Read What Our Clients Are Saying About Lisa Kaplan MFT:
Lisa help us see and solve a major obstacle and a bunch of smaller ones got our relationship back on solid ground. Years later we are still very grateful for Lisa's gifts.
Lisa is compassionate and smart. We do not enjoy couples counseling very much, but Lisa makes it tolerable. Highly recommend.
We are so glad to have found Lisa. She has made a great difference in our life. Fair and balanced. I would highly recommend her.
If you are looking for a completely solid, centered, strong person who will allow you and your spouse to effectively communicate and connect on a deep, real level, Lisa Kaplan is the person you want to see. There are no surface solutions or cute little games. She focuses on the core issues and your core strengths and she assists you in harnessing these for long term, permanent, solutions. In other words, this is not a band aid approach. She brings a wisdom and a focus that is truly rare in any person and you will feel safe, heard, protected and empowered if you see her.
This is a strong five stars.
Lisa really is amazing! After 30 years of marriage we needed a tune-up. Lisa was able to get us back on track in no time! She taught us that it's all about communication and timing; she worked hard (and succeeded) at getting us to see the goodness in each other. Her methodology combined with a wonderful personality was super effective for us. Thank you so much Lisa!
My husband and I finally agreed to seek counseling after 27 yrs. Our marriage was struggling for a few years lacking in "healthy communication". She has helped us find each other all over again. My husband was adamant to NOT seek a therapists help for many years. We are truly greatful for Lisa's expertise on bringing the "spark" back into our marriage. Amazing how we can calmly listen and communicate since our first counsel. Her drive to listen and hear each others concerns was amazing to us. We now can recognize things in a much more positive way...Highly recommend Lisa for any marriage help one may need. She did wonders for us...
Lisa is simply the best therapist we've ever had. After 18 years of marriage my wife and I had seen other therapists with some success and we were in need of some real help. She said in the first session that she is not about picking sides, she is about the relationship. She stayed true to that statement.
We felt that she was engaged and present at each session. She cares. We feel that she helped us with new and meaningful tools to keep our marriage growing.
"Lisa is great! My husband and I decided to seek out a marriage counselor after 6 years of marriage and 2 children. We were both happy in our marriage, but it was not always ideal. We found ourselves having a difficult time communicating and repeating the same arguments over and over again. Lisa coached us through many of these arguments and gave us the communication tools to handle any that might arise in the future! We both really enjoyed our sessions with Lisa and found that it was so valuable to seek her help at this time in our relationship!"

"I originally contacted Lisa because we reached a point where (after 17yrs.) we had a total communication breakdown to the point where we couldn't enjoy each other's company the same anymore. It always felt like work. We bickered all the time.
Lisa helped us be more kind and have understanding for each other's opinions and experiences...and learn how to communicate in a healthy way. We rarely bicker anymore, but when we do, we now know how to get ourselves out of it quickly and keep the peace. We are now on the same team. We are so much happier now have fun together every day:)
Thank you Lisa for helping us get back on track!!!"
- Jeanine E.
"Lisa has a complete calm cool demeanor about her which allows my wife and I to feel so comfortable to open up to her. Lisa has been very instrumental in our successful marriage, she understands our needs and is very eager to help with any misunderstandings. Thanks Lisa!"
- Doug A.
"Lisa is absolutely amazing!!!!!! She has been instrumental in helping to mend a relationship that, in my opinion, was beyond repair. We had been to a few couples counselors in the past that we thought were good but somehow we still ended up right back where we started after a "temporary bandaid" had been put in place. Once we started seeing Lisa we realized that we didn't know the first thing about working on our relationship. Without her patience, kindness and genuine interest in helping us heal as a couple, we never would have known just how much we really love each other and how much our relationship means to one another.
17 years together and we ready to give up and walk away.......now we are getting to know each other all over again and remembering why we fell in love 17 years ago.
Truly amazing is the best description I can think of to describe my experience with Lisa. Thanks."
- Lisa M.
