About Me & My Team of Therapy Dogs


Lisa M. Frazier, LPC, LMFT, NCC

I have been providing counseling services to individuals, couples, and families for over 12 years and licensed as a Professional Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist since 2014. I completed a Master's Degree in Couples and Family Counseling from the College of William and Mary in 2012 and have an array of clinically intensive experiences.  As appropriate, I work collaboratively with community providers and support systems to provide a holistic model of care.  I specialize in working with individuals struggling with various forms of depression, anxiety, trauma, grief/loss, behavioral difficulties, and complex family dynamics.
I utilize an eclectic and holistic approach, ranging from CBT, DBT, ACT, Solution Focused, Structural Family, and Animal-Assisted Therapy.  I strive to integrate creative strategies into counseling for the purpose of enhancing strengths and building skills. Further, I am passionate about incorporating your spiritual or cultural beliefs, whenever appropriate.
Fun Facts: I was born and raised in Southern California and lived in Virginia for 15 years. I currently reside in Idaho with my husband, English Bulldogs, and Parrots, although I spend a good amount of time with family in Virginia as well. Additionally, I enjoy superhero movies, hiking around lakes and rivers, skiing and snowboarding, and endless bulldog snuggle time!


The Original Therapy Dog Crew - Champ & Molly

Safe Harbor Counseling Center was originally founded on the principle of incorporating Animal-Assisted Therapy to provide comfort and support to those experiencing emotional distress and was inspired by my first pair of English Bulldogs. 


Champ, a 9 year old English Bulldog, was our fouding member and an inspiration of love, patience, and present-focused living. From day one Champ exuded pure unconditional love to anyone he met, a trait which carried through his entire life and years as a therapy dog. We raised him and had him in training since a puppy at 8 weeks old.  Champ passed his obedience and socialization training classes with flying colors prior to the age of 1 years old, obtaining both the AKC Star Puppy and Canine Good Citizen awards/certifications.  Shortly following he tested to become a certified therapy dog with Therapy Dog International and held that status until he retired in 2022.  Always a bundle of love perfectly content laying at your feet or by your side, Champ truly embraced the meaning of living in the moment and smelling the flowers. Over the years his blissful snore brought smiles all around and he was always the first to comfort those in tears. Although Champ is sadly no longer with us, he remains a part of this therapy dog mission and is a constant inspiration for helping others find joy and peace in their lives. We lead our new generation of therapy dogs under the founding standards that is Champ's legacy.


Molly is an 8 year old English Bulldog.  We have also raised her since a puppy.  Though she had a rough first two years of life, including a couple of joint surgeries, she remained in her training and passed her CGC and TDI certification tests by the age of 1 years old.  She is a very playful and loving pup that wants to be included and loved on by everyone she meets.  She makes adorable sounds while she plays and sleeps, including snorting like a pig, mooing like a cow, and snoring like a dinosaur... if dinosaur's snored.  Molly has always been a delight to the clients she works with, both children and adults, and will be sure to make you laugh every time you visit. Although Molly is now retired from active TDI status, she remains a loving presence for clients in my virtual office.

Our Newest Additions to the Therapy Dog Squad


Captain "CAP" - Jumbotron and Therapy Dog In-Training. He is an English Bulldog puppy that has a ray of sunshine, smiles, and high fives to go around the block or two. A sweet soul through and through, this large super boy wants lots of love and will accept nothing less. Captain is currently a registered AKC Star Puppy and is on his way to passing his next training class with high regard and tons of fans.


Vader the Po Tater - Therapy Dog in Training. He is an English Bulldog puppy full of spunk and pizazz in every way. The cookie power is strong with this one! Don't let his fun and adventurous face deceive you. Although he may walk on the "dark side" he is truly a precious boy with a lot of love and affection to offer. Vader is currently a registered AKC Star Puppy and is strutting his handsome self proudly to the next level of awesome.


Rocky - The Underdog & Therapy Dog in Training. He is an English Bulldog puppy, smallest in his litter, but the strongest spirit and the most calming presence. He is a gentle and quiet observer and never complains (something we could all learn from him), unless you rob him of cookies and attention. Only genuine top-notch belly rubs will do! Rocky is the youngest of the bunch, just beginning his journey through the AKC Star Puppy training process, and we are confident he will soar through the ranks!
