DR. LISA BENTON, PSY.D.
Hello! I am Dr. Lisa Benton, and I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist. My areas of expertise are Health and Performance. I specialize in helping people perform better in life, sports, and academics through empirically based solutions and testing.
Depression, anxiety, chronic stress, and psychological distress all interfere with physical health. I help people improve emotional health and negative behaviors which interfere with physical health in the interest of improving overall wellness. This might include cognitive behavioral therapy, biofeedback, behavioral modification, or a variety of these approaches.
Are you worried about your child in school? I offer psychoeducational testing to help empower you with detailed information about your child's learning strengths and weaknesses. Learning can improve quickly when we have the right information.
Are you an athlete looking to improve your performance? Most athletes can benefit from cognitive performance training and biofeedback practice. Physically training without addressing the cognitive components of performance is an incomplete training program. I help athletes gain a competitive edge on and off the field.
My office is located in beautiful Colorado Springs, and I am licensed in the states of Colorado and Florida. I offer remote services through a HIPAA approved platform to clients in both states. Feel free to peruse this website to learn more about my services. You can find me on Instagram @DrLisaBenton for mini blogs and sound bites to learn more about my work. I look forward to hearing from you!

Helping Students and Athletes Thrive
I decided to become a Psychologist when I was 12 years old. After graduating from Wofford College (go Terriers), I went on to complete my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Health at Nova Southeastern University in 2003. Now, I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist with a passion for helping children, adolescents, and teens achieve academic and athletic success.
As a mother, I understand what it feels like to worry about your child's academic performance. I am dedicated to gathering accurate information in a positive environment with the intention of helping your child feel empowered and encouraged in the classroom.
Learning disorders, attention problems, behavioral disturbances, anxiety, and even undiagnosed sensory problems can all interfere with learning. Psycho-educational testing is designed to accurately identify the reasons for learning problems and clarify strategies to optimize your child’s academic and athletic achievement.
Whether your child needs testing for learning difficulties or gifted class placement, I offer modern testing approaches in a positive environment designed to set your child up for success.
