me in seeing the anxiety struggles in my children, myself, my mother, and now my grandchildren too. I think you were brought into my life to help me see there are so many things I as a mother and grandmother just cannot control or fix. I need constant reminders of this as I always want to fix and help. Thank-you for writing your book.

Since most high school students experience some form of social anxiety and awkwardness, every teenager would benefit from reading this book!
