Dr. Lisa Black


Dr. Black (she/her) is alumnus of Alliant International University, San Diego, where she earned her doctorate in clinical psychology with a specialization in integrative psychology. She is a licensed clinical psychologist and board certified in biofeedback (BCB) and neurofeedback (BCN) with additional specialty in ketamine assisted psychotherapy. 

She completed her post-doctoral training at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). She is one of UCSD’s Frontiers of Innovation Scholars Program (FISP) grantees, which offered grant support for her pioneering work to develop and implement neurofeedback services into UCSD Health’s family medicine program.

Continuing her work at UCSD, she was lead therapist for biofeedback and neurofeedback services and psychologist for UCSD Health’s sports medicine concussion clinic.

Her core practice is integrative, whole person health body, mind, spirit, and community. She is part neuroscientist and part alternative medicine. She recognizes the importance of evidence based practice, and often practices through that lens, but understands that there is wisdom in traditional medicine and that practicing them together can create synergy. 

Dr. Black’s therapeutic approach focuses on the therapeutic relationship. She is a very warm and accepting individual but won’t hesitate to help motivate change when needed. She celebrates all backgrounds, cultures, and spiritual perspectives. She takes special care not to assume what is “right” for any individual, instead she works with the patient and patient’s care team to collaboratively decide what work can be done together to increase thriving. 

In addition to her work as a therapist, Dr. Black teaches at a community college and mentors psychology interns on their way to licensure. Dr. Black works with her co-therapist, Lexi (beloved dog), to help in the healing process. In her spare time you will find her gardening, hiking, and having fun with Lexi.
