Lesa Vivio counseling


Finding YOUR path...

Over Lesa's years of service, she has come to believe that personal growth is directly relational to what we are able to see and accept.  Our personal awareness, understanding, and adaptability to change will always play a role in what we see as truth.  

Her goal is to assist you with improving your understanding of your concerns so that you can determine a solution that is achievable and realistic for you

Something familiar... Something unique.

Not every therapist is a good match for every client...  Lesa is certainly no exception.  To her, the counseling relationship is the most important piece of the puzzle.

It is important to her to be authentic with you, so you can be so with her. 

Brain Injury Counseling

In 1996, the Brain Injury Association of America established ACBIS as a standing committee of the association to address training needs of licensed and non-licensed staff in brain injury services. ACBIS operates under its own by-laws as approved by the Board of Directors of the Brain Injury Association of America. 

As a Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS), Lesa is qualified and dedicated to providing the necessary feedback and resources of care for persons with brain injuries, as well as the families of survivors.  

These include:

  • Cognitive, psychological and social consequences of brain injury; 
  • Behavioral approach for managing challenging behaviors and promoting positive skills; and
  • Techniques for effectively working with families.
