“I have owned my own law firm for many years and I had reached a point in my practice where I felt stuck. Professionally, I was at a crossroads but I didn’t know how I had arrived there or which direction I was headed. I sought Lissa’s coaching services because I needed to find clarity to become unstuck and continue on my journey through life. Through my coaching sessions with Lissa, I was able to identify my strengths and learn how to use those strengths in productive and healthy ways. Without exception, I was able to implement the insights gained during each session into my workday to increase productivity, enhance client interactions, and reduce personal anxiety. Lissa is exceptionally skilled at asking the right question to bring an issue into focus so that it can be swiftly and effectively resolved. Thanks to Lissa I am no longer stuck and I am certain I am now on the right path.”
