About Lisa


Lisa Weiner is a nurse practitioner, parent consultant and faculty intern at the Neufeld Institute. She is a dynamic teacher and experienced parent consultant. 

Lisa’s work is fully rooted in the attachment-based developmental approach of Dr. Gordon Neufeld. The Neufeld Paradigm has deeply enriched her own parenting, her work helping parents and her understanding of herself, human development and relationships.

Lisa loves helping parents make sense of their kids through the lens of developmental science. She has supported growth and healing in families struggling with illness, divorce, aggression, screen time, discipline, autism-spectrum issues, attention issues and anxiety.

Lisa’s style is warm, supportive and down-to-earth. She lives in Portland, Oregon and is the mother of two boys, ages 16 and 13.
