Lisa uniquely blends her expertise in Self/ Professional Development and the Creative Arts. A former teacher with a degree in English and minor in music, she creatively empowers individuals and small groups to better understand and utilize existing assets and inner resources, to transform personal liabilities, and to explore cross-disciplinary approaches to problem-solving so that one can truly craft the "self-designed life."
Do you feel your life genuinely reflects your self ? Most people have a hard time identifying and going after what most speaks to them in the world. Having to make money and communicate effectively to others, among other things, gets in the way. Feeling perplexed about how to integrate different facets of your life and being overwhelmed by personal and professional transition is natural. But trying to work through those feelings and still feel balanced and sane in the process is difficult!
In her work as a Personal & Professional Development Adviser for the last 25 years (as well as in much of her writing, music and performance) Lisa has been engaging individuals around sense of self ever since leaving the traditional world of teaching-- to work through problems interpersonally, in career, and essentially asserting one’s way of being in the world. She offers affordable coaching for individuals, utilizing methodologies incorporating cross-disciplinary, creative, humanistic and Jungian approaches, as well as Dialectical Behavior and Motivational Enhancement Therapies, and more. Consultations available in person and via telepresence, phone and even email advisements.
