Lisa Fredsall, LCAS, LCSW.
Twelve years ago, Lisa discovered her true calling to social work and decided to pursue a career in the field by becoming educated.
By pursuing her passion of helping others, Lisa has been able to ensure others would never be alone with their struggles. Along the way, she obtained her AS in human services at Northwestern CT community college while taking full advantage of volunteer opportunities to help the local community.
As president of Phi Theta Kappa, she dedicated her free time to helping provide prom dresses, warm clothing, and books to those locally and abroad living in impoverished communities. After graduating valedictorian from NCCC, Lisa obtained her BSW at Saint Joseph College for Women, graduating Summa Cum Laude.
Upon graduation, Lisa was accepted into the advanced standing MSW degree program at UCONN’s School of Social Work, where she specialized in casework regarding mental health and substance abuse. After completing her MSW program, Lisa specialized in working in substance abuse treatment, such as SAIOP.
While life circumstances dictated a move to North Carolina, Lisa persevered in pursuing her LCSW licensure and her LCAS licensure. She has experience working with substance use treatment, mental health disorders, assertive community treatment teams, and dealing with those who suffer from functional impairments related to psychotic disorders. Lisa has been in the field for the past 13 years and has experience as a clinician, clinical supervisor, and administrator. Her supervisory skills span the past seven years since she transitioned from an assertive community treatment team leader to a clinical director.
Lisa lives in North Carolina with her family, and she enjoys being a part of the individualized treatment offered at Mountainview Recovery. Lisa’s philosophy consists of providing the best clinical care to clients no matter their background or disorders. She specializes in CBT, DBT, REBT, reality-based therapy, motivational interviewing, and trauma-focused therapy.
