My Journey


My background encompasses broad interests and trainings in biology, anthropology, international health, vision questing, shamanism, traveling, working with addictions, and more. From these experiences I have learned the importance of being deeply heard and feeling safely supported so you are free to express your thoughts, emotions, and longings.

I am passionate about helping clients dig deeper into their wisdom and supporting them in finding and expressing what they love.

I feel that we are exploring what human does to our being. The exploration takes us through infinite combinations of conditions and influences, both inner and outer.

As a Life Coach, Lisa will guide you through a highly creative, non-judgmental, and fun experience to explore who you long to be. She applies deep listening, open questioning, and brainstorming for client driven results. This means that she will work uniquely with you so your individual goals are achieved. Her intuitive style of coaching is based in other broad interests and trainings such as biology, anthropology, international health, vision questing, shamanism, not to mention curiosity, and playfulness. 

To further enhance her ability to help people, she is also trained in Voice Dialogue. This is a technique that allows her to access and facilitate greater awareness of the various selves or sub personalities you carry within. This allows you to increase your understanding of how to make choices that will serve, rather than sabotage, your life.

As a Certified Professional Coach (CPC) and Certified Life Coach (CLC), Lisa creatively applies her unique combination of tools based in working with people from all walks of life and backgrounds, nature-based soul work, meditation, art, poetry, shamanism, and compassionate intuition to help clients dare to trust in and live from their deeper wisdom. The end results are clients who enthusiastically live their best life.

Edges and Interstitial

This image represents many spaces and edges - sun and clouds, shadow and light, brownish death and greenish life, a promise of rainy relief from the sunny dryness, peaks and valley.

I love the word “interstitial” meaning to dwell around, amongst, and between - within the spaces or interstices. We move amongst and between edges every day.

What edges are you facing? How can you use them as a way to grow? Let me guide you to explore the “questions that have patiently waited for you, questions that have no right to go away.” (David Whyte, “Sometimes”)
