More about me

Licensing: MSW, LCSW
Years in Practice: 20


Welcome to the BetterHelp community! My name is Lisa McCarton and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, practicing in Virginia for 20 years. I have specialized in psychotherapy and social work with children, adolescents and families. I have been providing psychotherapy for a wide variety of issues and populations, to include: behavioral problems; trauma issues; family relationships; mood disorders; school issues; and sexual abuse issues, among other areas. I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University in 2000 with a Masters in Social Work. I began my post-masters clinical work in a residential treatment facility for emotionally and physically abused children. I provided therapy, as well as case management, for children and families.

I would describe my approach as goal oriented, and client centered. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Problem-Solving Therapy and Strength-Based Approach. All of these modalities are hands-on, practical approaches to problem-solving. CBT treatment usually involves efforts to change thinking patterns and/or behaviors. The goals are to change patterns of maladaptive or unhealthy thinking in order to improve behavior and life situations. This helps people identify faulty or unhelpful ways of thinking and learn better ways of coping with life's full variety of stressors.

Difficult and painful times are part of the human experience. I understand seeking help can be a vulnerable step to take. Exploring the healing process or enriching one’s personal growth, first and foremost, requires establishing a trusting and an emotional supportive relationship. Change is not easy, but it is possible.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Lisa has been there for me through a lot of issues, from personal to professional. Life can throw a lot of things at us and no matter how big or small, she has been able to help me with coping techniques and methods so I can take back control of my life.

Idk how y’all matched me so perfect with a therapist I both admire and respect. In the short time we’ve interacted, she’s helped me through significant issues and offered multiple modalities to work towards building a better me. I’m very grateful for her and look forward to continuing with her as my therapist on a weekly basis.

A.M.·May 14, 2022


I could not recommend Lisa more. She helped me work through one of the toughest times of my life to a point where I've never happier and more confident in myself. She was always there when I needed and was a great resource throughout the whole process. I will miss catching up with her on a regular basis.

J.A.·May 10, 2022


She has helped me come a long way with my mental health. I wouldn't be doing as well as I am without her. She was awesome for me!

N.A.·Mar 06, 2022


Lisa has done a tremendous job helping me deal with my stress and overcoming negative thinking. I look forward to the sessions we have and the feedback she provides.

R.O.·Feb 24, 2022


I found Lisa to be very helpful. She gave me some new insight and aloud me to look at my situation from a different prospective. I found the most helpful thing she gave me was the concept of self care. Our lives get so busy that we just forget to take care of ourselves. It was something that i needed greatly. Thank you Lisa.

K.E.·Feb 17, 2022


Lisa has been wonderful to work with. She is very easy to talk to and I have been comfortable discussing the issues for which I have sought assistance. We have very productive and engaging sessions that have helped me immensely.

D.A.·Jan 19, 2022


This was my first interaction with a therapist but Lisa is so easy to talk to, she made it less intimidating. She recognized when I was feeling off and always ended the session on a good note. She helped me realize some things about my self and sent a lot of useful resources through the app to help me reflect after our sessions. I’d definitely recommend her to my friends!

K.E.·Jan 04, 2022


Lisa is great. She’s very insightful and helped me gain tools necessary to handle my issue.

S.J.·Jan 03, 2022


Lisa is so easy to talk to. She does a good job of responding quickly, listening, offering advice, providing helpful worksheets/resources, and coming up with a plan to resolve issues. I’ve never felt judged.

A.M.·Dec 29, 2021


Lisa is thoughtful and kind. She has helped me find areas where I can be the same and ways to practice being my best self.

S.E.·Dec 19, 2021


Lisa has been a great therapist. I feel very comfortable talking to her and she is always very knowledgable, supportive, understanding and nonjudgmental. She is helping me work through depression and anxiety. She really listens to what I have to say about it and provides thoughtful feedback and useful strategies. I would definitely recommend her to anyone dealing with the same issues.

R.Y.·Nov 16, 2021


I have never been to a therapist before and as a first experience she has been absolutely wonderful. Its not easy to face long buried issues, but I wanted to face them so they would stop impacting my life the way they do. Its most likely going to be a long road but its a comfort to have Lisa help me to my mental health goals.

J.E.·Nov 06, 2021


Lisa is very kind, and patient. She stays extremely connected. I feel comfortable reaching out to her between sessions. I’ve been extremely happy to work with her.

J.A.·Oct 27, 2021


As the child of a rough divorce and custody battle, I've had to see a handful of therapists in my life; both privately and court appointed. Most of the time I felt as thought I was being talked down to and my feelings were never validated. I was just a patient whom they could check the boxes. Lisa is one of only 2 therapists I've met in my life that doesn't make me feel like I'm just talking to a wall. She engages with me, gives feedback and ways to work on issues, and genuinely takes the time to listen, assess, and provide help.

