Speaking event in Northern Virginia!

Hey Northern Virginia/DC people!

I’ll be doing a public event tomorrow night and I’d love to see you there!

May 10th, 7 pm to 9 pm in Clifton, VA. And I heard there might even be wine…

The talk will be about the things that most of us are afraid to talk about – anxiety and depression. I’ll share my experiences with those issues and the ways that they have impacted my life. I’ll talk about my time working as an actor, and the decisions that led to leaving my career to find something that felt more authentic. We’ll look at the causes of anxiety, the latest research on what helps those of us who struggle and we’ll laugh a lot –because if we can’t laugh at our anxiety, we really are screwed.

We’ll have plenty of time for Q&A and I’ll have my memoir You Look Like That Girl for purchase and signing.

Please purchase tickets through this link – I’ll see you there!

  1. We are soooo looking forward to your visit! It’s going to be such an amazing evening! Your visit means so much to our community and I am so grateful for your willingness to come to Clifton! 😘😘😘

  2. Hi Lisa, so glad to hear you are doing great! Hey I was reading on your blog about anxiety and it caught my attention. See I have a 7 going on 8 year old daughter who recently started having “anxiety attacks” at school. She has always been a very calm, shy girl who loves to read and is an A student. Now I have her teacher, the school nurse, and the counselor calling me with concerns. How can I know for sure if they are anxiety attacks? Should I be worried?? : /

    1. Hi Nelly! I’m glad you found me, too. Don’t worry, but do get her some support. Talk to your daughter to understand her take on what is going on, and get her an appointment with your family doctor. He/she can make sure there is not a physical issue going on. Then you can go from there. There are SO MANY things that can help her. I have a list of my favorite books on anxiety here – https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/7584690?shelf=for-anxiety&utm_campaign=mybooksnav&utm_content=mybooks_cta&utm_medium=web&utm_source=homepage and my new book is all about anxiety, depression and panic attacks. It will be out this fall, and it’s a passion project for sure.
      I hope those help, and let me know how things go!

      1. Thanks Lisa! Can’t wait for your book to be out, I am looking forward to reading it and learning more on helping my daughter Nina out with her anxiety. BTW, I finally joined yoga and I’m loving it…namaste! 🙂
