Lisa O'Bryan, LPC

I truly believe that successful therapy begins with a good fit between therapist and client.  I created this page to help you get to know me better so that you can feel encouraged to connect in person.

Who Am I...

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and therapist based here in Virginia Beach.  I founded Grace Covenant Counseling & Psychotherapy as a home for providing compassionate, confidential, and personalized therapy services because no one should struggle with life's challenges alone.

My passion for psychology and providing healing to others naturally led me to become a therapist.  I earned my bachelor's degree

from The University of Virginia and my master's degree in Psychotherapy from Old Dominion University.  After pursuing some extra graduate education, I decided I was ready to make the leap and join the clinical field as a therapist - and I'm so glad I did.  My work through Grace Covenant Counseling & Psychotherapy has allowed me to help so many people by doing what I do best.

What I Do...

I work with individuals, couples, and families from all over the Virginia Beach area - Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and beyond.  I'm passionate and skilled in working with teens to help them learn to navigate the difficult times they experience (school violence, stress, anxiety, self-esteem, gender identity, bullying, etc.).  Although my primary service is therapy - I also provide parenting support for those looking to improve communication and connection with their family.

I offer a highly personalized, tailored approach for each and every client.  My goal is to help you reach your goals - and I believe that we can make that happen together.

Theoretical Perspective...
