Meet Lisa

Trauma-Informed Somatic Mindfulness Coach and Facilitator

Anchor 1

Hello, I'm Lisa. I am a Trauma-Informed Somatic Mindfulness Coach, Adler-trained Executive Coach, and Somatic Stress Release Practitioner focusing on self-reconnection, nervous system empowerment, and burnout recovery. I support overwhelmed leaders and care providers in transforming their stress response so they can reclaim agency and thrive in all areas of life. 

As a former Corporate Change Agent and Human Resources Business Partner with over 25 years of experience in high-performing senior leadership roles, I understand how our 24/7 "always on" culture keeps many caring, high-performing people in a state of overwhelm and exhaustion.

 

Decades of 60-hour work weeks and high-needs parenting left me in a state of disconnection and depletion. When I experienced a series of shock traumas and losses in my early 40s, I started experiencing nervous system dysregulation in the form of anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms, headaches and digestive problems. I pushed through escalating symptoms of burnout to the point of collapse, developing a debilitating illness that kept me bedridden and in pain for over a year.

 

My body kept the score, and I was forced into stillness for the first time in my over-scheduled, adrenaline-filled life. Despite this predicament, part of me knew there was a way back to regulation and purpose-led contribution. 

Talk therapy and working with a Naturopath paved the way to discovering somatic mindfulness, transformational coaching and The Stillpoint Method for healing complex trauma. I committed to healing my mind-body system and started recreating my life and career from the inside out. I am a change maker, cycle breaker, and lifelong learner who, since November 2021, has attended weekly classes and daily somatic mindfulness practice with Senior Meditation Teacher and Elder Lynn Fraser.

If you're ready to receive the support of a trauma-informed coach and somatic mindfulness guide, allow me to support you on your journey of self-reclamation. 

 

Learn about my integrative coaching approach and the somatic modalities that lead me from burnout to wholeness.
