Licensed Mental Health Counselor


Lisa Floyd, NCC, LMHC

  • Religious Trauma

  • Adoption Therapy Specialist

  • Certified Brainspotting Therapist


As many as 1-in-3 adults in the United States have suffered from Religious Trauma at some point in their life, and as many as 1-in-5 currently suffer from multiple debilitating Religious Trauma symptoms. This can look like deep or chronic shame about being a sinner and not living up to expectations, chronic fear or anxiety around salvation, rapture, Hell, Satan, or demons, and feelings of unworthiness, being unlovable, or bad in some way. I have lived experience deconstructing my own religious beliefs, and I focus my practice on supporting others who have experienced Religious Trauma. I am a trauma informed and certified Brainspotting therapist who can help you to deconstruct from religious teachings that may have harmed you and begin to create healthy ways to establish boundaries.


I employ a strengths-based approach in therapy which focuses more on your internal strengths and resourcefulness and less on weaknesses, failures, and shortcomings. I am also informed about Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB). I enjoy working with those who have experienced relationship issues, emotional neglect, and codependency.


As an adult adoptee, I am passionate about working with other adoptees and helping heal all members of the adoption constellation. I completed the National Adoption Competency Mental Health Training for Mental Health Professionals through Center for Adoption Support and Education. I have contributed to the books The Adoptee Survival Guide (2015) and Adoption Therapy: Perspectives from clients and clinicians on processing and healing post-adoption issues (2014). I have also been a speaker at the Indiana Adoptee Network Conference (2018).


I completed my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Indiana Wesleyan University.  Feel free to reach out to me at
