When I began therapy with Dr. Shaffer, I had a very difficult time talking about or even identifying my feelings. It took me awhile to open up and share my own childhood trauma and abuse with her. I had been in counseling for 20+ years and had never told any counselor about it. Dr. Lisa Shaffer has used different strategies to help me deal with the depression, stress and panic attacks effectively. She is very knowledgable about the 12 step programs and able to incorporate it into my therapy.
Dr. Shaffer was able to fit me in the same day when I called her office in crisis. She didn’t hesitate to go above and beyond for me even though I was a new patient. She stayed late to see me. I feel like she hears me and truly cares about my situation. She recommended a great book at my first visit.
Dr. Lisa Shaffer is an expert in helping people who suffered abuse. She is very relatable and down to earth. Dr. Shaffer is very non-judgemental, attentive and knowledgeable. I appreciate that she respects your pace for moving forward based on your comfort level. The Center For Trauma & Abuse and Dr. Shaffer, Psy. D. have helped me to overcome crippling anxiety and overwhelming post-traumatic stress disorder. I can't thank her enough.
