Integrative Personal Coaching
Welcome, come in, sit! Tell me what’s going on. I’ll listen. We will dig in and figure out a path together. I’m so glad you are here!
It’s time to thrive in a life you love.
What you want and how I can help
You feel stuck. You want direction, clarity, and change. I zero in on the root of the challenge. I home in on what you really want and help you develop a plan and the skills for how to get there. I’m alongside you step-by-step as your confidence and soul-happiness grow, and you move forward.
You’ve lost sight of your own needs. Maybe you’ve been consumed by the “should’s, have to’s, and to do’s.” You need someone alongside you who is going to guide you in saying “YES” to YOU. I help you put better boundaries in place so you reclaim your time, honor your body, bring you into rhythm with nature and beauty, and hear your soul guiding you again.
Your life is good but you want MORE. You might be comfortable and successful in your career. You might have good personal relationships. But something is missing. I see that desire as sacred. It’s your soul calling you to live with fierce devotion and love. I help you “tune INside” yourself with simple, uncomplicated body-centered mindfulness and compassion practices so you take actions OUTside for your creativity, love, gifts, and passions to flow.
You have been playing small. It’s time now for you to rise. Imagine what could happen if you took the step to be just 10% braver. You need a dose of soul courage. I got you. I will inspire you to see the unique light within you, and guide you in taking the next right steps to let your light shine.
I am more than a coach
When we work together, you get more than just a “life coach.” I look at the whole person you are, not just one small area of your life: mind, body, spirit, emotions, relationships, career, dreams, and spirituality. That’s “integrative” — and it ensures that the changes you make in coaching are effective and impact your whole life.
I pull from my training and experience as a licensed psychotherapist and mindfulness and compassion teacher as well as my extensive studies in trauma healing, spirituality, yoga, energy work, embodiment, and meditation. I bring all this to create a sacred space for you to get unstuck and living with soulful intention.
Sessions with me are 1:1 – personalized and tailored. You have me fully present with my eyes, intuition, and experience on your life to guide you in making powerful shifts.
No cookie-cutter program here! I DO NOT lead you through a cookie-cutter program nor timeframe that YOU have to fit into. Every session is tailored to what’s right for YOU. I offer body-centered, nervous system nourishing, soul-building, and compassion-based practices, meditations, reflections, excersises, and experiences specifically for YOU to heal and grow.
I see some clients for a few months and others for a few years. It’s all based on your needs and goals.
Clients tell me they can feel the difference. They start to say things like: “I feel so much lighter and clearer!” and “I am much more grounded and centered!” and “I feel focused and empowered” and “I now have the tools to feel like I can work with this (situation, challenge, etc) in a way that feels aligned with who I really am.”
Sounds like what you need?!
I offer a free 30 minute consult. Set one up and share with me what’s on your mind and heart and questions you have. I will share with you how we might work together. People always tell me that taking this action feels like an empowering step in the direction of choosing their happiness. It’s time.
“No one in professional coaching is offering this combination of guidance, Lisa, let alone has the expertise in several modalities and knows how to integrate them the way I’ve experienced with you!” -N.R., professional coaching client.
I hear so often from clients that they desire inner confidence and clarity. They secretly want to feel that they are okay and it’s okay to focus on their needs and dreams. I don’t just just talk to you about these things; I guide you to build a new relationship with “all that arises.”
I work from a wellness model and strengths-based approach that integrates mind-body-spirit modalities to guide you to move forward with your specific goals. Sessions with me weave together: body-centered practices; spiritual wisdom; mindfulness: compassion; energy work; and resilience-training.
This integrative coaching approach came about not only because it weaves together my decades of studies and interests, but it has also struck a chord with so many of my clients and I have been able to witness deep transformations in them.

Coaching Isn’t Therapy
Integrative coaching is about helping you to get clear on where you are NOW and what you most desire for the future. In therapy, people come to me with symptoms that are bothering them – anxiety, depression, trauma – and they want to feel better.
