Top 3 Areas of Focus
Health with Chronic Illness
Lisa is a certified health coach and received her training from the American Council on Exercise (ACE). Some other important roles in her life include wife, mother, grandmama, registered nurse and nurse educator, and author. As a heart attack and stroke survivor, Lisa has a unique perspective on health that inspires her to guide others on their journey toward well-being. She understands the emotional overwhelm and mental noise you might feel when attempting to make healthy behavioral changes and believes that slow, steady progress leads to success. Lisa has experience in helping clients overcome resistance to change while supporting them as they develop their individualized, holistic approach to health. She can help you recognize your current strengths and develop strategies to use those strengths to your advantage. Lisa is a good health coach if you have ever felt like giving up on your health goals and for anyone facing the challenges of chronic illness.
"Start where you are and start today!"
Lisa has been a registered nurse for over 30 years. In 2016, she became a certified health coach so she could begin to help people on the “front end” of their health journey. As a heart attack and stroke survivor who also lives with diabetes and Meniere’s disease, Lisa has a unique perspective on health that inspires her to guide others as they build their own definition of well-being.
Lisa has experience with important coaching skills and has helped a wide variety of clients create successful plans for lasting change. While she does have her health coach certification, it might surprise you to know that she no longer calls what she does coaching— she felt the term was confusing and really what she does is help people, like you.
One of Lisa’s core beliefs is that behavior change begins with self-compassion. Developing self-compassion toward yourself can be a challenge if you’ve felt shame about your weight, felt like you’re to blame for your illness, or find it difficult to be “successful” at staying healthy. Sometimes it’s hard to not want to give up!
I want you to know that nothing needs to be added to the equation of you—You’re valuable right here, right now! Yes, there may be habits or actions that you’d like change or improve, but self-compassion builds the foundation for success.
That’s all I have to say about me— because, in the end, this isn’t about me. It’s about YOU. We can work together in a beautiful way that supports the creation of a plan for your vision of well-being. Because that’s what matters to me: YOU!
