Here’s the great news. When you own your story, you get to write the ending.
That means that no matter where you are right now, when you own your story, you get to decide what’s next for you.
Maybe that’s making the transition from active military duty to civilian life. Maybe you’re navigating the transition from rehab to sober living. Maybe you’re trying to re-establish your life after serving time.
The point is: we all have a story we’d rather be living. We all have parts of ourselves that we’ve put aside and locked away to survive in this world.
What would it feel like to thrive? What would that new story be?
It can be difficult to describe exactly what it is that I do.
Coaching and storytelling often seem like nebulous terms; descriptors like “transformation” and “living the life you want” are used so often it’s hard to know what it all means.
I specialize in helping people navigate transitions so that they can:
Reduce their stress and increase their life satisfaction
Confidently make decisions rather than feel paralyzed
Be more engaged in their life and work, breaking the avoidance cycle
Learn how to adapt to the many changes life brings
I’ll let you in on a little secret. Shhhh.
I have a process.
It works for everyone I’ve coached. It works every time I coach someone.
Using my S.U.R.F. process, I help clients assess their SITUATION to UNCOVER limiting beliefs, then RADICALLY transform their mindset and FORMULATE concrete plans to achieve what they want.
Every person and every situation is unique.
When supporting clients through the S.U.R.F. process, I call on a variety of technique and skills to see optimal results. These include:
My own life experiences with change and adaptation
Visual, written, and verbal storytelling
Extensive personal and company branding experience
Let’s get specific…what do I support clients with most often?
Transforming destructive self-narratives and finding their “why”
Effective communication/influencing without authority
Developing self-confidence and self-awareness
Enhancing productivity and fulfillment
Creating a conscious culture (in companies, teams, groups)
Here’s what my clients are saying about our work together:
Lisa Marie Nelson, PhD, ACC, ELI-MP
Coach // Storyteller
a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
Wait. I think that story’s already been written.
If I had a magic wand, I’d give everyone the power to write their life story; the power to envision, create, and live their dream life.
I started my career as a scientist and marketer in the biotech/pharma industry. For more than a decade, I helped companies tell the story of their products.
I’m bringing those skills into my practice and pairing them with CoreEnergy coaching.
I know what it feels like to be standing at the crossroads of your life, with no idea how you’ll pay for food, find work, or feel good about yourself. I know what it feels like to think you’re at rock bottom, only to fall a little further. And, I know that climb up from those depths is work; it’s a lifetime of work. It’s work that I’m grateful for everyday and it’s why I have an all-consuming passion for the work I do.
When I’m not coaching or creating, I am honored to spend my life with an incredible partner and two (spoiled) rescue dogs in the San Francisco Bay area.
