Lisa Herman, LP, PsyD

I am a doctor of psychology and licensed psychologist, specializing in child and teen psychology, and a consultant for a grant-funded substance abuse program at the University of Minnesota Department of Psychiatry.

Best part of my work: The moment(s) when a patient realizes that they made progress!

Why I became a ­­­­­­psychologist: I always found myself glued to the TV when the psychologist was on a talk show. Helping others has been a passion for me since I was in high school.

What I tell my friends and family: Focus on “what is” and find the positive in any situation.

What patients say about me: I smile a lot and that people feel comfortable opening up during therapy.
