If you are looking to regain control of your life and not sure how to get there, you are one step closer in achieving that goal!
I am a board certified life coach (BCC) and member of the International Coach Federation (ICF). With this certification and membership, I have met the professional coaching competency standards required by the Center of Credentialing and Education and agree to adhere to BCC and ICF recommended Code of Ethics. I also hold a postgraduate degree in education and child/adolescent development.
My passion has always been working with people to enrich their lives. My experiences include teaching children and adults along with facilitating parent education sessions. In addition to this teaching and facilitation, my personal life experiences have led me to my current role: coaching and empowering others in designing the life they want and deserve.
As your personal life coach, I am committed to providing support and guidance for you to transform your life. I work with you to identify what really matters to you. I maintain a safe and confidential environment to talk aloud desires, fears and concerns without judgment. Together we develop strategies and plans to bring balance back into the areas of your life that are less than satisfactory. If you are committed to getting back in the “driver’s seat” and ready to explore life’s possibilities, I look forward to working with you!

“Working with Lisa helped me prioritize my professional life goals and served as the catalyst for me to re-enter the workforce after a one-year hiatus. Lisa provided a judgment-free safe space with guidance and grace. The Purpose Clarity program provided not only a step-by-step framework to plan my next chapter, but also important retrospection about who I am and what I want in this life. Lisa is encouraging, trustworthy and provides such positive energy that you want to succeed.”

“After hitting a milestone birthday and finding that all the things promised from the coming decade were not coming easy to me, I committed myself to 4 months with Lisa to get my life balance in order and work on the art of saying no. Even now, several years later, I hear Lisa’s soothing voice in my head when I am asked to take on something new. The investment in life coaching is invaluable and I truly believe everyone should have a life coach in their corner to navigate an ever changing, fast paced world that does not always share my core values. I am forever grateful to Lisa for her help!”

“I went through very tough period of time in my career and personal life a couple of years ago. I decided to hire a coach but wanted someone who could work with me both personally and professionally. Lisa was the perfect choice. She asked all the right questions to empower me to make some important decisions. She never suggested but simply allowed me to figure it out on my own. I am so grateful for the experience and have continued to work with Lisa when I need the support.”
