Lisa Sorce, LCSW
Lisa Sorce, LCSW is a clinical psychotherapist, intuitive artist, consciousness teacher and award-winning dream artist who draws upon her personal process and professional training in a variety of mind/body/spirit modalities, indigenous ceremony, dream work and expressive arts. Her services are eclectic and holistic in approach. Lisa’s focus is spiritual with a deep emphasis on living with intentionality and awareness.
Although a practicing psychotherapist since 2002, Lisa’s service as a compassionate listener and an encouraging guide to others began decades prior. Finding herself in this role time and time again in both personal and professional arenas eventually led her to a vocation in which her passions and abilities could be expressed more fully. In 2005, Lisa founded Whispers from the Moon Studio just west of Chicago in the Oak Park Arts District. As owner and creative director of this soul seekers’ haven for more than 15 years, Lisa designed and facilitated over a thousand Art for the Heart & Soul classes, creativity workshops, women’s circles, dream groups and community events. These experiential offerings were steeped in magical, ancient traditions and concepts that became the bedrock of Lisa’s contributions in bringing transformation and beauty into the world. She is committed and passionate about inspiring others to do the same.
Lisa’s training and experience incorporate both traditional and non-traditional tools and ideologies. This weaving of Lisa’s natural abilities and clinical foundation with archetypal psychology and a discerning collection of universal, time-honored healing modalities offers an integrated path for those who seek her counsel. Operating from the belief that each person is unique and own best authority, Lisa acts as a personal witness and companion on the healing journey and sessions are tailored to meet each individual “where they are” in the gentlest, most supportive manner. In the safety of this therapeutic partnership, a deeper and fuller understanding of self develops.
Most sessions generally 60 minutes in length are meant to open a door to new life and offer awareness and, ultimately, freedom from stuck places and inherited/taught, imposed ideas and beliefs that are painful or no longer useful. In embracing wholeness by welcoming back forgotten/disowned/abandoned selves, healing can be realized and balance restored. In order to get lasting results, issues are addressed holistically – the mind (thoughts), the heart (emotions), and the body (instinct) need to work together. In addition to many traditional clinical tools, and depending on the needs and interests of the person, additional options offered during a session may include:
~ experiential mind, body and cross-cultural healing modalities
~ creative visualization and dream analysis practices
~ art and movement therapies
~ mindfulness and meditation exercises
~ excavation, telling and re-writing of life circumstances and stories
~ self/parts work (Voice Dialogue/Jungian therapies)
As Lisa acknowledged her 15th year in private practice in June 2019, she recognized that her dedication and hunger for heartfelt consciousness work, archetypal wisdom gathering, and soul-level connection to others remains strong and true. She is expanding her reach with the recent re-imagining of Whispers from the Moon and the launch of a new venture designed to bring intentionality and beauty more fully into the mainstream arena.
