Annalisa Blackham is a LCSW Therapist who received her Bachelors and Masters degrees in Social Work. She has a passion for working with individuals to help them understand more about themselves and their needs and help them feel empowered to reach future goals, hopes, and dreams. Annalisa is originally from Las Vegas, NV and through volunteering in her community was able to see how, with good support, that individuals can feel empowered to affect their lives. Her experiences shaped her wanting to be that source of support for individuals in their personal journeys, which led to her career choice in mental/behavioral health. She has trainings in various types of therapy and believes that therapy is most beneficial when an individual feels a sense of partnership and ownership of their process. When not working, Annalisa still engages in volunteer work in her community – developing leadership skills with teens, enjoys reading and hiking, enjoys spending time with friends and her family – especially her two nieces, and loves to travel to new places stateside and internationally when she can.
