Testimonials for Dr. Lisa Kaplin, PsyD

I’m happy to share what some of clients have written about me, my classes and my coaching sessions.

“Lisa [is] an incredible source of wisdom and support to me on my journey.”

“I sought Lisa’s guidance during a very transitional period in my life. At the time, I was recently divorced, heading back to work, learning to be a single parent, reentering the dating world and generally feeling overwhelmed and anxious. I found Lisa to be a reassuring, intelligent, witty and, above all, empowering coach. Lisa offered me an insightful and objective perspective on my situation. Lisa showed me tools and techniques to use during challenging times. Lisa enabled me to recognize my destructive inner voice and to change the damaging internal messages I was sending myself. Lisa helped me to visualize the life I desired, and to identify specific personal and professional goals that would allow me to start living that life. She guided me through the creation of achievable action plans and encouraged me to move forward. Lisa has been and continues to be an incredible source of wisdom and support to me on my journey.” —N.K.


“The contentment and confidence I felt after working with Lisa was extraordinary.”

“I had tried traditional counseling too many times to count throughout my life, with no real results. Lisa came into my life as I was entering the ‘in between’ phase of motherhood. I had lost my true self in the day to day duties of wife, mother of three, and consumate volunteer. I wasn’t happy and was so frustrated that I couldn’t truly feel happy no matter how hard I tried. With Lisa’s genuine, affirming, yet no-nonsense approach I slowly got to the root of my unhappiness and how negative mindset and energy were keeping me in the ‘doom loop.’ Lisa’s willingness to share her own experiences and the practical strategies in her coaching model helped me reclaim the strong woman that I had always been. The contentment and confidence I felt after working with Lisa was extraordinary, and grew exponentially. I now have the tools to live confidently with a positive mindset and a contentment that I had been searching for. I can’t thank Lisa enough for having truly changed my life.” —Maria


“Working with Lisa has been life changing for me.”

“Lisa helped me during a period of my life that was filled with insurmountable problems. Lisa was compassionate and patient but also truthful enough with me when I needed to look deeper. Lisa kept me accountable for my progress during a time in which I needed to take action to improve the quality of my life. I would never have been able to get from the lowest point of my life to the highest point in my life without Lisa’s help. I am enjoying the rewards and the benefits of the hard work that I did with Lisa each and every day and can not say enough about how lucky I have been to have Lisa in my life.” —S.J.


“Lisa … helped me maintain perspective, feel supported .”

“Divorce is a very difficult and complex process no matter which party began the proceedings. It is a minefield of emotions that fluctuate daily. Lisa Kaplin’s ‘Never get divorced again’ group helped me maintain perspective, feel supported and work through some concepts to prevent me from ever falling into this place again. At least I hope not to be. I looked forward to our sessions each week due to Lisa’s facilitation as well the group’s support. Our friends and families really don’t want to hear our stories on a daily basis and it is wonderful to be with people who understand where you are and why you are there.”  —Elizabeth


“My experience in Lisa’s group has made an impact on my life that I will be forever grateful for.”

“I thank my lucky stars that I was referred to Lisa for purposes of helping me gain the courage and strength to face my challenges associated with my separation/divorce.  I learned so much about myself.  From the questions Lisa would pose, and through the exercises we were asked to do.  I honestly had no idea how much I needed Lisa’s expertise.  I will carry the learnings throughout the rest of my life and feel that I have become so much stronger, more confident, and much better equipped to get the things in life that will make me happy.  The major bonus to being in the group was meeting five of the most amazing women.  We went from strangers to confidants in no time at all.  My experience in Lisa’s group has made an impact on my life that I will be forever grateful for.”  —Sharyl


“Lisa gave me the strength to recognize there were many ways to cope with my stress.”

“I found myself overwhelmed by life’s moments which I felt I had little control over. Lisa gave me the strength to recognize there were many ways to cope with my stress. In doing so, I managed to use specific tools to help me make changes in my life that have now opened up a lifetime of happiness, stress free living, and enjoyment. Without Lisa, I wouldn’t be where I am today, living each and every moment to its fullest. I am truly grateful for the time I spent with her, and the positive impact it has made in my life.” —Amy L.


“She digs deep to help you discover how to live an empowered life.”

“Face it. Nobody is really comfortable with change. We’ve all been there –wanting to change things up, yet letting life go on in the same way, leaving us disconnected passionless. What kind of life is that, really? That’s where Lisa steps in with her unique coaching style. She digs deep to help you discover how to live an empowered life, a life where there are no limits. Her intelligence, experience, intuition and wonderful sense of humor work together in a magical way that will have you looking at your life and wondering ‘why did I wait so long!’

I absolutely recommend Lisa for any woman seeking to feel more confident and empowered in her life! Questioning, using her intuitive and deep listening skills, she will challenge the thoughts that keep you from exploring outside of your comfort zone. With Lisa, you’ll feel confident about stepping out of your old, boring comfort zone so that you can step into the new and exciting life that you’ve dreamed of.” —Denise Fountain, Confident Moms | Confident Kids

“She has such a comfortable, sincere way about coaching”

“I was hesitant to go to Lisa’s first ‘divorce group; only because I didn’t want to have another meeting to attend, and I can’t believe I almost didn’t go! This was nothing like a meeting, it was like a group of girlfriends, on a path with a wonderful guide. Lisa is a phenomenal coach, she taught me so many things about myself and life in 7 weeks that I keep imparting to my kids, friends, and family. It really changed me. She has such a comfortable, sincere way about coaching that I felt like a sponge, I wanted to soak up as much as I could. I am excited to take the tools that I learned from Lisa with me through the rest of life’s journey.” —Lori

“Dig deep into your default mode, release the Gremlins and change your story”

“Lisa’s ‘Never Get Divorced Again’ group was a life changing experience. I went to this class not knowing what to expect. In the course of 7 weeks, I learned that I was not ‘stuck’ in my 27 year marriage for life, gained some self-respect and confidence and finally learned that I can be ‘happy in this life!’ Through Lisa’s positive, nurturing and firm, when necessary, process…I proceeded with a long overdue divorce, moved out and purchased a townhome (which I lovingly call my ‘house of Peace’), stood strong and persevered with confidence when I was faced with adversity and made lifelong friendships with the amazing group of 5 women in my class. Lisa’s approach will force you to dig deep into your default mode, release the Gremlins and change your story. This process can be life changing, if you allow Lisa’s gentle guidance aide you in deep reflection and allow yourself to be happy. I looked forward to meeting with my group each week. We affectionately refer to ourselves as ‘Lisa’s Ladies!’) I discovered that, even though each of our stories were different…we all had commonalities and could understand, relate and support each other freely, without judgment. I’m forever grateful to Lisa and my group of kind, caring and incredibly, strong women for helping me shape my life for a happier future.  —Cindy
