Dr. Lisa Templeton grew up in Dearborn, Michigan, a town just outside of Detroit. She has been teaching, lecturing, and doing therapy since 2003, when she finished her doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in San Francisco. Since then she has taught as an adjunct professor at Naropa University, Denver Metro University, and Colorado Christian University. She also has offered workshops and seminars to medical doctors, police officers, therapists, and other health professionals on mindfulness and relationships. Her focus is on mindfulness cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, creative, and spiritual psychotherapies with the use of a holistic approach, incorporating the mind, body, and spirit into treatment.
In 2010, Dr. Lisa founded The Interpersonal Healing Center, LLC, a mindfulness based cognitive-behavioral therapy focused clinic with a team of beautiful professionals providing therapy to heal relations with others, as well as with self. Offering individual, family, and couples therapy to children, adolescents, and adults.
Dr. Lisa uses music and poetry/songwriting as a means of healing for herself and for others she guides and nurtures. This creative outlet has been helpful for herself as she moves through the difficulties of life and learning to let it be.
Dr. Lisa is also the co-director/dreamer of ShamanStar, a spiritual organization practicing a heart-based, modern approach to the ancient path of shamanism. This is a path of empowerment through the use of sacred teachings, meditation, art, ceremony, and connection within our community. This path focuses on mindful, compassionate self discovery, and joyful service for the highest good of all.
