***UPDATE 10/10/2016 - This monster is now practicing in Stephenville, TX and is going by the name Liam K Mancuso.*** Lisa AKA Kyle Mancuso has been sentenced to 6 months in Harris County prison for harrassment of a former patient. Please check for the story on your 9/22/2015 local news. If you have been harmed by the unethical practices of this individual, please contact the Harris County District Attorney's office. Your story deserves to be heard, and this person needs to be brought to justice. I too was a victim. You are not alone.

Lisa Mancuso is a very dangerous, scary and manipulative individual. I initially went to Miss Mancuso to seek help in dealing with some mild depression issues. After 6 months of her projecting her own personal issues on me, she convinced me I was a horrible wife, abusive parent and diagnosed me as being bipolar. She coached me on what to tell the referred psychiatrist so that I could get the "right" medication. When I refused to see a psychiatrist, she gave me some of her "own" medication so that I could see that I needed it. After a period of time, I had become so dependent on her that I succumbed to her advances and thus began a volatile, abusive relationship that has left me permanently emotionally and physically scarred.
She is a very troubled individual with severe alcohol, drug and sexual addiction tendencies. That energy drink she holds throughout her sessions is nothing more than straight vodka.
Fortunately, there are many good drs out there - I am lucky to have found one that is helping me recover from the damage done by Miss Mancuso....,without a need for medications.
Do your research, more than one client have committed suicide in her watch.
The couple of positive reviews were written by Miss Mancuso, herself. Sick individual.

As you read in the other reviews, Ms Mancuso has many problems herself. She projects her problems into me as the clients and made me feel very uncomfortable. She showed up at things of my personal life unannounced and insisted on calling my family and friends to relay what happened in our session. She was very disrespectful to me when I brought up the fact that she was getting hostile and upset with me for no reason. Lisa M Mancuso was sanctioned in 2011. Do the research and read the other reviews, everything I experienced with Dr Lisa Mancuso was unprofessional and misleading. FIND SOMEONE ELSE!!!

Dr. Mancuso is one of the worse therapists I have ever encountered. A close friend is also a therapist in Dallas and I would tell him about my experience and he was floored at everything I relayed. He obviously had some personal issues and would almost project them onto me (client). Theres a reason he's so cheap, he's a quack and should absolutely not be treating others until he gets treated himself for whatever problems he has. His stories sometimes make no sense and I would leave feeling worse than I did when I walked in. It became a place I dreaded going and I haven't been back in months. I'm surprised he's still in business.

Dr. Mancuso was my therapist for almost 3 years. I sought his help to deal with difficulties with family relationships and life transitions. I had never undergone psychotherapy, so I did not have a good comparison. I did not see as potential red flags his frequent advice on legal, financial and career matters; his encouragement of dependence on him; his revelations about his private life; his frequent request for advice and personal favors; and his inconsistent timeframe in sessions. Despite these issues, he did provide some valuable insights and I did experience improvements in my relationships with my family.

In the past year, Dr. Mancuso experienced severe personal problems in his life. His behavior worsened and I my stress level increased. The therapy sessions became a battle ground. When I questioned an insight he provided or I questioned what he was doing, he turned the issues around, and convinced me that it was my own fear of abandonment, intimacy and vulnerability that made me question him. The last straw was when Dr. Mancuso asked me to meet him outside of his office to give him advice on a personal matter. This is when I finally realized that he was violating the client/patient boundary.

I am now seeing a new therapist to address the distress I experienced with Dr. Mancuso. If you are reading this review, please get help from a psychotherapist that has the skill and knowledge to guide you through the process of healing. Dr. Mancuso may come across as a kind, compassionate and understanding therapist (and he may be), but he lacks the personal insight to provide a healthy and safe therapeutic relationship to his clients. He forgets that he is supposed to be a therapist, with clear patient/client boundaries, and not a friend to his clients.

It is quite concerning to me that prior negative feedback regarding this therapist has been removed. The public deserves to know the truth and to be properly warned prior to seeking therapy from this individual.

I was a regular patient of Dr. Mancuso's for approximately 1 year. In the beginning of our sessions, I felt as if I was making progress and that Dr. Mancuso was offering good insight and perspective. Over time, however, red flags started to emerge for me. Dr. Mancuso seemed to become so personally involved in my sessions that I felt as if I, the patient, was now having to counsel the therapist. Sessions became tiring and stressful and counter productive. In my gut I knew something was not right.

To make a long story short, I ended up seeking therapy from another doctor in order to assist me with the distress that Dr. Mancuso's therapy had caused. Seeing as that I had not had any therapy prior to Dr. Mancuso, I unfortunately was not able to see at the time of our sessions that that all sorts of therapist/patient boundaries were being crossed. Now I know.

I do not recommend the psychological services (or disservices, rather) of this individual. While I believe that good intentions may be present, I do not believe that this individual possesses the proper knowledge, skill set, or emotional and mental stability to function as a healthy therapist.

When I submitted my review previously, it came out missing a star. Dr. Mancuso is definitely a 5-star therapist. He provides genuinely helpful counseling at convenient times in a pleasant environment at reasonable rates. My personal progress has left me a strong supporter of this professional who has supported me through some difficult issues. Dr. Mancuso also provided me with testing services that gave me a better perspective on my situation and my options.
I would recommend Dr. Mancuso to friends and family.
