Ms. Lisa Bahar

Marriage & Family Therapist , MA , CCJP, LMFT , LPCC

(949) 212-2081
I enjoy working with individuals, couples, groups and families. My treatment approach is to provide support and insight to help clients address current life challenges and long standing issues. I use DBT as a primary intervention and skills training for those clients seeking solutions for issues related to emotional regulation, interpersonal communication breakdowns and difficulties in managing stress and personal balance. In addition to being a DBT Therapist, I am also a Cinema Therapist and provide groups that use film stories as a metaphorical approach to creating group process.
DBT Skills Training provides clients "How" skills to deal with issues including emotionally reactive behaviors, inability to express feelings, difficulties in managing stress and ability to self calm and in gentle and mindful way. Cinema Therapy is engages film stories to guide the process of healing in a metaphorical way.
I am best known as DBT Therapist and also as a creative therapist particularly with the use of Cinema-Therapy.