K.E.·Oct 13, 2021


She has been very helpful and caring and I havw not even got to meet with her yet! I look forward to it

K.E.·Oct 12, 2021


I have had two sessions with Lisa. Both were helpful in sorting out what I’m trying to address. She listens well and has helped me get my head around the challenges I’m facing.

B.I.·Oct 04, 2021


Lisa definitely provides a space for her clients to share and address the issues leading them to therapy. She is attentive and engaged. She provides insight and I appreciate the assignments to help me focus on my healing.

S.J.·Oct 01, 2021


Lisa has been good at listening and providing unbiased observations of scenarios I have described. While we have only had two sessions, I feel confident she will provide the guidance I need.

C.L.·Sep 30, 2021


Lisa has been a great help, she's great at listening and makes you feel appreciated. She tries hard to understand how you're feeling and helps to work with you on what to do next.

J.A.·Sep 15, 2021


I truly look forward to my sessions with Lisa. She makes me feel very comfortable and is just easy to talk to.

R.Y.·Sep 01, 2021


Lisa is an amazing therapist. I recently lost my grandfather and had an incomplete grieving process. Lisa has been able to help me sort through my feelings and emotions and has coached me through my mourning. The exercises and tools she gave me have helped me implement real, lasting change into my life.

C.H.·Aug 22, 2021


Lisa is great and caring. She takes time to build trust and to understand what is going on before providing feedback. I’ve enjoyed learning about myself and how I can be the best version of myself.

S.E.·Aug 09, 2021


Lisa is exceptional! She is an active listener and holds space for me to share my feelings openly without judgment. We have worked together for a month so far and she has already helped me a great deal. She really takes the time to get to know you, your goals and what you would like to work on with her. I highly recommend Lisa :)

I'm very impressed with Lisa, she's kind, intelligent and very understanding to many different circumstances as well as being easy to relate to.

J.A.·May 17, 2021


Lisa is a great person to talk to and always strives to understand where exactly I’m coming from and where I want to go. I feel extremely comfortable talking to her and she’s always willing to support which Avenue I want to take.

W.Y.·Apr 16, 2021


I am so happy to have Lisa as my counselor. She is so awesome and very understanding. I feel like I am in a judgement free zone and she makes me feel comfortable about sharing my feelings. She always on time and always gives her full attention when we are talking. I am so thankful that Better Help chose her for me, they did an awesome job with matching me with a counselor that would understand what I am going through. I highly recommend Lisa!!

Doc has been a real help to me in what I consider one of the darkest times in my life. She really cares about me, she doesn't see me as a bunch of problems or a statistic, she sees me as a person. She's one of the most compassionate and empathic people I've ever met, she's firm when she needs to be and extremely helpful. She has provided me with necessary tool to cope with my situatuon. She pays attention to my needs, checks up on me and makes sure I'm ok. I would strongly recommend Doc Lisa to anyone that is in need of someone that could guide them through a journey of change, she's been excellent so far and with her help, I feel I'll make it through my journey.

D.A.·Feb 18, 2021


Lisa is amazing, in the few weeks we've worked together she's been a great help and I really look forward to continuing our sessions. She's a great person and very easy to open up to.

I.S.·Feb 03, 2021


I have had a great experience with Lisa so far. She’s been open, receptive and accommodating to me and what I’m trying to accomplish for myself personally through therapy. She makes me feel very comfortable, calm and relaxed when it comes to discussing and talking to her about my personal life. This has been a great therapy experience for me after being hesitant to step back into therapy after many years. I would absolutely recommend her to others. I genuinely feel like she cares about me and her role.

H.O.·Jan 28, 2021


I am so grateful to have been paired with Lisa Mccarton. She listens and truly dedicates herself to her patients. She constantly makes sure I’m comfortable with her and the work that we are doing. She works with you to figure out your goals and then provides you with the tools to reach them. She's not afraid to ask you the tough questions and get to the root of your problems. She has really cared about my success and advancement and as someone in ED recovery, I appreciate the insight she offers. Recovery isn’t what I’m in therapy for now, but she always makes a point of checking in with me to make sure I’m still on the right track. She’s an amazing woman and therapist and I’m happy to be working with her.

C.H.·Jan 20, 2021


She is a very beautiful human. This is the first I see a counselor that actually care about my well-being, and truly wants to support me. When you talk with her she gives you her full intention and try various ways to help you cope with the condition you have
