"I've always been an empath. As a child growing up in Philadelphia, I had a big heart and cared for others. I loved being successful at solving others’ challenges. However, there was one seemingly insolvable crisis that deeply impacted me. My best friend suffered greatly from an eating disorder starting in her early teens and persisting even after college. I needed to understand her condition to support her. I attended the University of Miami, majoring in English and writing for various publications. My ambition was to write an advice column with shared input modeled after the 'Ask Alice' feature. The psychology field never appeared on my radar until my mother pointed out that I always wrote about psychology-based topics and encouraged me to explore the field. I enjoyed some psychology courses and went on to earn a Masters Degree in Psychology at the @univmiami. My experiences interning at a drug and alcohol clinic, a hospital, and a mental health facility confirmed my career decision and I overcame any nervousness I felt from the gravity of the illnesses confronting me professionally and the closeness of my friend’s struggles. After experiencing a life altering event, I took charge of my career and commenced my private practice, Therapy for Success. Today my practice has expanded dramatically with several other therapists joining our team. Our patients deal with, among other pathologies, eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, obesity and other food, weight, and exercise issues. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, my greatest satisfaction is traveling the successful journey with my patients to the 'other side.' Patients tell me that it's a privilege to have me in their lives; I disagree. The privilege is all mine." -Lisa S. @lisajillsimon, Owner & Licensed Professional Counselor, Therapy for Success (Philadelphia, PA) . .
