Lisa Annan, PhD, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Are you a parent with a child on the autism spectrum and need support and guidance in parenting and decision-making?

Are you a couple who feels stuck in your relationship and need new tools and skills to resolve your issues more peacefully?

Do you have a child struggling with behavioral or emotional issues and you feel overwhelmed and confused about what approaches will work?

I have a PhD in Psychology and am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 15 years of experience helping children ages 4+, teenagers, adults and couples.

My clients come to me with a large range of concerns including:

  • Depression
  • Postpartum issues
  • Anxiety
  • Autism spectrum
  • Grief
  • Relationship/marriage/couples struggles
  • Career
  • Self-esteem
  • Childhood behavioral/emotional issues

My counseling style is warm, respectful, compassionate, interactive, and insightful. I believe in a team approach and together we will focus on successfully meeting your goals and specific needs.

I graduated from The University of North Carolina with a Bachelors in Psychology, have a Masters degree in Counseling and a Ph.D. in Psychology.

In addition to my time at the Center, I also work in the Emergency Room and ICU in Mount Pleasant assessing patients with issues concerning substance abuse, suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety.

I am not in-network with any insurance companies. Therefore, clients pay my full fee up front and our office will submit the claim to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. Our administrative staff can check your out-of-network benefits before you start therapy to see what the coverage would be for our sessions. Many clients also choose to use HSA or FSA cards to cover the session cost.

If you have questions or are ready to begin counseling, contact us today.  Our friendly administrative staff will get you scheduled for your first appointment comfortably and confidentially.  Don’t continue to feel alone in your struggles, we are here to help.


With their permission, here are some experiences of former clients…

Dr. Annan provided insights and guidance that will help me address my situation. Much appreciated.

Dr. Annan was very easy to talk to and listened to our concerns and reasons for seeking counseling. It was only our first visit, but my husband and I both felt we found someone who could help us.

Lisa asks me about progress of things mentioned in previous sessions and I’m able to see the improvement on how I viewed and tackled those issues.
