I have always been curious--an aware observer.  I am intrigued by human behavior, including my own.  I notice and appreciate subtleties and seemingly insignificant things taking place within my scope of experience.

 

This has led me to question things I was programmed to believe. Taking the road less traveled and moving forward even when I cannot see my next step has created opportunities for self-awareness and transformational personal growth.   

As a sensitive, intuitive woman, I recognize that healing is an inside job.  My healing journey includes paths and directions that seemed unconventional at times but have converged in such a way as to bring about a strong sense of cohesion.  Within this space, I am aligned with my innate wisdom and strengths.

 

I was born into a family system where difficulties were a common, daily occurrence. Much of my adult life has been devoted to overcoming childhood adversity, and releasing trauma. Throughout my experience, I have wandered from my healing path.  The struggles I encountered during those times served to reinforce my willingness to surrender to this path of intentional healing through self-examination, self-love and self-acceptance.

About Lisa

 We are all multi-faceted Beings and need different things at different times.  Following my needs has enabled me to become proficient within the realm of holistic health.

My healing journey, and education, began when I chose to listen to my inner voice.  In 2007, I walked away from a career which was detrimental to my well-being.  Led by faith, I stepped onto an unknown path and journeyed to India.

In India I encountered teachings around the question “Who Am I”.  This question can lead to powerful introspection, and has become a seed planted deep within me.  Exploring who I am continues to lead me on quite a journey.