"My husband and I were in a very negative place in our relationship. We weren't communicating and seemed more like roommates than a couple that had been together almost 36 years. We knew we needed help. After the first visit with Lisa we both knew that this was the person who was going to get us back on track. The "Imago" approach to couples counseling was so enlightening and made it easier for us to understand what we needed to do to start rebuilding a healthy and happy relationship.
This is a new beginning for us. We are so grateful to Lisa and all that she has taught us."
- Kim S.
"My fiance and I found Lisa about a year and a half ago when we were in the middle of wedding planning and moving in together(!). We couldn't seem to stop fighting about everything much less understand where the other was coming from.
Lisa was a life (and marriage) saver. She really taught us to learn to listen to what the other is saying and try to understand where we are each coming from and why we each feel the way we do.
My new husband and I have grown and matured so much through this process and Lisa came not a moment to soon."
- Heather A.
"After 30 years of being together and last kid off to college we were barely tolerating each other. My husband moved out, filed for divorce thinking that's what I wanted too. Wrong! Thank God I found Lisa who very gently renewed our relationship and saved our marriage. Now our relationship is back on track and we have the tools to work out our issues."
- Joanne B.
"Lisa is awesome! She has taken our calls off of the clock and checked in periodically to see how my boyfriend and I are doing. She has definitely helped our relationship as well as helped build our individual communication skills.
Affordable and empathetic I would (and have) suggested her to friends."
- Liz D.
"While Lisa now specializes in couples therapy Lisa has been my therapist for many years. Going to speak with her is both comfortable and professional. I have learned a tremendous amount about myself and my girlfriend from seeking out Lisa's help and advice. I especially like her approach, Imago therapy, which clicked with me from the start and seems so logical to me. Lisa helps me see things in a different light, both my actions and my girlfriends, which enables me to change my behavior for the better without feeling forced to do so. While going to her (and putting in the work yourself) will help your relationship invaluably, you also get the free benefit of being a better person in general. I highly recommend seeking her out if you need relationship advice."
- Eric M.
"My Wife and I have never been happier before and communicated so well since we started seeing Lisa. The tools that Lisa has provided us with, help us reconnect and find the fun and love our marriage had been missing. Thank You Lisa! I would recommend my friends and anyone to see Lisa because I know she can help!"
- Sterling C.
"I first came to Lisa for individual counseling two years ago, and I have been her client ever since! I was searching for a good therapist in the area, and I happened to stumble across this page on Yelp. At first I was reluctant to see a therapist, but I am so grateful that I took a chance!
Back then, I was in a very different place in my life, in need of support and guidance from someone whom I could trust. Lisa has provided me with this and more. She not only gave me all of the support that I needed, but she also helped me discover my inner strength-- something that I did not know existed. She has believed in me and encouraged me through every step of my evolution to happiness and success. As a result I am now confident, and I believe in myself. I would not be where I am now, having just completed graduate school, without her support! She genuinely cares about her clients and has truly been a blessing in my life. Her counseling has helped me as an individual, and I am confident of her abilities to help anyone in need."

"My wife and I have always loved each other very much, but after 37 years of being together, I felt that we needed a better way to communicate. It was hard for me to change some disruptive habits that I had developed, and this was causing serious damage to our relationship. As a consequence of my actions, my beautiful wife had become defensive and unhappy.
We have seen Lisa for the last few months, and I think that we both have been amazed at how much better our marriage is, but how much happier we both are.
Lisa's guidance has given both of us the tools to redirect the very negative direction we had been going. We are both so grateful for the tools that she has given us and fell that we are on the right trajectory to a joyful and fulfilling life together.
Our marriage is still not perfect (and may never be), but we both feel like we have the tools be in a much more rewarding place, and to better handle dissension and disagreements.
We are both very grateful for Lisa getting us both on the track to a great marriage !!"
- Patrick T.
"My husband and I hit an impasse several months ago and sought Lisa's help. Within one session we were back on the path to reconnecting. Lisa gave us a couple of excellent tools to use on an ongoing basis to communicate on a deeper and more productive level, and over the course of a couple of months she helped us practice using these tools. Our marriage has taken a wonderful turn and it was amazing how quickly we were able to move towards each other again, instead of away. We totally recommend Lisa."
