Lisa Twiggs


About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker/counselor working in Murphy NC. I am a Christian and my faith is the most important part of my life. I am not a Bible scholar, but instead use stories and examples from Jesus in my therapy sessions with other Christians. In fact, I prefer to look up a verse, chapter, or circumstance to explore with the individual. I believe in applying Jesus' teachings to our daily lives. I believe that none are perfect except Jesus himself. I have trained in a Christian process to work with couples in counseling.

I have over 25 years of experience working with individuals, families, adolescents, youth, and children. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and more. I am a trained professional in trauma related issues.
My counseling philosophy is one of mutual respect and acceptance. I believe that all people have struggles at times and we often learn coping behaviors that get in our way in later circumstances. I believe that our challenges in live are used to bring us closer to Jesus and more in alignment with His teachings.

All people can benefit from a warm and interactive therapeutic experience. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, and a non-invasive therapy called EMDR, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. I will tailor your therapeutic experience to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to come to therapy for the first time. I desire to support you in seeking a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
