About Lisa

Writer. Holistic Practitioner. Empowerment Coach.

Life is a question and how we live it is our answer.

Gary Keller

Certified Life Coach, Intuitive and Reiki Master

Certified Life Coach and Intuitive – I’m a very down-to-earth and practical person so my approach to coaching reflects that. I received my life coach certification from the Certified Coaches Federation in 2009 and have used my training and intuition to provide clients with practical and useful tools.

My focus is empowerment coaching: A transformative and client focused approach to personal development and growth.

Aura & Chakra Scans – Using the technology of the Biopulsar Reflexograph (Aura & Chakra scans) and practical life skills tools, I help people enhance their quality of life and gain a feeling of fulfillment. 

My exploration of energy has been a constant in my life. In 1992, I became a Reiki practitioner and later a Master.

I was so drawn to Reiki and the gentle power that it possesses. I had a Reiki practice but found I was being guided in a different direction. In 1993, I naively approached the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada explaining how Reiki works and how it would greatly benefit patients. That conversation led to pioneering two scientific research studies showing how Reiki decreases pain and improves the quality of life. Currently, I enjoy teaching Reiki and sharing this wonderful modality.

Young readers embark on an adventure-filled quest and discovery of friendship, kindness, self-acceptance plus educational fun-facts, and the healing properties of gemstones.

Each story revolves around Crystal and her beagle buddy, Noodle, and all the characters they meet. Readers can realize, experience, and reflect on the additional social issues about fitting in and accepting yourself for your uniqueness.

This inspiring chapter book is written for ages 7 – 11. Young readers, their parents, and teachers will enjoy the full color, creative format, the life lessons of each story, and the incorporation of gemstones and their meaning in daily life. The My Thought for Today and journal element within each story gives encouragement for journaling. A helpful resource for home and classroom.

“You can never have too many rocks.” That’s my motto.

My fascination with rocks has taken on many forms, much like the rocks I hold so dear. I create metaphysical jewelry using gemstones, write stories for children about the wonders of rocks, and get so excited when I see a type of rock I’ve never seen before. A wannabe rock hound, I love learning about rocks, their properties, and feeling their energy.

Lisa lives in Virginia and loves being near the water whether it be the ocean, river, lake, pond, or puddle.
