About Lisa

Lisa Lieberman, MSW, LCSW is a skilled trainer, engaging speaker and writer with over 30 years of professional experience. She received her Masters of Social Work in 1977 from San Diego State University. Lisa travels nationally to present about issues related to "living with disability in the family." She is the author of numerous articles and a well-received book, A Stranger Among Us: Hiring In-home Support When a Child has ASD or other Neurological Differences, AAPC, ©2005.

Lisa also enjoys her work counseling adults in a private psychotherapy practice in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Some of her professional interests include: helping families manage the emotional journey of parenting children with differences; respectful counseling for adults with autism spectrum differences (ASD); supporting families to see the gifts in the challenge of having a family member with disabilities; and promoting self-determination and community inclusion for people with disabilities.

She has been married since 1979 to a man with an advanced case of multiple sclerosis. Together they parent Jordan, a delightful young adult with autism. For the past 3 years, Lisa has had the pleasure of co-presenting at a national conference with Jordan on a variety of topics. They are planning to write a book together in the near future.

In addition to Jordan, Lisa and her husband, Craig Ackerson, have two adult children and two incredible grandchildren, Isabella and Jack. In her spare time, Lisa enjoys singing and playing guitar, reading, walking, and spending time with dear friends and family.
