Hi, I'm Lisa.
I'm a dreamer, a creator, a visionary and a guide. I love rainy days, learning, adventures and my beautiful family.
And I especially love the resiliency of the human spirit!
Life is a gift and there really is nothing more beautiful to me than being invited into your life. The heartfelt, inspiring, and beautiful lives that I get to witness are awe inspiring!
Life is also messy and I chose to become a Integrative Life Coach because this is where I can make the greatest impact by combining my life experience, natural gifts and world class training to help people turn their mess into a work of art!
I could lead with my credentials (scroll down if you want to see those first) but I'm more naturally inclined to lead with my heart.
I believe that coaching is sacred work and it is a true honor to walk this path with you.
As I've walked a few years on this Earth I've learned how powerful words and beliefs are. And that the way we envision our lives, talk about ourselves, and talk TO ourselves can determine how good our life feels. I've learned how important integration and really listening to our intuition is. I've learned that being ourselves is essential. It's the only thing that will make us feel good long term. And I've learned that we all have a whole lot to learn about giving and receiving love. Real love. Unconditional love.
'Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.' Rumi
This is me today.....How did I get here? One curious step at a time. I was curious about self empowerment because too often I felt powerless, and I was curious about healing because my own heart was hurting. I have always been inspired by stories where against all odds the underdog would make it, and I have always been inspired by the resiliency of the human spirit. I wanted to learn more about that! And then people started coming to me for help.
'Now, every time I witness a strong person, I want to know: What did you conquer in your story? Mountains do not rise without earthquakes.' Katherine MacKenett
All of this came very naturally to me but then came the painful initiations. First there was my time spent with anxiety and panic attacks. For years I struggled to varying degrees and it was a very, very challenging time. I learned the lingo and I understand the limitations and if this is where you are right now I have a special place in my heart for you. Then there was my time spent with rejection and estrangement from two primary figures in my life. Not easy stuff to navigate but thankfully I found my way through and these experiences have informed my work in a very powerful way. These are things you can't learn from a book or in a class. This is deep work of the heart that has offered me keen senses and language that will speak to your soul.
