    Lisa Clement-DeFalco, PMHNP-BC

    Lisa Clement-DeFalco, RN, BSN, MA, MSN, PMHNP-BC, is a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner offering services to residents in Virginia. She has a vast array of clinical interests; however, her specializations are psychotic disorders, bipolar disorder and depression. In her practice, Lisa believes that everyone deserves to have a partner in their care. Individuals should expect to be heard and met with respect and truthful options to receive the most robust relief of symptoms as possible. She believes that the minimum use of medication should used to meet needs. Additionally, she feels that individuals are equally responsible for their outcomes and that adherence to treatment, managing risk factors and reporting aberrant responses are within their realm of control. 

    Lisa’s interest in mental health care started during her role as a special needs preschool teacher and she developed a passion for family based intervention. She went on to earn a master’s degree in counseling and practiced for more than a decade. Then, during the Massachusetts medical reform, she decided to go into nursing to ensure she could continue to intervene with her clients and meet their medical needs.

    Lisa has been a dedicated Boy Scout leader for seven years and she is facilitating the process in her region to grow from Boy Scouts to Family Scouts! She also has a 2nd degree black belt in taekwondo and is the Virginia state champion in sparring.
