(NLP) is a system of tools referred to as “processes” that can be used in two ways to help a person make powerful changes in their lives.  First, NLP can help to clear old mental programs that create barriers to our happiness and success.  These show up in our life as unwanted behaviors, beliefs, and emotional and trauma triggers that interfere in our highest potential; and second, NLP has tools to help build resources that lead to higher emotional intelligence and practical skills that can better serve the individual's needs. 


Much of human behavior is unconscious, created from the data gathered during the "imprint stage" in the first 7 years of life.  These data are received through the five

senses and stored in our brain in the form of language and emotional response, forming our personal values, beliefs, and attitudes, eventually becoming the foundation of our unique model of the world, our template for who we are and what we believe about and value in life.  

For some, this inheritance becomes burdensome to carry, especially when we are unable to choose how we respond to certain circumstances related to our programming.  Because much of our behavior is generated in the unconscious mind, it can be difficult to shift our behavior using the conscious (waking, thinking) mind alone.


NLP offers processes that aid the individual in clearing unconscious responses, helping to build resources that better serve today's intentions and goals.

Working with Lisa can take a minimum of 2 one-hour sessions, for a simple goal.  Most clients are able to complete their goals within 4 sessions, though complex challenges may require more. During the first session, you will discuss your goals and beliefs about what holds you back from being your best self.  Though some discussion about past responses may be necessary, Lisa is not a therapist and there is no need to go into all of your history or details of trauma.  We will focus on what you want to achieve now.  


In successive sessions, the NLP processes are utilized to help build any resources needed and clear unwanted patterns and behavior.  


NLP has a variety of tools that can be utilized, which are often like a guided meditation.  Results are immediate, and lasting, though some complex challenges may require a multi-faceted approach that takes longer to resolve.

How does NLP work?

  • Neuro- Nerves (referred to as the nervous system) that exist throughout the mind and body are the electrical system of the body. Each system of nerves has its own chemical formula, amps of electricity, and power capabilities.  Throughout the nervous system are magnetic fields which are controlled by the chemicals of the body.  The Brain is the center of this magnetic field and is controlled by conscious and unconscious thought impulses. Emotions trigger the chemicals that activate the system. Thoughts are the electricity, emotions are the magnetism of the systems, and the chemicals needed come from the physiology of the body, generated by ideas and thoughts. As we realign with desired changes, our neurology changes, and our neurological framework changes, leading to changes in our behavior and experience of life.

  • Linguistic- Language and nonverbal communication through which our neurology and representation systems are coded is used internally and externally. It is more than communication, it is a way we make meaning and understanding to describe our experiences. Changing our language changes our physiology and neurology.


  • Programming- From birth to age 8, humans experience the "imprint stage."  During this stage of life, all humans input data from all five senses, language and feelings. This data are recorded by the unconscious mind and stored within the brain, thus forming our system of programming, patterns and beliefs. The unconscious mind cannot judge or discern among this data, but merely stores and keeps it within our brain, body, and along our neurological framework as the template from which our life patterns or personal programs develop. These programs are held in the unconscious mind, throughout our neurological framework, and in the body. We access the majority of these programs through the unconscious mind, and by our sensate knowing. They affect our behaviors and are often thought of as automatic behaviors, beliefs, or habits. 

As you work with NLP, you can organize behaviors into component parts on both the verbal and nonverbal levels, offering unlimited possibilities for change and learning. NLP offers a deliberate way to use your brain to create the life you want.
