Welcome! I'm Lisa.

I'm a Registered Canadian Reflexology Therapist (RCRT) and Life Coach Practitioner.

I was born and bred in Nova Scotia, and I also lived in British Columbia for 10 years, which is where I went to university and got my Education degree.

I’m a passionate advocate for health and wellness, and this is what guides my life and my work.

It wasn’t always like this though, and the turning point for me happened in the fall of 1999, when I got a phone call that would change the course of my life...

It was my mother. She had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

As you can imagine, I was devastated. And, it was a big wake-up call.

Because when faced with the potential death of someone so close to me, I realized life was precious and anything could happen. It made me take a closer look at my own life and ask myself some seriously deep questions...

Am I living the life that I was meant to be living? Am I being true to my heart? Am I in right relationship to myself and those around me? Am I treating myself well?

These questions led to me making some drastic changes in my life and begin my journey of learning how to treat myself well - physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

I realized that rather than waiting until chronic and acute health care problems show up, I needed to choose preventative and alternative healthcare options to actively support my own health and well-being. The journey towards this is what led me to become a holistic health care practitioner.

Along the way, I also discovered I am one of the 20% of people born with a genetic trait known as Sensory Processing Sensitivity, which means I am a highly sensitive person (HSP).

Essentially, I have a very highly-tuned central nervous system, giving me the ability to process information at a very deep level - more deeply than most - and I take in and think about details that most people never even notice.

I also have a higher level of empathy, which means I’m more aware of the emotions of others and I think about what others need. In essence, I am wired to help others.

With training and experience, I have honed my ability to listen intently and offer intuitive, insightful and practical feedback that helps people become more self-aware. People tend to feel clearer, more directed and more confident after working with me.

In all areas of my life, I use these strengths to invoke growth and change in others. In fact, I have been referred to as a change-maker - helping people go beyond old boundaries and perceived limitations.

I still struggle in life like any other human-being. Mostly with myself. I'm talking about the thoughts and fears I have that threaten to hold me back and get me down. Over the years, I've learned how to face these things (instead of running from them), and I can now make friends with these dragons with much more skill and compassion for myself than I used to.

To keep myself healthy I eat healthy, receive a reflexology treatment at least once a month, go for walks in nature, do deep breathing exercises and meditate daily, do yoga, dance whenever I can, and sometimes I simply get into my pjs and eat popcorn while watching Netflix.

For added support, I also have my own coach, counselor, massage therapist, osteopathist, naturopathic doctor and medical doctor. I have a whole damn team that supports me when I need it! And you should too.

I say no to things that don’t make me happy and yes to things that do.

Most importantly, I speak my truth. Always.
