Dr. Lisa Wolff is both a licensed clinical psychologist and school psychologist with more than 25 years of experience in clinical and school settings. She received her Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from the University of Denver and completed her internship at The Children’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado. Dr. Wolff has received advanced training in the Collaborative Problem Solving approach developed by Dr. Ross Greene and has instructed parents and educators throughout the state of Colorado in the implementation of this approach for working with youth with challenging behaviors.
Dr. Wolff believes in a collaborative, strength-based, and solution-focused approach to helping children and parents manage the challenges life throws their way. Her work with families is grounded in her belief that children and parents want to do their best and that any parent’s deepest desire is to see their child succeed. Through a cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness lens, Dr. Wolff’s goal is to help children work through challenging emotions, develop better self-regulation in moments of distress, improve their self-esteem, and feel more connected in their relationships with family, peers and caregivers. She uses a combination of psycho-education, collaborative problem-solving conversations, and positive parenting approaches to help parents solve difficult behavioral challenges with their child.
Dr. Wolff is a wise, compassionate, and enthusiastic practitioner who uses a creative and interactive approach with her clients. Her goal is to provide a safe and nonjudgmental space in which parents are able to reflect on their parenting, and children are able to manage their hopes and fears as they move through the stages of childhood.
Dr. Wolff is currently serving as a lecturer at the University of Colorado – Denver teaching a graduate level class in School and Family Interventions to school psychology doctoral students. She recently retired from work in the public schools in order to continue more individualized support of families within her private practice.
