I received my Master of Arts in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Chapman University, I am a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have been practicing across San Diego County since 2011. I've trained with Healing Beyond Borders in Healing Touch and Emotional Freedom Techniques with the EFT Tapping Training Institute. I have vast experience with working with adults, veterans, first responders, health care professionals, adult students, active-duty personnel, and chronic pain populations.
I specialize in the provision of holistic and evidence-based treatments for acute stress to chronic anxiety, depression, obsessive thinking, grief and loss, trauma recovery to complex posttraumatic stress disorder.
My approach is direct, relational, somatic, and integrative with a trauma recovery lens. I am happy to support people in shifting through toxic stress, dysfunctional relationship patterns, deepening interpersonal connection, and becoming more authentically themselves.
Lisa McJunkin's Mission
My mission is to help people and businesses feel balanced, shift unhelpful patterns, heal past traumas, address phase of life concerns, and be more present with ourselves and with our chosen tribe.
I offer individual and couples therapy, group classes, holistic coaching and clinical consulting, by using Eastern and Western healing techniques to allow for the mind, body, and soul realignment.
I look forward to working with you on your journey of living fully.
“Life is from the inside out. When you shift on the inside, life shifts on the outside.”
I work with families, children, individuals, and partnerships to provide a safe space for people to truly look at their experiences and move through blocks. I engage a unique approach that combines elements of talk therapy with holistic healing modalities to address your specific goals and areas of concern. Whether it is your first time seeking help, or you have been in therapy before, my approach can help aid you in the following: decrease stress and the feeling of being overwhelmed, relief from physical and emotional pain, shift depression states, address phase of life demands, heal trauma, improve communication and strengthen relationship connections, and gain confidence in your self-healing abilities.
Healing Touch is an evidence-based, relaxing, nurturing, and heart-centered energy therapy that uses light or no touch with intention to assist in balancing your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing. Healing Touch assists in creating a coherent and balanced energy field, supporting one’s inherent ability to heal. It is safe for all ages and may be integrated with standard medical and behavioral health care.
Healing Touch is beneficial in calming anxiety and reducing symptoms of depression, decreasing pain, strengthening the immune system, enhancing recovery from surgery, complementing care for neck and spine problems, deepening spiritual connection, supporting cancer care, creating a sense of well-being, and easing acute and chronic conditions.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is a self-help method that involves using the fingers to gently tap on the body's acupressure points along the meridian lines of Chinese medicine. It is often referred to as ‘Tapping’. The therapeutic effects of this technique have been recognized globally. EFT Tapping helps us tune in to the negative patterns that we form around our uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, or troubling memories. We ‘tap’ on the correct pressure points while bringing the thoughts or emotions into consciousness. The aim is to find relief, relaxation, and promote healing around the emotional or physical issues that hold us back. One can use EFT tapping for anxiety, compulsive thoughts, weight loss concerns, pain, stress and many other issues. (Adapted from EFT International)
