Testimonials from my clients:
My somatic session with Lise was not only a welcome calm moment in my day, but provided me with new insights about my creative work. She helped me form a question to explore that felt potent and alive, and, with her support, I was able to open up to more curiosity in a grounded way and hear important messages from my body.
Working with Lise helped the various parts of my creative self all feel truly seen – such a gift!

Lise held such gentle, supportive, and permission giving space. It was so reassuring for my inner good girl who was afraid to break the rules. Lise’s permission to meet myself exactly where I’m at and her encouragement to go slowly and gently allowed me to meet those tender young parts of myself that need love and care.

Lise holds a skill set that is uniquely crafted to assist anyone on a healing path. She is capable and expansive, solid and honest, experienced and wise.

Lise is an intelligent guide who utilizes language of consent and gentle suggestion within her practice. She has an intuitive way of extending space to her clients while encouraging them to safely explore the edges of their internal landscapes through movement and body awareness.
I have absolute confidence in Lise as a somatic healing practitioner and believe that anyone who is seeking further healing and resourcing through movement would benefit from working with her.

I’ve been in two workshops with Lise and each time I’m taken aback at how deep she leads us and how loved and supported I feel. I particularly respond to her prompt to slow down or move slower. When she offers this I realize my mind may be starting to race or I’m trying to hurry through and her gentle reminder brings me back to the session.

The somatic healing session that Lise led me through was intense and powerful. Intense partly because thanks to Lise’s gentle and kind companionship my body allowed me to go towards challenging sensations. Powerful because it led me towards more clarity and greater commitment to both self-compassion and self-challenge. Also because it felt like an opening, a potential portal, and I’m interested in coming back to working with Lise in the future.
My session with Lise was like nothing else I’ve experienced. She facilitated an exploration of inquiring within myself through movement that was so gentle and yet so powerful. I was able to feel into places in my body and being that were painful (either physically, or emotionally, or both) and ALLOW them to shift under my own gentle attention and care. It was more of an un-doing than a doing.
If you’ve done a lot of talking about your stuff, and things aren’t shifting in the way you’d like, I highly recommend trying this movement-healing modality. Our bodies are so wise, and Lise helps you tap into that innate wisdom. This work helped me feel more grounded & integrated, with a deeper trust in myself and my body.

When I first registered for a movement workshop with Lise, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I felt open and curious, and also nervous. I had never before tried anything similar to what Lise offers. I struggle with social anxiety, so registering for something like that was outside of my comfort zone.
I was blown away. Lise is such a gentle and welcoming guide, which helped put me at ease in the face of my nerves. And then there was the movement itself, which helped me hear what my body wanted in new ways. I was able to get out of my head a bit, which I often struggle to do. It was a soft, loving way to connect with myself that I didn’t know I needed. I highly, highly recommend giving yourself the gift of a movement workshop with Lise.

Lise, thank you so much for this beautiful offering. I had no idea what to expect going in, but this was such a fantastic experience, and I’m so appreciative of the wisdom you’ve shared with us and how you’ve helped open up a conversation for me with my body.
