Lisa Franklin Topchik, LICSW
Lisa Topchik is a couples and individual therapist and has been with Guttman & Pearl Associates for the last 10 years. She specializes in sex therapy, couples therapy, and individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and the effects of trauma.
Lisa is nurturing, attentive, and accepting. Her top priority with her clients is to create a comfortable environment. She believes that when people feel cared for and respected, they are most able to grow and make positive changes. Within a supportive, caring therapeutic environment, Lisa encourages clients to explore new and sometimes difficult parts of themselves, and to ”stretch” beyond their comfort zones. That said, clients have the option to pass on a topic; they determine the pace. Clients, whether individuals or couples, usually leave sessions with homework assignments, created together with Lisa.
