Rehabilitation Specialist, Teacher, Doctoral Candidate

Lisa Dennis, Msc

With 20 years experience as a rehabilitation specialist matched with her personal struggles with her own brain-based disorders, she is driven to find interventions to help heal brains.
 
She has worked with a diverse clientele in four provinces offering culturally competent and holistic services to people of all walks of life.  From community home-care in Quebec and Ontario with the adult and geriatric population with physical disabilities, to working in northern Labrador offering mental health and addictions services as well as school pediatric interventions with aboriginal youth-at-risk aged 6 to 24 years. She has also worked with active military members suffering from severe PTSD, mild traumatic brain injuries, chronic pain, and musculoskeletal injuries.  She now owns a private practice “Lisa’s Holistic Rehab” offering cutting edge interventions like Neurofeedback to help people with brain based disorders.  She also teaches part time at Eastern College.
 
When she is not running around taking her 2 active children around to their activities, she can be found working out in the gym to de-stress. Her involvement with the Network for the Empowerment of Women gives her the opportunity to help women and girls live to their potential.
