Lisa is a Saskatoon born Metis woman who loves prairie life and embodies blooming where you are planted.
Spending 25 years at the feet of women during childbirth taught Lisa much about the power of breath. There she learned to honour the deep wisdom of the human body, the transformative power of birth and the formative imprints of transitional experiences on our identity. There she learned to listen, to witness, to dance with change, and to hold sacred and intimate space for others.
Her concurrent career as a mental health professional with a special focus on integrative therapies for trauma recovery led to an exploration of conscious connected breathwork. The potency of her personal experiences with breathwork was a pivot point personally and professionally. She now pursues understanding how both the science and the spirit of breath practices affect our presence and performance.
After completing certification in Somatic Breath Therapy, she became a Certified Breath Behaviour Analyst, and in 2020 completed a Masters degree in Applied Breathing Sciences through the Graduate School of Behavioural Health Sciences. She is the Canadian National Representative to the International Breathwork Foundation , on Faculty at Numa Somatics, and is a professional member of both the Canadian Thoracic Society and Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.
She is grateful to have the opportunity to join the team at New Earth Therapy in 2021 to lovingly serve others in her practice to find more room to breathe.
