badass training for gentle souls

Do you want harmony, meaningful connection, and peace
without feeling like a doormat or turning into a bulldozer?

You have come to the right place.

  • You are capable, caring, and giving.
  • You have trouble saying no, and people keep taking advantage of your good nature and walk all over you.
  • You are depleted and you want everyone to just leave you alone.
  • You don't want to hurt anybody's feelings, so you stay quiet to keep the peace.
  • You find yourself lashing out because you have so much anger and resentment bottled up inside that you can't take it anymore.
  • You want to speak up and get out of this exhausting dynamic, but you feel stuck.

How do I know this?  Because I've been there.

Hi, I'm Lisa Fisher - conflict coach, mediator,
Yoga teacher, Black Belt in Kenpo Karate,
and recovering doormat.

I am here to guide you from feeling stressed, overwhelmed and resentful to
feeling calmer and more confident, even when things get tense.

Real talk:  There may always be people who try to take advantage of you, who disregard your needs, who ask too much, and who scare you or irritate you. There may always be times when you dread speaking up, when setting boundaries feels uncomfortable, and when you'd rather avoid a challenging conversation.

But you can get better at handling these situations!

I want to show you the most effective tools I know - and use myself! - and help you develop the skills to

  • manage your body's stress response and keep your emotions in check,
  • have open conversations to find solutions that work for everyone, and
  • build more balanced and meaningful relationships.

Together, we will explore

  • how your brain and your body respond when you feel threatened,
  • how you can maintain a sense of safety for yourself and the person in front of you,
  • how to stop overthinking and use the mind-body connection to feel more at ease,
  • how you can bring out your inner badass without turning into a fire-breathing dragon, and
  • how to express yourself and be heard and understood as the wonderful person you are.

Better communication, and more pleasant relationships, start with regulating your own emotional state:

When we are frustrated, angry or upset, we are not our smartest, kindest and most creative selves.  Calming our stressed nervous system - even if just a little bit - before we say or do anything reduces conflict, and creates more harmonious interactions.
