Lisa Terry, MS, LPC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who enjoys working with men and women, adolescents and children eight years of age and older. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Florida in 1988 and my Master of Science degree in Community Counseling from Georgia State University in 1990.

I began my career in counseling at the United Methodist Children's Home (UMCH) in Decatur, Georgia where I served as Director of Counseling Services overseeing eight other therapists. In 1994, I left UMCH and joined a group practice.

In 1998, I began successfully treating patients suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disoder and other anxiety disorders with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). This specialized form of treatment has grown to become an area of expertise. I opened my own private practice in 2000.

Since 2000, I have written articles  for couples that have chosen to not have children,  divorce and anxiety.  I was selected by MTV to provide therapeutic input for an episode of "I Used to be Fat,"  a show that depicts overweight high school seniors on their quest to lose significant amounts of weight before starting college.   The show originally aired in 2011 and can be seen on line at MTV.
