You may be thinking…

"I know I have something to say. However, I feel nervous about saying it."

For example:

  • The doctor is not listening

  • Friends don't understand your feelings

  • Your client does not see your vision

It may even lead to a knot in your throat and feeling of being stagnant.


The days just tick by...

 without you sharing your important words.

Eventually others start to share exactly what you were thinking.


As a result, you feel a sense of hopelessness regarding being heard, seen, or known. 

Interested in Getting Your
Needs Met by Being Heard?


You can share with confidence.

Imagine waking up one morning…

You jump out of bed with excitement because you have something to say.

And your audience is leaning in to make sure to capture your brilliance.

For example:

  • You get the correct referral for your issue 

  • Your family is excited to hear your plans

  • The business colleagues loves your ideas

In that place...

You are only focused on the moment.

You are free of worries and/or shame. You have come to believe what is true.


Hi,   I'm Dr. Lisa

You are the one that gets to choose your path.

I am going to help you explore the elements blocking you from sharing your thoughts. 

We will determine how you can increase your comfort navigating the unknown, while remaining true to yourself.

As your insights arise you will explore challenging thoughts such as

starts at:

"I can't do this!"

"No one cares to hear me"

The goal is to move towards more uplifting thoughts such as

shift to:

"No one can share this the way that I do." 

"If I don't share, I am cheating others of my genius"

Exercises will be utilized to ensure you are able to fully see the picture you plan to have in the future.

For example:

  • Creating Positive Affirmation/Thoughts

  • Brainstorming

  • Picturing yourself, acting as if

Of Online Coaching with Dr. Lisa Battle-Gwathney, Ph.D.

"The best part of the session is its focus on how you can best show up for yourself. As a result of the session, my understanding of how to impact my professional identity became clearer.
I left the session feeling really empowered and excited to continue the work. Working with Dr. Lisa was very empowering because it was focused on me. I left with a deeper relationship with myself and a tailor-made plan for how to work towards my goals.
If someone is uncertain about starting coaching they should know the help is really safe and supportive. The session is about you and certainly worth jumping into." ​

Connesia Handford, Psy.D.

"Dr. Lisa is a great coach and truly has a gift for helping people accomplish their goals in a way that allows you to dream big and take small steps to achieving that dream.

Before coaching, my calendar was filled with busy work all the time and I was trying to identify how these things were connected to my overall personal and professional goals. As a result of the sessions, my perspective shifted about time and what really matters in my life. After each session, I felt Lighter. Always Lighter.


My favorite part of the coaching sessions was that your questions were powerful and allowed me to dig deep. Also, your empathy to stay with me throughout the session. In addition, your gift for helping me clarify and get to the root of the concern/challenge.


Your approach is holistic and yet grounded in strategy and yielding results. You are patient, you have an amazing toolbox that allows you to work with different clients so there is no cookie cutter approach."

Jocelyn Tejeda, MS, CPSC, CCLC,  Innovation and Leadership Development, Coach

"Dr. Lisa is a very knowledgeable coach that is passionate about helping others be the best versions of themselves. I would highly recommend her as a coach.


Prior to our sessions, I had a lot of balls in the air and needed some direction. My favorite part of the coaching sessions were the insights that Dr. Lisa shared. They really cause me to slow down and think, which often leads to a breakthrough moment for me. After our sessions, I always feel energized and ready to take on the world.


As a result, I gained a lot of clarity and focus. If you are feeling uncertain regarding coaching, Dr. Lisa will help you feel comfortable. Just relax, trust her, and the process."
