Lise trained as an actress at the University of California, San Diego and with her Los Angeles based acting coach, Billy Cowart. Her MA in Psychology has given her the ability as an actress to bring depth and complexity to each role she takes on. Lise recently played a woman down on her luck who rises above adversity in the short, Twenty Words. She loves characters rich in intelligence and contradictions. In addition to her acting, Lise is in demand as a writer, and has regularly contributed to a number of blogs and academic publications, including The Arts in Psychotherapy. Her book, Own Your Life: How Our Wounds Become Our Gifts is now available on Amazon. For more information, see the author tab or click here.