Because of my clinical background and expertise, I know what kind of space supports thriving and I know when to refer clients for counseling to another therapist.
“Lisa has a way of really being with you, of seeing all the “stuff” you are carrying around, how you are hurting, and what that hurt is doing to your whole system (mind body spirit). AND (this is the important part) she KNOWS how to speak to the part(s) of you that need tending to the most.“ -Kristen Johnson, personal coaching client.

What my coaching clients have to say
Lisa has a way of really being with you, of seeing all the “stuff” you are carrying around, how you are hurting, and what that hurt is doing to your whole system (mind body spirit). AND (this is the important part) she KNOWS how to speak to the part(s) of you that need tending to the most. With me she used meditation work, science, breath work, and gave me lessons in mindfulness that I continued (and continue) to use every day.
Lisa is a beautiful soul who shares her authentic and evolving self with her clients and lovingly holds space for them. Lisa has helped me listen to my still inner voice and zero in on what I want for myself, my family, and who my real Self is. I felt a sense of empowerment from working with Lisa and a re-connection with my physical and emotional body. She also taught me numerous short and practical practices to use on a daily basis while traveling on this bigger evolutionary journey!
Thank you for your so beautiful, so poignant and profound work with me. Thank you for what you read and see, behind the lines, inside the soul. There is so much to say. You are so gifted that can see so deeply and profoundly and intuitively. You see things that we can just sense and have this power to express them, turning them into something that we can understand, see more deeply or often even see for the first time so simply and clearly.
My work with Lisa through compassion coaching has truly transformed me. When I began these sessions I was broken down. Feelings of grief and anger were at the forefront of my life. Lisa was able to hold sacred space for me as I worked my way back to myself.
Lisa has the ability to see all the parts of me that needed healing- mind, body, and spirit. She used various techniques including guided meditation, cognitive restructuring, and breath work to assist my healing. She could sense what my nervous system needed in order to return it to a state of calm.
I have learned how to resource and support myself when faced with difficult emotions. Lisa deeply regarded all parts of myself which helped lead me back to loving and caring for myself. I will be forever grateful for Lisa’s authenticity and compassion while working with me.
Working with Lisa nurtures me in my own growth which allows me to nurture those around me. She is like a best friend who knows deeply who you are, who can skillfully maneuver a conversation to bring you to your own place of knowing. She has a way of getting through the noise of life and putting a spotlight on the solution to a challenge that is of my highest and best self.
I reached out to Lisa during an overwhelming and multifaceted transition in my life. I was seeking guidance and support as I began a new path in my professional life, at the same time that I started a new chapter in my personal life. I was feeling under-resourced, lacking energy, ultimately lacking the energy and confidence I needed to start my journey. After several sessions of mindfulness and compassion coaching, I was able to access a clearer and more confident self, which allowed me to make mindful decisions and take action in a self-compassionate and intentional way. Lisa encouraged me to follow my heart and do the next best thing for me. Through her support and authenticity, I found the courage to make necessary decisions by inspiring and accompanying me to connect more deeply with myself.
When I started sessions with Lisa I actually enrolled for a whole new life. I met her at a time where I felt really stuck. I had tried all kinds of therapies and yet nothing seemed to “get things moving.” That’s when I found Lisa. Not only did I land in my body and life again in a way that felt comfortable, at ease, and “known” – I also discovered so many ways of being “me” that I had never fully explored. Coaching with Lisa has been one of the greatest gifts I have given myself. “The travel to formerly unknown regions” has been easy and smooth and I have felt so taken care of. I wholeheartedly recommend her work!
How to Get Started with Personal Coaching or Therapy
I offer a free 30-minute consultation call so potential clients can ask questions and get a sense of our work together before diving in. It gives me a chance to get to know you and learn how I can best support you, too, which I find leads to a strong first session. It's a great, low-risk way to get started.
