Balanced, Sustainable, Well-being

Radically, Authentically, YOU.

“And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?” 

― Rumi                         

THE WAKE UP CALL 

THE WAKE UP CALL feels like this:

  • I look in the mirror and I don’t recognize myself
  • My life looks great on paper, why can’t I sleep?
  • The kids are out of the house now and I wonder, “Where did I go?”
  • I am so tired of being tired
  • Nothing fits my body or my life anymore
  • My default button is stuck on Busy, not Being
  • I feel invisible
  • I’m with people all the time, why do I feel so isolated, disconnected, and lonely?
  • I miss the younger version of myself who was ready to be a force in the world

THIS CAN BE A DEEPLY PAINFUL MOMENT AND YOU MAY BE ASKING YOURSELF: 

HOW DID I GET HERE AND WHAT DO I DO NOW?

YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND

YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND feels like this:

  • I can look myself in the eye.  I am proud of who I am
  • I sit down at the end of the day and feel contentment and ease, even when the day was difficult
  • I have friends who I like and trust and they like and trust me too
  • I not only have energy to do what I need to do, but I have a sense of relevance and purpose that keeps me interested and excited

FINDING YOUR FEET STARTS BY TAKING THE FIRST STEP.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

“Lisa inspires me to reach deep into my soul and discover capabilities within myself I didn’t know existed. Her energy and motivation to seek adventure and to find goodness and abundance in the everyday are contagious and bring a sense of joy, wellbeing, balance, and peace.”

– Shari K.

“I found it really helpful to check in with Lisa every week, assess my progress against the past week’s goals, and set goals for the upcoming week. I set goals with her for many aspects of my daily life. I really appreciated the fact that she didn’t try to give me all the answers but helped guide me to find my own solutions.”  – Marcia V.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I work with you if I do not live in the Ann Arbor/Metro Detroit area?
Yes! Wellness coaching can be done over the phone or by Skype and still deliver powerful, transformative results. I work with clients across the United States.
How does wellness coaching differ from psychotherapy or personal training or therapy?
I believe wholeheartedly that there are many avenues to choose from when making lifestyle changes for better health and wellness. As your wellness coach I adhere strongly to a professional code of ethics and work only within my scope of practice. It is not my role to make diagnoses or offer health related advice or counseling in areas outside my area of expertise. It’s not uncommon for my clients to be working simultaneously with me and their psychotherapist.

My expertise as a wellness coach comes from my background in the areas of health, wellness and behavior change, and while physical fitness is an important component to living a healthy lifestyle, it’s just one. I will work with you to find success in all areas of wellness: social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual and physical wellness.

Will you coordinate with my physician/healthcare provider?
Your medical provider may suggest wellness coaching for help in making lifestyle changes that will be sustainable and will help you prevent, manage, or even reduce the complications of a chronic disease. My job is to be your ally, helping you improve your overall health and well-being  by developing an integrated and holistic wellness plan. At your request and with your consent I will collaborate with your healthcare provider.
Does my insurance pay for your services?
Many insurance companies have begun to cover wellness coaching. It is best to consult with your insurance company to see if it is covered. I am happy to provide you with a receipt for services. Some clients have been able to use employer-offered flexible spending accounts for wellness coaching services.
Can you help me lose weight?
Sure I can help you with this goal. My guess is this is one of the areas you have been struggling with for a long time and have found yourself again and again on the yoyo of the weight loss continuum. Your weight loss goal may be what draws you to wellness coaching, but I suspect as you gain confidence and a sense of control you will find ways in which you are able to sustain the results and ultimately find a better balance in all areas of healthy living.
