Lisa’s background in mental health is complimented by a variety of alternative healing approaches that encourages holistic wellness and helps create an authentic approach to treating the “whole-self.” She believes that treating the whole person to and integrating the five basic dimensions of life – physical, career, emotional, social, and spiritual – is paramount to achieving optimal health and wellness. Lisa’s work focuses on addressing the whole system to minimize stress, promote well-being, and restore balance.

Lisa helps individuals explore and journey into the depths of what challenges them to discover their individual source of resiliency, confidence, and capability that lies within!
