Hope... Vision... Recovery...

My name is Lisa Larimer Burtis. I’m so glad you have found me at Bitterroot Family Therapy. I am licensed as a Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT49997) in the State of California. I grew up in the San Francisco East Bay. After graduating high school (Albany High School – Go Cougars!), I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Montana, where I studied interpersonal communication. I attended graduate school at the University of San Francisco, earning a Masters in Counseling Psychology. Before moving into private practice, I worked in community mental health for over 15 years serving transition-age youth, families and adults. Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked in the field of information technology. An injury forced my hand and I needed to find another way of making a living. It didn’t take long for my work experience and educational background to illuminate a path toward becoming a therapist. With a focus on couples, families and individuals, I have a desire to instill hope; assist people in discovering a vision for their future; and to inspire recovery and healthy functioning. Helping people find a path forward is the cornerstone of my practice.
