Self-awareness

Everyone deserves a safe space to be seen and heard

I am unashamedly mindful of my need for space, a slower pace, time to process - it’s not all about ‘outcomes,’ it’s about being open, receptive, and creating a loving space for myself and others to explore the changes they desire in their lives. In other words, I am called to be present and hold a safe space for others while I practice self-care.

When I found myself burned out 2+ years ago, I chose to do the work to figure out why. I was still passionate about the mission and vision of the work I was doing, and I had built strong relationships with many team members so why was I mentally and emotionally exhausted? After taking time for self-care, coaching, counseling, solitude and reflection, I realized that one of the root causes of my burnout was a shift in my personal values so I explored what a life aligned with my values could look like. Once I (re)identified my values, strengths, purpose and the types of work that truly light me up, I took action to embody them, which led to launching Blue Ocean Coaching & Consulting, LLC in July 2021.

Since that time, I’ve had truly life-changing opportunities to grow, learn and contribute to the greater good through 1:1 coaching with amazing people from around the world and co-facilitating workshops on cultivating confidence and belonging for women and refugees. 

I am now more aware of my need for space, a slower pace, time to process - it’s not all about ‘outcomes,’ it’s about being open, receptive, and creating a loving space for myself and others to explore the changes they desire in their lives. In other words, I am called to be present and hold a safe space for others while I practice self-care. 

Each year I donate 5% of my pre-tax income to non-profit organizations that are doing meaningful work aligned with my values. Through coaching, I have experienced the expansiveness and transformation that can occur when we invest in ourselves, as well as take action in our communities and the world, which is why I donate to organizations that are doing meaningful work that aligns with my values. I want others to experience this too. 

To make this happen, I am opening 10 60-minute spaces to folks who choose to do the inner and outer work by investing in themselves AND an organization aligned with their values. If you know someone who could benefit from 60 minutes of being seen and heard in a compassionate, safe and judgment-free space, please share this note with them. 

Here's how it works:

  • Make a tax-deductible donation (in any amount) to a charitable organization that is aligned with your values.
  • Here is a list of some of the organizations aligned with my personal values; however, it is not a requirement that you donate to one of these, please choose your own.
  • Send me a screenshot of your receipt (by DM or lisa@theblueoceancoach.com) and I'll send you a link to schedule a 60 minute session on my calendar.
  • No strings attached! 

One of the many things that lights me up is walking alongside as your coach to provide the space, care and support for you to access your inner wisdom and take the steps necessary to help you light up again!
