Soul+ Body + Mind Coaching

Is it time to see yourself and your life in a whole new way?

My coaching is an integral approach to the internal ecosystem of Soul+Body+Mind. Through any of these portals you can access the greater whole of the self, and the interconnectedness of all layers of existence. The coaching process is all about finding the seed of your experience and applying the transformative power of Love and Presence as you remember who you are. My coaching is influenced by the following modalities woven into a seamless framework during each session:
  • Creative process and practice - sound, voice and music improvisation, writing, visual art
  • Bodywork - lovingkindness and presence through breath, awareness, and movement
  • Imagination and visualization
  • Conscious language - the power of words we choose and speak
  • Sacred body language translations - decoding the unspoken messages of the body
Life moments when coaching may be of benefit:
  • experiencing "burnout" as a caregiver, teacher, or health care professional
  • starting a new chapter in your career, your health, or your relationships
  • creating your own definition of success
  • committing to pursue your greater mission in life
  • recognizing there is more to life than the script you have been following
  • desiring more aliveness and creative energy in your life
  • distinguishing your own voice from the internalized voices of others
Do you feel called to explore a coaching relationship with me? I offer one-on-one sessions via Skype (worldwide) or in-person sessions in Half Moon Bay, California. Contact me to set up a *free* 20-minute phone or Skype consultation.

Here's what I do for you:

I create an environment of peace, safety, and playfulness that allows you to listen to your own truth and find clarity;
I share what I've learned in my own journey, and challenge you to discern what's true for you;
I witness you as you reach into your heart, see what's real for you, and build the strength to express it in the world;
I guide and support your process as you develop new habits and practice new ways of thinking, feeling, and acting;
I celebrate with you in that moment of discovery when your soul opens up to claim your own brilliance;
I joyfully support you as you find the music within you, and share it in the world as only you can.
I am not a "business" or "career" coach. If your goals are primarily financial ones at this time, there are many talented coaches who specialize in helping their clients achieve growth in their businesses and goals of wealth creation.
I believe that your life is your greatest teacher. I will help you get in touch with your creative potential as a human being, starting with the practical situations you find in your life right now. I will help you uncover and release the obstacles that stand between you and your highest potential to live a life of joy, peace, and freedom. I will also teach you the principles and habits of self-care that will serve you well beyond our coaching relationship as you continue to learn to listen to your life.

Testimonials

"Lisa has helped me transform from feeling like a lost and aimless empty nester to a joy filled woman with a full and exciting life. She helped me uncover and change the beliefs behind some thought patterns and behaviors I had that were no longer working for me. As a result, I now have my dream job as a financial coach at a local non-profit, I am drawing and painting again (something I loved in my youth and never gave my self permission to do as an adult), and I have a wonderful and loving relationship with my husband and daughter. Even more importantly, I am at peace within myself and am embracing life again. I am so thankful for Lisa’s gifts of listening, coaching and sharing her wisdom with compassion and understanding. Working with her has truly been life changing!" - Jill M., financial coach and mom
"I want to take this moment to REALLY THANK YOU Lisa. My outlook on life has been changing gradually over the last 3 months and I want to genuinely Thank you for being a great Life Coach. Your honesty and willingness to make a difference in my life is tremendously appreciated (more than words can express). You have become a role model for me. I am really inspired by what you have done (and continue to do) for yourself and others because I know how much courage and persistence it takes." - Neha K., physician
"Almost everybody who has heard my story cannot believe it. More than one person have come up to Jaime and said, "So George basically dropped everything, decided he wanted to do something different, but had no experience in it, and now he's doing it?" People have come up to me and told me that I've inspired them because they didn't think that it was possible to make that kind of dramatic change in one's life....I'm only just scratching the surface of everything that I'd like to share with you, but more than anything, I just wanted to say Thank You for being a force of positive change in my life when I really needed it." - George M., from business owner to dream job as theme park interactive ride producer/creator
"This wasn't just some New Age internal bliss while the world moves on.  I gradually changed my behavior, attitude, job, hobbies, classes, living circumstances, relationships, family ties, etc.  More importantly, I shifted the way I lived and experienced this world, which was the real answer to "fixing my career."...After one year with Lisa, my life is different both internally and externally.  Internally, I experience more stillness and excitement.  I am much less reactive.  I feel more wonder for the things that intrigue me....First and foremost, it is her genuine understanding and interest in applying what she has learned to help me.  It is, in fact, what prompted me to continued working with Lisa at the beginning despite frustration with other coaches and therapists.  Another quality I'd like to highlight is her "warm wisdom".  She has or is walking the path she teaches.  She coaches me like a wise companion." - Travis C., from tech executive to world traveler
"I became a client of Lisa's and have had coaching sessions both by phone and in person, in the peaceful ocean setting of the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay and in a "healing hike" in the hills of Silicon Valley.  These have been magnificent experiences.  The outdoor atmosphere, in particular, helped me to gain a fresh perspective, extract my mind from workaday concerns, and assess my life's path from an "aerial view" in nature's patient, serene surroundings.
"She urged me, through the adoption of specific practices, to make space -- both temporal and physical -- in my life and to be creative, rather than reactive, in difficult situations.  With her guidance, I have begun examining the thoughts that underlie feelings I previously thought were spontaneous and automatic, and to question the truth of those thoughts.
"At once brilliant, patient, and understanding, Lisa excels as a life coach, brimming with creative ideas.  If you want a reality-based approach to taking your life to the next level, beyond where others would have you settle, contact Lisa to begin your quest." - James Hill, MD
