Lisa Dorfman, MS, LMHC, RD

I’m Lisa Dorfman, known by colleagues, clients and friends as The Running Nutritionist.® My journey as a professional triathlete and runner dates back to '84, cut short by a near fatal hit and run car accident in '21. I understand the process and journey of healing physically and emotionally.

While I am no longer a pro athlete, nor competing at the professional level, I think, feel, fuel and continue to train as an athlete and have the privilege to work with some of the finest athletes in the world—Olympians, professionals, our military servicemen and women, first responders and “everyday athletes” like YOU—men, women, teens and kids seeking to perform your best whether at sport, in school, at work, or at home.

You see we are all athletes in life, just looking for tools and strategies to help us navigate through the marathons of our lives—balancing our more challenging times while trying to share and celebrate good times living the lifestyle, we’d like to lead with the people we love most. It takes courage to reach out for therapist to lead more fulfilling and happier life and take the first steps towards a change. 


I believe that each one of us are the experts of our own story, my role is to merely help clients draw on their strengths to help them overcome the issues holding them back from achieving their personal best now and in the future. 

I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
