Lisa Hawkins, RN & Certified Life Coach
Lisa's coaching is based on the foundational belief that most of our problems are spiritual in nature. How we see God and see ourselves directly impacts the way that we live life in very significant ways.
With her clients, Lisa uses a series of coaching conversations designed to uncover hidden fears and to reveal personal and spiritual gifts to overcome those life-limiting fears.
In addition to her one-on-one coaching, she is also available for two-day workshops that focus on developing Christ-centered life plans. These workshops, conducted with sensitivity to the Holy Spirit, look backward and then move forward to create a life plan that brings balance, motivation, and purpose in your life.
Lisa's coaching is shaped by Episcopalian (with Baptist roots) faith, her 20 years of marriage and her experience overcoming her own challenges of a divorce, stormy relationships with children, and wanderings through the desert.
