Lisa Ford

Therapist (LMSW)

We repeat what we don’t repair! 

I hold a Master’s degree in Social Work and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh.  After my education, I worked as an individual practitioner at a private practice in Pittsburgh from 2009 – 2017.  In 2017, I relocated to St. Mary’s County to work at the Department of Social Services, as the Assistant Director of Social Services until 2019.  At that time, I decided to pursue my real career interest, going full-time in the private practice field again.  While in Maryland, I have worked in two Outpatient Mental Health Clinics in Oxon Hill, MD and, now, proudly see clients full-time with Serenity Place, LLC.

I have over 25 years of experience supporting children, youth, adults, and families towards mental, emotional, and spiritual wholeness in the child welfare and mental health systems.  My focus is in providing holistic therapy services (mind, body, and soul), with an empathetic and non-judgmental attitude to support my clients in their personal growth.  I strongly believe therapy can equip everyone with the skills to manage symptoms, reduce stress, and improve their quality of life.

Finally, and maybe most importantly, I love my hometown teams, the Steelers and Penguins!
