Dr. Natasha Little-Harrison

I have had the privilege of working alongside Dr. Lisbon-Peoples and have first hand knowledge of Dr. Lisbon-Peoples' passion for advocating for children and families. She is knowledgeable about current research in both fields of psychology and education, and has a good business sense and management style.

Due to her level of knowledge and her desire to assist others, she served as a great resource for both the faculty in the school system in which she worked, as well as the families that she served.

On a more personal level, Dr. Lisbon-Peoples was a great mentor to me when I began working in the district. I highly recommend Dr. Lisbon-Peoples as a psychologist, consultant, educator, and trainer.

Linda Harris, Ed.D

In a day and age where few will remain with one employer for a lifetime, a trustworthy guide like Dr. April Lisbon-Peoples is an invaluable resource.

As I navigated the decision-making process of a career change that involved a cross-country move and significant reduction in salary, April provided me with resources and feedback that allowed me to better prioritize my life without compromising the quality of life to which I had become accustomed.

In addition to her contagious can-do attitude, April opened my eyes to opportunities that were not only new to me, but also made my chosen career change possible. The decisions and follow through were up to me, but April provided clarity and insight that likely would have cost me years of floundering around to discover independently.

Dr. April Lisbon has been such a blessing to my family’s life words can never express our appreciation! After hitting a brick wall with my son who is ADHD, I turned to Dr. April just to vent. Dr. April and I grew up together and I knew she would give me sound advice.

Her advice has made my son and the school do a 180. I am still amazed at the results her advice has produced. My son went from being a problem in school to now getting A’s and B’s. She is very knowledgeable, experienced and passionate about her field. I would absolutely recommend her. “My family thanks you Dr. Lisbon”.

MBA, CPS, WH, QPR, CRM, YMHFA, AMHFA

April is the epitome of passion, tenacity, driven, conqueror and a leader. April and I had a coaching-coachee relationship that turned into a peer relationship. As April's Coach, April was tasked with a variety of assignments to stretch her skills, knowledge and abilities.

Each time, April's results superseded the norm as it relates to her performance, self-confidence, and her desire to be all that she can be. It was shortly thereafter, April and I were speaking as Keynote Speakers and Advocates on a nationwide Mental Health Platform that warranted mental health resources and services that April was readily available to provide.

I highly recommend April. As she has proven time after time, that is self-driven, motivated and will get the task completed with high yielding results. She will without a doubt be an asset to any task, program or organization.
