Lisa Higginson, MC, LPC, CCTS-I

My name is Lisa Higginson, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and owner of Mindful Core Counseling, PLLC. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families at any stage, and can help guide you or your loved ones through life’s stressors. Whether it’s anxiety, depression, parenting challenges or feeling lost in what’s next in life, I can help. I have a Master’s degree in Professional and Christian Counseling from GCU. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Family and Human Development. I have worked in several roles serving Arizona's families and children since 2008. I have worked in a counseling setting since 2017. I am a National Board-Certified Counselor with the NBCC, and have obtained my certificate as a Clinical Trauma Specialist Individual (CCTS-I) through the Arizona Trauma Institute. My desire is to help individuals be the best version of themselves. I incorporate a mixture of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Mindfulness into all of my therapy sessions.
