portrait of Lisa

Psychotherapist, Entrepreneur, Coach

Even as a child, I was drawn to the world of healing. In my early career, I worked with adults, children, teenagers and families as a hands-on healer, exploring where stress is held in the body. In college, I pursued a degree in somatic psychology, and like so many therapists, my dream was to help my clients live a fuller and happier life by guiding them through the blocks that were inhibiting them. In some measure, I achieved this dream, but after two decades of running a successful therapy practice, I realized something was missing.

Traditional therapeutic methods focus on the treatment of the negative aspects of the human condition. Yet in my practice, I saw that when I helped my clients focus on their strengths and potential, their improvements were often dramatic. That's when I knew I wanted to create a new path and use my expertise to help my clients focus on their potential for empowering insight and lasting transformation.

At the same time, I began thinking about my entrepreneurial side. My father was a successful businessman and had fostered in me a distinct pleasure in watching his corporation grow. He taught me many virtues that I currently implement in my own business. I realized that I could blend the modalities of therapeutic guidance with the lessons of entrepreneurship to create an exceptional paradigm. That's when I ignited therapeutic coaching to help individuals like you travel on a journey to a more prosperous business and fulfilling personal life.

Leading from the Head and the Heart

Healing and creativity are core to who I am. I've witnessed time and again how when we tap into both sides of our brain – the logical and the creative – healing and growth happen exponentially.

I’m passionate about helping people connect to their inner wisdom. When we learn to quiet our inner bully, explore our negative thinking, and trust our wisdom, our lives, earnings, relationships and capacity for joy are transformed.
