Lisa D. Cudhea, MA
Mental Health Therapist
Psychiatric Care Unit
What inspires you?
Watching patients allow themselves to be vulnerable during their stay in the hospital to gain strength that leads to change.
What do you like best about your department?
Being a part of two great treatment teams with a lot of knowledge, compassion and providing excellent patient care. I love the humor shared among both staff and patients. I love seeing the resiliency of patients.
How has COVID-19 affected your work?
Wearing a mask has made observations of facial expression in therapy difficult. Communicating openly regarding the difficulty and impact of COVID-19 has helped staying positive.
