Lizanne Chisholm, LPC, NCC
Licensed Professional Counselor
National Certified Counselor
My approach to helping others is joining them in their life’s journey and sharing their experiences. My clients range from adolescents to those nearing end-of-life. The one constant in life is change. Loss touches everyone. Regardless of age, we each try to find the resilience within us to address the changes in life. Working in the field of trauma, grief and loss has given me deeper insights about living life. Loss of all kind gives us an invitation to understand life differently as we are faced with changes poised to challenge the very meaning of what we knew life to be.
We do not quit playing because we grow old. We grow old because we quit playing. Oliver Wendell Holmes
My professional roles include: Clinical Coordinator with SandCastles Grief Support Program, a division of Hospice of Henry Ford Health System, bereavement aftercare counselor for the Pixley Funeral Home in Rochester as well as doing clinical work in a private practice for over 12 years. My knowledge includes almost 20 years of working with group experiences and experiential therapies in a variety of clinical settings. I have presented locally and nationally on grief and loss. My continued education involves life’s lessons offered each day I choose to be present to the moment. Nature and God’s universe are my guides. I continue to be reminded of the magnificent presence of God in everything and every moment I put my faith in Him as He companions with me and witnesses my life story.
