Generative Wholeness Practitioner

Lyssa specializes in the development of human beings, seeking to bring their very best self forward into their families, their teams, their organizations, and communities. Our ability to expand our awareness, get curious about our reoccurring narratives, allows us to lead from a place of conscious authenticity. Lyssa’s clients develop themselves at a foundational level. She uses humor and playfulness to explore their deep and often unconscious limiting stories so that they can choose the stories that they want to explore, keep, set at the curb, or rewrite.

Success stories

  • Entrepreneur: When I started coaching with Lyssa I didn’t believe that I could work for myself. I wanted the autonomy of being an entrepreneur but I had a lot of fear that kept me feeling stuck. With coaching I have been able to name my goals, develop tenacity, and build a business of my own.

  • Small Business Owner: What I needed was direction on my business goals, as well as completing a few personal goals. With coaching I was able to really clarify my goals, have support in breaking the goals down into manageable chunks, and then working towards the ones that were important to me.

  • Movie Director: One of the biggest unexpected bonuses of coaching is how I learned a new habit of ongoing self-assessment in my work and personal life. It’s been a great process and a lot of very helpful changes have taken root in my life as a result of the time we spent collaborating.
