"This is not who I am..."
Have you ever found yourself saying this?
When I first meet with a client and we talk about what they are experiencing and their symptoms, almost every single one of them then says, with heartfelt grief, "This is not who I am and I don't know how to get back to the old me."
The frustration is real as they are used to being productive, being active, and not being a complainer.
They are the one at work that everyone can count on as the problem solver.
The one at home that is the go-to, the positive one, the one others look to to get things done.
If any of this resonates with you, you are in the right place.
I work with smart, talented, high performing women who are dealing with health challenges that are keeping them from showing up the way they want to and from contributing to their full capacity.
And what they find is that, yes, you can get back to who you once were - only better!
"I sought Lisa's help to see about losing weight and improving my heart condition. But what really drew me to Lisa was the transformation I saw in my wife's friend. After working with Lisa, she got the twinkle back in her eyes again. That's what I wanted too."
